A whimsical, goofy little short story that has the feel of a fairy tale, or a story told among family or friends when doing chores together. I'd give it 4 stars for the initial idea and down-home folksy feel, along with an "all's well that end's well" conclusion.
The ebook formatting drove me a little nuts and I spent a bit of time making it more readable for myself. There are minor grammatical issues that made me suppress an urge to go on comma patrol. The frustration led me to dock a star in the ratings, though I'm probably quibbling.
The story was free and makes no pretensions, so the formatting and other extraneous aspects didn't stop me from liking it overall. If someone read it aloud to me, or if it was a story told at bedtime, or around the campfire to while away the time, I would say it was just fine the way it is. The cover photo is a hoot and worth five stars on its own. Anyone who could look at it and not feel the urge to smile or make mental room for a story should dust off their imagination and give it a little sunshine.
