I think it's a really sweet story, *magical* illustrations, and worth the purchase.
32 pages of actual story, including pictures.
For this review, I'll discuss some tips & challenges for reading to a 3 year old, since that what I've been doing most, and that's a bit below the recommended age for this story.
* Discuss the pictures more, and read less of the text. E.g. you can see faces on the trees because it's a magic forest, and cut back the text you read to a gist.
* Use familiar language. I explained the witch was brewing a magical soup, and the little ones seemed to find 'magic soup' way more fascinating.
* Use actions - stirring soup, playing the drum, falling leaves, blocking your ears etc.
* I was very seriously told when reading the 8th page "dancing with the rabbits and deer and birds" that I had missed the fox (skunk?) because that was in the picture, and not the text, and on a later page that 'Sally Violet' wasn't there, because she wasn't in the picture (I said she was probably behind the tree). So, again, adapt it a little so they can really clearly understand the relation between the words and the pictures, as the pictures are a bit abstract (and the kid on pg 6 is either cartwheeling or wearing butterfly wings depending on insistence).
Oddly, despite thinking it's a bit complex for 3 years of age, it's a popularly requested story!
