This is a straight up fairy tale with a great message, that's clearly and engagingly put forward. The narrator was brilliant too, really suited the tone of the story and delivered the gentle mockery of old-fashioned British etiquette superbly.

It felt like the ending was quite a sudden departure from the pacing of the story, but it still wrapped things up nicely just like all good fairy tales should.
