This was a pretty fast, short read (12 pages). For a short story, there really is a lot of adventure and characters that are introduced and the writing is descriptive and easy to imagine the world and the faces.
It was like a puzzle adventures, fairytale feeling. Light hearted fun and mischief. Probably a little darker than your average fairy-tale.
Alice in Wonderland mashed with Something Wicked This Way Comes.
