Out of the bowl climbed the most handsome man Areti had ever seen: Mr. Semolina-Semolinus, a man more beautiful than love itself, and twice as rare/5(6). It's nice to read a story where the princess is the hero rather than the prince, though I felt that Mr.

Muted colors, quirky composition, and the characters' theatrical poses all contribute /5(5). Told in the fashion of a Greek folktale, this story from newcomers Manna and Mitakidou has neither the steam nor the invention to match the Mr. Semolina-Semolinus book artwork of Potter's debut.
