A tale in which everything, even the tightly constructed plot, is built on the rules of clockmaking.
The ethical principles of this children story are surprisingly in line with the steampunk agenda: a good automaton, not to talk about a truly stunning breathtaking lifelike piece of art, is only realized through workmanship and sweat.

A wonderful short story that will creep you out and draw you in with its simple and beautiful language and dreamy black and white illustrations.
The first part: very well crafted, looked very promising. Highest point? The arrival of the doctor. What a character, what an entrance.
The second part: everything goes to place to easily, and without repercussions (unbelievable: what about the poor princess?)
Just for children, this time.
