How do the various kingdom and heroine names from the Land-of-Almost-Awake inform your understanding of Granny's stories? Did you agree with how their real world counterparts were represented in the stories?

Names play a significant part in Elsa's grandmother's stories. How do the various kingdom and heroine names from the Land-of-Almost-Awake (Miamas, Miploris, Mimovas, Wolfheart, the Chosen One, the sea-angel, etc) inform your understanding of Granny's stories? Did you agree with how their real world counterparts were represented in the stories?

Frankly, this isn't a favorite book of mine. I was confused with the stories and I felt Elsa was portrayed as too young in actual age for the intellect she was supposed to have. Maybe because I'm not too much into fantasy?

I was also confused with the fantasy stories. I read them but they took away from my enjoyment of the rest of the novel. I thought Elsa was too young to read Harry Potter.

It was a bit confusing at first, but after I caught on I tried to match each fantasy character with the neighbor character before I read that part.
