Fairy Tales with a Twist 

 

Although well known, your kids may not recognize the traditional tales in these uniquely told versions.  Using humor, adventure and courage, each author charms and engages the reader.  "The Paper Bag Princess" is a must-read for every little girl, while "The Quiltmaker's Gift" is a wonderful lesson for all.  If you kids like humor, "Falling for Rapunzel" along with "And the Dish Ran Away with the Spoon" are sure to please!
