So I've been talking about this fairy book for weeks now. Sorry for being such a tease. TA-DA! 'My Very Own Fairy Stories' by Johnny Gruelle. You guys might not even think it looks worth all the build up, but I'm telling you, when the book came out of the package, I gasped and squealed. Books that make me gasp and squeal, more so than usual, that's a special kind of adrenaline rush.
My heart pounds over special books.
When I found out that Johnny Gruelle, creator of my beloved Raggedy Ann books, had written this one, I had it ordered in five fiftieths of a second. WILL YOU LOOK AT THIS SWEET LITTLE BOOK?
Now don't be disturbed if you get it too and are like, where's all the fairies, yo? Not a lot of actual fairy action. Some. Mostly these are funny little fairy tales. And in one story some moles get turned into a mole skin cloak.
(yeah. it happens. Julia was like, 'did they die?' And then she calmly waited for the rest of the story. it's best that you hear these things from me first. but they magically come back to life and everyone is fine and yay! so don't freak over that story.)
We haven't read every single story yet, but we're read several. I'm excited to read the one about a 'Witchess'. The story about the funny caterpillar lady (see above) is really cute.
I just love books like these. They don't make books like these days. A lot of awesome books are made every day. But not like these. Oh and this book has been reprinted so you can get it brand new!
