Fairly Fairy Tales

Written by Esme Raji Codell

Illustrated by Elisa Chavarri


This charming picture book refers to many traditional fairy tales that we know and love, but the author does it with a special flair.  The context is bedtime for a youngster who is approximately two years old whose response to bedtime is "no."  As the child's mother refers to familiar details about each fairy tale, the child answers, "yes." That is true until the end of each fairy tale when a connection is made to modern times, then the answer changes.  You will laugh out loud as you read these references to modern life and the answer that goes with them. Making inferences has never been so much fun!
