Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Kristen's parents take her on a vacation to Maine and show her a village of little houses made from natural materials in the woods that humans have made for fairies. The child builds her own miniature home and returns each morning to find only animals enjoying it. However, on the last day, after seeing only a deer licking the salt off seashells placed at the entrance to her little building, Kristen falls into a light slumber. It is then that she is rewarded with the fairies appearing to her as thanks for respecting the woods and its animals. The fairies glow so brightly that she must close her eyes, and when she reopens them they have changed into beautiful monarch butterflies. Children will be eager to build a fairy house with the inspiring suggestions provided by the author at the end of the book. Kane's fanciful illustrations are colorful, and their somewhat muted appearance on the page add to the child's dreamlike trip.-Meghan R. Malone, Turner Free Library, Randolph, MA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
