Midwest Book Review
First published as a serial story in the newspapers, "Julie & The Lost Fairy Tale" is now compiled into the form of a novel for children and young adults. An original and captivating tale, "Julie & The Lost Fairy Tale" follows the relationship between Julie, her grandmother, and a mysterious travel chest. Highly recommended for community library young adult fiction collections.
Millie Jedrosko
 "I love it. It is unique and fascinating and the students will love it too." Millie Jedrosko, a school teacher in Olean, NY (Mille tied the story of Julie with literacy history, immigration studies and the use of the imagination in fictional writing.)
Pat Gustafson
"We eagerly anticipated the serialized stories.  Julie & The Lost Fairy Tale was an especially good read, in addition to a fine vehicle for modeling 'showing writing.'  The author's use of descriptive language was outstanding!" Pat Gustafson Elementary Teacher in North East Middle School, Erie, PA

    Julie & The Lost Fairy Tale A Great Hallmark Production

    I like to read, but find it hard to get into reading a book, it must hold my interest. When I finally find one, I usually cannot put it down. This one got my attention. There were parts of the book, up to the end, that brought tears of joy to my eyes. I would like to see it in one of the Hallmark Movies. I really enjoyed it, and I think people need to know about this book. Please help me bring it about. Thank you

    Charming modern-day fairy tale

    Every kid knows there are treasures waiting for them in Grandmother¿s attic. When Julie goes up to investigate, she expects to find baby squirrels. Instead she discovers a lost fairy tale. The original owner of the manuscript came to the United States fifty years ago with the goal of seeing it published. Since she wasn¿t able to complete her mission, Julie takes over for her, making a promise to see the fairy tale in print. Julie¿s quest to fulfill her promise sets in motion her own magical fairy tale. The reader will delight in her enthusiasm and determination in achieving her mission. And this story, just like the best fairy tales, has a happy ending that will leave you smiling. Reviewer: Alice Berger, Bergers Book Reviews

    It All Starts in the Attic

    If you can recall the sense of awareness you felt as a child, the intimacy with family members, the thrill of climbing into a musty attic, unknown adventures waiting every time you opened the door and went out into the hot summer days, then this book is for you. Julie feels no doubt about her place in a loving family, and finds a way to express that affection in return. Along the way she encounters a bit of history, plenty of memorable characters around town, and a mystery to puzzle out. What more can you ask for in a good book? If you are a parent in search of wholesome reading for your child, look no further.

    Satisfied reader, Reading PA

    This book will certainly appeal to a young girl's imagination. Julie is presented as a spunky, determined girl. I appreciated the close relationship she had with her grandmother. The message is very positive and uplifting. It teaches the importance of friendships. It encourages reading and promotes interest in history. This is a story that parents can feel good about. I hope the author writes many more stories like this one.

    Excellent read for all ages!

    I bought this book and finished reading it the very same day! The words on the pages flowed so nicely and the chapters are written in such a way that makes it wonderful for classroom reading for children. But it also keeps readers(like myself) interested, since each chapter conveys a complete scene and is full of excitement that leads into suspense to know what the next chapter will bring and you are not content until you know how things turn out for Julie, her 'Grams', and Cordelia! This book contains the beauty and innocence of life that is lost in so many other works we see or read about in today's world another good reason why this book is a great idea for classroom reading(lesson plans are available through the author's web site) for children. I hope to see more of this author's works published in the near future! :)
