Read an Excerpt

"Not far from here lies the entrance to the Cave of Courage. The Cave of Courage produces courage for all of mankind. Every one hundred years, the cave must be recharged. This is done by an organized team effort between magical creatures. For this recharging, Mother Nature has chosen a dwarf, a leprechaun, a gnome, a troll, two brownies, and four fairies to participate."

I believe we need more of this type of book, not only to help our children through this crazy world but also, to lend a message of positive hope to the world in general. I have never outgrown my children's book, and I am a granny five times over. I recently discovered this book series and am delighted and amazed by the positive messages and gentle lessons. In Periwinkle and the Cave of Courage, the young girls/fairies have to work not only with each other, but with a variety of other beings, all with different personalities and views. Although Periwinkle leads the adventure, each of the other characters contributes to the success of their mission-to recharge the Cave of Courage. The team members learn respect for one another and help each other greatly. This is a beautiful fairy tale and it has a wonderful message for young and old alike.
