Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elisabeth Greenberg
This entry in “The Other Side of the Story” series alternates the voices of the Good and the Bad Fairy as they explain the real mixed-up story of Sleeping Beauty. Edna claims that BF did not stand for Bad Fairy originally, but rather Best Fairy, a title given her by the king. Unfortunately, Edna began to forget things and mix-up words, finally saying “die” instead of “cry” at Sleeping Beauty’s christening. Her younger sister Stella, the Good Fairy, quickly tried to fix things by substituting a hundred year sleep for death. Good-hearted Edna tries to fix things herself on Sleeping Beauty’s 16th birthday, but once again her plans go awry. Again, Stella fixes things as well as she can, this time shedding sleep on all in the castle. Both fairy sisters are there at the wake-up kiss, to wish well on all. This amusing retelling of the Sleeping Beauty story lends itself to reading-aloud in two voices, either by the teacher or by students. The core curriculum questions included at the end are more suitable for older children, although the third question about what blunders Edna makes and how they are fixed could be discussed easily with younger children on a third or fourth reading. Reviewer: Elisabeth Greenberg AGERANGE: Ages 4 to 8.

Meet the Author

When Trisha Speed Shaskan was a girl, she wanted to become a superhero. Her mother gave her a Wonder Woman costume. Her dad crafted her a tiara and bracelets out of metal to match. Trisha imagined she could fight evil, fly an invisible airplane, and get anyone to tell the truth. While she didn’t grow up to be Wonder Woman, she still uses her imagination to write stories and to teach creative writing.
Trisha has taught creative writing to children and adults for thirteen years. She has published 26 books for children, and more are forthcoming. She has an MFA in creative writing from Minnesota State University, Mankato.

Trisha currently lives in Minneapolis with her husband, Stephen, and their cat, Eartha, named after Eartha Kitt, famous for her role as Catwoman.
