The now a days fairy book
The Now-a-Days Fairy Book by Anna Alice ChapinThree children spend the summer with their grandmother in the country and have lots of fantastical adventures. In this charming book, dolls come to life, a mirror provides a view of the past, and fairies are real. While the titles of many of the chapters are reminiscent of traditional fairy tales, they are actually unique stories with only faint connections to the traditional tales. Jesse Willcox Smiths soft, beautiful pictures lend a further air of fantasy to the book. The only thing I found annoying was the authors insistence on making the youngest child, a boy of 6, speak with a lisp. It was such a distraction! Aside from that, I would love to see this reprinted for todays children. Lovely!
