"A Fairly Fairy Tale" is Sunshine's Somerville's first #children's #book with #medieval elements. It is about the #cheerful, independent 19-year old Littagale who rather wants to experience and go on #adventures than marrying a #prince. However, it is time for Littagale to marry because her father, King Wesick can't deny the marriage proposals of every prince for a thousand miles anymore and each day more and more arrive. That's why Littagale and her stepmother Mattea plan to get Littagale away from the palace and who could help more than a kidnapping #dragon who is the most feared and prominent in the whole country? It's wonderful to see how Littagale breaks out of her difficult position she is in and how instead of being the #damsel-in distress, she gains the reader's heart by being the #hero herself and having thoughtful and #insightful ideas of her own. Of course, there is also the enemy: the arrogant, egoistic Prince Deke of Archwild with his black clothes and blond, slicked black hair who only wants the crown to gain with all costs. Plus Points: It is correctly formatted for younger children so the fairy tale can be used as one of the first reading experiences. And the main characters are mostly good role models and positive characters whom the young children can identify with. There is the lisping cousin Opal, the elderly aunt Maeve, the humorous Prince Nolan, who always loves to snatch some yummy food out of sight, the lovely stepmother Mattea, who can't cook and the kind Prince Casper is some of the most relevant and favorite of mine. I also really love the descriptions of the dragon and how he is introduced at first. … All in all, it is an #imaginative, little story with a different turn and story than usual for a fairy tale and with many pleasant adventures and figures and therefore a nice story you can read with your schoolchildren together or for 10-12-year old’s who are excited and fascinated by fairy tales in general. It is also a #delightful for holiday reading! 3-Stars! 588 more words. Full review: https://goo.gl/K2hjeH #fairytale #bookstagram #books #bücher
