Description

What would you do if diamonds and rubies tumbled out of your mouth every time you spoke? Well, that′s what happens to Rosella after a run with a misguided fairy in "A Fairy′s Mistake." If you were turned into a toad, would you pine after your prince as much as Parsley does in "For Biddle′s Sake?"

The road to happily-ever-after is never easy, but the masterful touch of Newbery Honor author Gail Carson Levine will keep readers laughing their way through these fresh retellings of popular fairy tales.

THE FAIRY′S MISTAKE

THE PRINCESS TEST

PRINCESS SONORA AND THE LONG SLEEP

CINDERELLLIS AND THE GLASS HILL

FOR BIDDLE′S SAKE

THE FAIRY′S RETURN

Ages 7-12
