Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

The Book

This is a wonderful adventure story featuring a story-within-a-bedtime-story.  Two small girls travel though a magical imaginary world and encounter many characters from classic fairy tales.  

Written in rhyme that is embedded in colourful, detailed illustrations, this book makes a perfect read aloud.  The girls encounter timeless characters from Puss in Boots, The Pied Piper of Hamlin, Hansel and Gretel, Charlotte's Web, Humpty Dumpty and Alice in Wonderland.  A great follow up would be securing these classics and introducing them to your child also.  

The author's bestselling book "Stepping Stones: A Refugee Family's Journey" won the Bolen Books Children's Book Prize (207) and was shortlisted for many other awards.  This is a wonderful clever book that I highly recommend.
