The Fairy Book is a wonderfully entertaining story about a girl named Isabel who is chosen by the fairies to fight off a dark sorcerer named Rashkai. The story is written in various styles of poetry, which combine and flow beautifully. In writing this story, Svetlana Kovalkova-McKenna teams up with her 9-year-old daughter Alexandra. Alexandra's illustrations are interspersed throughout the story. At the end of the book, Svetlana has included examples of all styles of poetry written by Alexandra.
Both The Fairy Book story and the variety of poetry had me smiling as I read. The world Svetlana and Alexandra created is imaginative, captivating, and just plain fun. This mother-daughter duo is a talented pair and an inspiration for all of us.
