The Fairy Tale Handbook Review

Disclosure: Candlewick Press gave me a copy of this book free of charge to review. All opinions in my review are my own and I did not receive any other compensation. As in all my reviews I am providing links for your ease, but receive no compensation.

My review today is of Hazel's newest favorite book. She has read this book over the phone about three or four times to my parents for her nightly story to them in the week or so that we have had it. She absolutely loves it! The book is The Fairy-Tale Handbook by Libby Hamilton and illustrated by Tomislav Tomic.

 Now it could be all the fun things to do in this book. Every page has something to open and lots to read and do. The book tells readers about various fairy tales some Hazel has never heard as well as the characters. It goes through forests, the wild wood with the villains, animals, magical villains, thumb-size characters, towns, princesses, palaces and homes and end with Cinderella's wedding and all the characters are guests. It has a little quiz at the end as well. It even has a few of the fairy tales in little books that you open on the pages.





In the sample page above, there are pages over the fairy section in the lower right corner. This book is a combination of everything that Hazel loves--princesses, fairies, and fairy tales with the added fun of the doors to lift, wheels to turn and more. 

I can honestly say this book is definitely a must have for any child who loves fairy tales. I hope you will check it out! For more fairy tale posts check out my Fairy Tales from Different Countries Series!
