This is a self-published children's novel, and is better than many I've bought with the backing of known publishers! Using the time-honoured tradition of fairies giving gifts at the child's christening, Heidi tells a humorous, entertaining yet perilous tale of The Ordinary Knight, and how his very ordinariness ... well, that would be telling!

The second story (the book has two!) is a sequel, set some years later; and tells the sad story of the invisible princess. Again, another time-honoured fairy story tradition is employed, that of having princess turn up from various realms in an attempt to 'cure' the princess of her invisibility, and how being desperate for something can cloud one's judgement.

This book would make an excellent gift for a child who is just learning to love reading entire novels for themselves, or to be read at bedtime by a grown-up (careful though - you might not want to put it down!).

Note: Being self-published, the book has not been picked through by a copy editor, and there are a couple of bits that have been missed amongst the thousands of words. You could make finding them a challenge for your child!

Fairy Tale Done With Flair 22 Oct. 2013
By Kristin R. Mang - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love these stories. They were precious and done to a turn. I quickly fell in love with the hero's and heroines. Their sweet simplicity and strength of character would be welcomed into any nursery. There are no shrinking violets waiting for their lives to happen, and that is powerful !!!

Good stories 26 Nov. 2014

I got a kick out of these stories that give hope to all of us who don't have magic powers. If you like fairy tales, you should like this.

Great evening read =) 17 Mar. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on

This was a cute pair of stories; I enjoyed both of them immensely. They characters were thoughtfully rendered and the style was very reminiscent of the classic fairy tales of my youth. I loved the take on fairies as well, the creative "insight" into the character of them was a novel twist. We've heard of evil fairies; but making them less perfect and more human was a great idea. I'd love to see this expanded on in another book.

Great Quick Read 20 Feb. 2014
By Laurie Shapiro - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found both stories in this book to be imaginative and creative. They were both quick reads and great for a travel book. I was left wondering what happened to the lady who was turned into a bird in the second book. Did she fly away? Was she kept as a pet as penance for her bad behavior? This book is great for anyone who likes fairy tales from child to adult.

Pretty good 21 Sept. 2013
By Cheryl K Saiki - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed reading these stories. I thought the tone was a bit uneven, seeming geared to young children at some points and preteens in others. However, that did not detract from my enjoyment. I think the main characters were interesting and well developed. I was quite caught up in the stories after a couple of chapters.
