Book Review: The Woman Who Flummoxed the Fairies
By: Staff at Storyteller.net

“The Woman Who Flummoxed The Fairies” (August House Publishers) tells the story of a bakerwoman who finds a clever way to outsmart the Fairie King after she is kidnapped by the fairies and told to bake a cake for them. With the help of a howling dog, sleeping cat, and her “wee babe,” the bakerwoman manages to return to her own home, safe and sound.

The Woman Who Flummoxed the Fairies Based on a Scottish folktale, this retelling by Heather Forest is fun, witty, and just a bit magical. Her choice of words has a pleasant flow, and helps to create a wonderful, whimsical story that will get your imagination going.

The illustrations, done by Susan Gaber, are colorful and detailed, giving the reader a true sense of the chaos and mischief that takes place in the story. While nicely illustrated, we think that the details of the illustrations will probably appeal more to the adults than the kids.

“The Woman Who Flummoxed The Fairies” is a great story with a cast of fun characters that will have older children giggling within the first few pages.

We received a review copy of this book from the publisher.
