Boy Meets Princess, And It S Love At First Sight Both Laugh Of The Same Jokes Both Are Named After Birds His Name Is Robin, Hers Is Lark Could There Ever Have Been A Perfect Match But Alas King Harrumphrey Won T Let Lark Marry A Baker S Son And Robin Is Betrothed To Someone ElseNow Toss In Robin S Nonsense Talking Brothers, Nat And Matt, Their Versifying Father, And Ethelinda, The Fairy Who Wrought Havoc In The Fairy S Mistake, And You Ve Got A Nutcrazical Situation A Hilarious Spoof On The Golden Goose By The Brothers Grimm, The Fairy S Return Is The Sixth Princess Tale From Beloved Newbery Honor Author And Master Fairy Tale Reteller Gail Carson Levine It feels like it s own story. Retelling of the Golden Goose Robin baker s son wins the heart of Lark princess Earlier in the year before Harriet started reading, she went through a princess phase She s still mad about princesses but now she prefers to draw them instead of reading about them She also went through a period where she wanted to be read to during her long baths So we read through Gail Carson Levine s short chapter books.The Fairy s Return by Gail Carson Levine is her unique take on the Golden Goose fairy tale There s Robin, the baker s son and the very bored Princess Lark, and a fairy trying to do good but not necessarily getting it right.Harriet s not familiar with the original story but she thought it was funny that the boy and the girl both had bird names Of all the books from this series we read, this one didn t hold her attention as well as others did. Gail Carson Levine has a very deft and light touch when it re telling classic fairytales At first, I was reminded of James Thurber s Thirteen Clocks and Edward Lear s The Ring and the Rose Even though The Golden Goose was one of my favorite stories as a child I loved the ridiculous imagery I didn t connect The Fairy s Return with The Golden Goose until, well, the golden goose What a delightful, quick read this book was I m sure the characters will stay with me long past the final word. , p
