It’s the new and improved Pixie And The Green Book Mystery. Young readers will join Pixie, our second grade hero, on a quest to save the fairy tales. It’s an apple disaster day of school, but a trip to the local library changes everything. A mysterious book has brought the characters to life out of their books. But getting them safely back in their stories won’t be easy, with the evil Book Guardian trolling the library. Buckle up for an action-packed, fantastical, wacky, journey.
A unique and wonderful fairy tale!
Pixie and the Green Book Mystery (updated version) is about a nine-year-old girl called Pixie (whose real name is Marigold) as she interacts with some well-known fairy tale characters. Not only does Pixie interact with the characters, but the characters also interact with each other from the different fairy tales. We have Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella, the Seven Dwarfs and others, who find that their stories have been jumbled up. It’s up to Pixie to save the day. Of course, there’s also a bad guy who she must contend with!
This was a very enjoyable and entertaining story. The writing style was engaging and very entertaining. As I read through the pages I found myself recalling all the fairy tales that fascinated me as a child. It sparked wonderful memories as I remembered my own mother reading these stories to me. But the author adds a unique twist as she weaves a tale that intertwines other fairy tales as the following excerpt shows.
“Things got better when Brownie, the Third Little Pig moved to town, Alice continued. “Brownie used to run a bakery with his two brothers, until they were eaten by the Big Bad Wolf. And not wanting to be next on the menu, Brownie started VAC, or the Villain Awareness Company. He called the Seven Dwarf body guards from Snow White and asked for help. Underdogs like himself needed protection. Except, he was an underpig. Anyway, the Seven Dwarfs agreed to join VAC and rid the land of evil villains by banishing them into other books.”
This is a wonderful children’s book by author Coraline Grace. I absolutely enjoyed reading this book with my grand-kids and it brought more than a few smiles to our faces. They loved not only the story, but also the amazing illustrations by Encarna Dorado.
This was my first time reading this author and I must say I was very impressed. It seems to me that this book has been created with a lot of love and joy and it is very obvious that the author really enjoys creating such wonderful books. I have shared this story with my own family and we have all found great delight in it. Thank you for sharing with us the gift that you have obviously worked so hard to refine. Five stars from us. Since I have two grand kids, that’s fifteen stars from us! We’ll be looking forward to seeing what’s coming next in this series. Well done Coraline!
