Portable Mistletoe
Portable Mistletoe rated it 3 years ago
This is really not a children’s book. Like most real fairy tales, these stories and their intricate illustrations are much darker than their Disney counterparts, more violent and bloodthirsty, with very adult themes. The book contains 7 re-imagined classic fairy tales, tied (woven, ha ha) together b...

White Christmas is one of my favorite seasonal songs as well as one of my favorite Irving Berlin numbers. So when I learned that one of my favorite illustrators had created a children's book based on the song, I knew it had to be winner. Turns out even Hague and I can miss each other in our presen...

I had of course seen the Disney movie, but it was years ago and I couldn't really remember much details about it. But when the group challenge on one of my forums requested books featuring pirates, this was the only book I could think of. I was pleasantly surprised. I've found that quite some stor...

Decent place to start for anyone into (or just getting into) Tolkien's Middle Earth and the characters in it.Introduces Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf, 13 Dwarves and Smaug the dragon.Some humour, various scrapes and adventures along the way, and a final large battle.

I like this surreal story on growing up & make-believe & I think it's one of the very few children's books that can speak to both children & adults profoundly & stand the test of time, though I can imagine some ppl may consider it inappropriate to their young children. SJ Tucker's somewhat more ligh...

I remember reading Peter Pan when I was little and not liking it at all. I now know why. Little Mary was somewhat of a responsible child. Seriously. Don't know where it went, but I was sort of an old soul for a kid. Now I go see Disney on Ice productions of Rockstar Disney characters. It's a weir...
