    Do you like retelling of fairy tales? Gail Carson Levine is the author for you She is witty and pokes fun at fairy tales all the while making you love the story even “ King Harrumphrey tapped the scroll “Not that ‘any harrumph’”The scribe wrote noble in tiny letters to the left of man The king was getting annoyed “Not ‘any harrumphman’ ‘Any harrumph’” – For Biddle’s Sake by Gail Carson LevineJust by this part of the book you can grasp the humor Levine puts in her words Her use of run on sentences leaves you out of breath and laughing from the repetitiveness Her objective to point out the obvious will keep you entertained In this instance she has a king that replaces words with harrumph and expects people to know what he meansThe Fairy’s Return a fairy tale based on the German fairy tale The Goose Girl by Brothers Grimm is about a little princess and a baker’s son who fall in love The baker’s son Robin never gets to finish a job with his two word inventing brothers and rhymer father The Princess Lark never gets to play a game fairly because everyone is afraid to let her fail at oneKing Harrumphrey will not let her marry Robin when he finally treats her like a real person The baker will not let Robin marry Lark when she listens and laughs at all his jokesThe king decided to hold a contest for all the princes to come make her laugh So Princess Lark thinks of sad things to make herself cry for days because of her love for RobinFairy Ethelinda remember her from ‘The Fairy’s Mistake? gifts Robin with a golden goose after a series of events That won’t accomplish his dream to marry the princess but it is a startWill Fairy Ethelinda get over her fear of giftingcuring people? Will Robin have to marry the innkeeper’s third daughter Golly? Will Lark laugh at an unexpected prince and be forced to marry him? Will Robin ever finish a joke with his family? Will Lark ever be treated as a normal person? Will the end up happily ever after? Will the goose ever get a break?Levine has a splash of humor you will not find anyone else Using plays on words and awkward humor this is perfect for a story for a young girl or for a grown woman who can’t get enough of fairy tales cough me I will always be a fan of Levine’s writing and I am so happy I picked them up first on my own uest to reread all my favorite books

    This seemed like an original tale rather than a fairytale retelling It had less magic and annoying adults The romance was overly exaggerated and under justified

    It took awhile for me to recognize this as a version of “The Golden Goose” I only know the tale because I was in a play based on it as a kid it brought back fond memories of that experience As the last of the six tales in the series this does a good job of bringing the collection full circle as the fairy in the first tale The Fairy’s Mistake redeems herself Again there is a romance based on friendship and an established relationship and ualities other than appearanceEva theme in Levine’s work This and the previous two tales use the same troupe of the hero being the youngest of three brothers and the older two brothers treat him terribly The euivalent of the wicked stepsisters of Cinderella and there seem to be many lesser known tales involving three brothers But with Levine’s creativity I wish she had changed up the formula for at least one of the tales I’m not sure the brothers in this tale were fully necessary as there are other stronger antagonists As a stand alone it wouldn’t make much difference but as this story relies on another and is part of a series it creates a bit too much repetitionStill it’s a cute story with a bunch of pun based jokes some kids might get a kick out of

    For a complete review check out my Young Adult book blog and Robin are perfect for each other – except for the fact that she is a princess and he is a baker’s son Despite their efforts to be together their families will not allow it But is The Fairy’s Return powerful enough to change that? Can the fairy Ethelinda make a way for these two lovebirds?Are you an avid reader of YA fiction? If so please consider becoming a follower of my blog or participating by leaving comments I love hearing from my fellow book lovers

    Another clever and interesting retelling Funny tooEthelinda is back and I kept on hoping she won't screw up again Well good thing she didn't I would have flipped xDAll the Harrumph was annoying meeee so muchhhhAnyway good easy and fun read This series is perfect for all ages although for me it would yield better results and imaginations on children and pre teens I remember wishing fairies were real when I was a kid reading Ella Enchanted even though their gifts are most often terrible It was fun before but not so much now xD Love GCL for introducing me to my love of reading with Ella Enchanted 3

    Listened to as an audiobookThe second of 'The Princess Tales' series I've read and I just didn't enjoy this one as much as 'Princess Sonora and the Long Sleep' Sometimes exaggerations are what makes something funny but here the whole 'I've been in love with you for FOUR YEARS after meeting you ONCE and hearing three jokes' flipped over into unsatisfying for me It also didn't have a satisfying resolution I think I would've enjoyed it if the solution had been less Deus ex machina but maybe that was just a result of the fairytale it was based upon There were some fun jokes and maybe I'd have loved it as a child but it just wasn't uite enough

    I have always enjoyed Ms Levine's stories and this one doesn't disappointIt is a retelling of The Golden Goose and it is filled with humor and large doses of just plain funI thought his jokes were pretty funny I have included just a fewWhat's a dwarf's favorite food? Strawberry shortcakeWhich rank of nobility is best a math? A countWhy is a king like a yardstick? They are both rulersOkay I can hear you groaning now But Princess Lark loved them and that is all that counts LOL


  8. Jackson Matthews Jackson Matthews says:

    The annoying get their due and good prevails through the travails This series is a soothing counterpoint to reading Roxane Gay's books once you've been in the fire too long a smooth cooling drink of 'plant based milk product' is needed


  9. Heidi Heidi says:

    I am not going to rate it because I'm honestly not sure I liked parts of it but I found other parts hard to follow Maybe it's because I was listening and all the grunts were audible Anyway finished the series anyway
