The Fairy Babies
My children and I love fairy-tales. We have all the Andrew Lang "color" books of fairy-tales, Grimm's, Andersen's, Greek myths, Norse legends, etc. All are worn and tattered and are picked up and re-read often. We might even be connoisseurs of fairy-tales. This book was pretty much a dud.
I consoled myself with the latest Flavia de Luce mystery, As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust, by Alan Bradley. On to a biography of Christopher Wren!
