Thank you so much to Author Jessie L Best for sending me a ebook to read and review.

Review: This unique book tells fairytales and fantasy stories in both short stories and in poetry, it’s so magically thought out, so creative and makes for a wondrous read.

From pirates, to fairies, to elves, to witches, to magic and so much more the stories and poems are so vividly described giving your mind the ability to wander straight into the world before you. Some of the stories are a new take on classic stories you may know and others aren’t but each story and poem is so unique and individual, you’ll escape right in with the characters in this fantasy book.

This was written as a bedtime story that children will enjoy at night and honestly I would say that’s a perfect depiction for this, it will give them something to dream about putting themselves in the adventure or fantasy worlds that was read before them. It’s a great addition to any nighttime routine.

Each short story and poem comes with a couple illustrations that pick up on the important parts or characters of the particular stories before them. It’s always great when a book can give a visual image.
