For the next 6 weeks I will posting ideas for Stocking Stuffers. Some are books I've reviewed on GivingNSharing. Some will be books I reviewed on CCB (Classic Children's Books). Some will be products that I find helpful with chronic pain and some will be neat little gadgets and some will be little projects that I am working on for Christmas Gifts... let's start with Week 1:
The Cats of Tanglewood Forest
by Charles de Lint
About the book:
Lillian Kindred spends her days exploring the Tanglewood Forest, a magical, rolling wilderness that she imagines to be full of fairies. The trouble is, Lillian has never seen a wisp of magic in her hillsuntil the day the cats of the forest save her life by transforming her into a kitten. Now Lillian must set out on a perilous adventure that will lead her through untamed lands of fabled creaturesfrom Old Mother Possum to the fearsome Bear Peopleto find a way to make things right.
In this whimsical, original folktale written and illustrated throughout in vibrant full color by two celebrated masters of modern fantasy, a young girl's journey becomes an enchanting coming-of-age story about magic, friendship, and the courage to shape one's own destiny.
This would be perfect for readalouds and independent readers—it has a classic, timeless feel to it. And check out some of Charles's exquisite artwork on this Pinterest board!
Disclaimer: I was originally offered a copy of the book to read and review on CCB. This review is being moved to GivingNSharing and reposted for my readers here. I was not required to post a positive review and no $ exchanged hands. Thanks for reading GivingNSharing!
