We have recently finished a book with the boys. I thought I would try something new on here and share some of my favorite books with you. Both books for kids and some for mommy as well. This book is called A Tale of Two Fairies: The Secret of the Spider’s Web and was written by C.S. Ferguson. According to the Facebook page the author may be working on a sequel book in he near future so be sure to check out the book and let them know what you think!
Here is the quote from the Amazon page.
“There is a great panic when the villainous spider Hex and her army somehow penetrate the magical protective barrier and attack the peaceful fairy village Mushroom Circle. Normally, the elite fairy Rangers would drive her away and burn her web. But this time, Hex caught the Rangers by surprise. The village Elders choose young fairies Sam and Max Bantam to travel into the Wild and find her hidden web. Though they haven’t gone through puberty and sprouted wings yet, the brothers accept this charge and embark on this first of many adventures. They meet many creatures along the way, such as a highwaymouse, a world-weary swordsrabbit, and even a legendary wizard said to be as old as the forest itself. But in the Wild, there are no care-free lives filled with precious moments. The Bantam brothers learn that the Wild can be a very dangerous place, with everything from army ants on the warpath to raindrops almost as big as they are. They learn that the Wild is much larger and much older than either of them suspected. Most importantly, they learn that adventures aren’t always fun, and that being a hero isn’t as wonderful as they thought it would be. The Secret of the Spider’s Web is the first volume in the multi-volume A Tale of Two Fairies series by C. S. Ferguson.”
I found that the book was set up brilliantly for bed time stories. The chapters are short stories that progress the larger over-arching story line. Each story has a good lesson to it as well. They help teach real life situations to kids. There are some black and white sketches in the book but this is not a picture book by any means.
Overall this was not a book that they reached for every night but they enjoyed the stories and following the fairy brothers on the grand adventure. We can’t wait to see what trouble the brothers can get into in the next book!
