Too Many Fairies: A Celtic Tale by Margaret Read MacDonald (Author), Susan Mitchell (Illustrator) was a bargain book back in June and it is one of Amazon's Deals of the Day today only for $1.99. This ebook only works on Kindle Fires, iPads, etc. but more people have those since Christmas so I thought I would share again. The hardcover edition is $11.69, so the digital is an economical way to own the book.
Besides, I love this fairy tale and most kids do, too, when they hear it.
There was once an old woman who hated chores. "Work! Work! Work! How I hate it! Hate it! Hate it!" One day some fairies show up. They . . . clankety-clankety-clankety — clean all the dishes. Swishety-swishety-swishety —sweep the house. Flumpety-flumpety-flumpety — shake out the bedclothes. Clickety-clickety-clickety — work on all the knitting. But then there is nothing left to do. So, they tear everything apart and start again! Clankety-clankety-clankety, swishety-swishety-swishety . . . . The fairies are driving the old woman crazy! How will she get them to leave? Lively watercolor illustrations add to this Celtic retelling by master storyteller Margaret Read MacDonald. An author’s note is also included.
