New Book: Fairy Tale Frankie and the Tricky Witch by Greg Gormley and Steven Lenton

Looking for a not scary, lighthearted fairy tale book for Halloween for the youngest people in your life? Then check out Fairy Tale Frankie and the Tricky Witch by Greg Gormley (Author) and Steven Lenton (Illustrator).

The fairy tale connection is generic characters from fairy tales--princess, king, knight, etc.--not specific fairy tales. Now I am trying to think if there are any Halloween related books with specific fairy tale characters in them. None are coming to mind.

Anyway, this one will amuse the toddler set and is definitely not scary with lots of purple and pink to spare. I like that Frankie takes charge in the crisis and saves the day. And this doesn't have to be for Halloween, but it is a great book for the holiday, too.

As always, clicking on an image will open a larger image of it to view and read the text.

  1. A great Halloween/fairy tale book is "Cinderella Skeleton" by Robert D. San Souci.
