I realized you're the author and a signed book is a wonderful thing.
Somehow here and there a scent of haiku japanese poetry.. and the drawings are very nice indeed.
May you always be inspired
I read it with my son trying to guess which fairy tale for each poem. Sometimes difficult..
We recall stories hidden in the depths of memory, and It was a beautiful moment in family.
In the Snow White Tale, Laura Dennis recalls the kindness of a simple man who saves the princess, and I liked that, for without this simple gesture there would be no tale.
mirror speaks , apple of red, good hearted man, protect innocent girl
I also liked when,here at home,we disagree on which is the tale indicated for a poem and this discovery was a good time.Like in this beautiful poem (The Steadfast Tin Soldier)
little heart, found in the ashes, beside, a fragil rosette
A very nice moment which I thank to Laura Dennis kindness. And the drawings are beautiful
CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:
I have already read this book, as it is a small book. At first, I didn't undersand that for each title there were two different poems, but after reading the two first ones I finally realized that each poem relates to a different fairy tale.
I found it interesting that many of the poems are inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales ("The Empreror's New Clothes", "The Princess and the Pea", "The Little Mermaid", "The Ugly Duckling", "The Little Match Girl", "The Steadfast Tin Soldier", "Thumbelina", "The Snow Queen") which, of course, are not traditional folk tales but became part of our culture by the power of the message they tell.
The only poems I could not relate to the respective fairy tale were "The Frog Prince", "The Snow Queen", "The Steadfast Tin Soldier", "The Three Billy Goats Gruff" (I still don't know which fairy tale is this one, maybe because I don't recognize the equivalent title in Portuguese) and "The Twelve Dancing Princesses" (I also don't know this fairy tale as maybe it is an anglo-saxonian tale which is not very known in latin languages)...
Thank you very much lauraloo29 for sending this book on a journey around the world. And thank you once again joaquimponte for letting me read this book!
