I was away for a few days and came home to a pile of mail and a ton of e-mails. Anyways, this little book has arrived safe and sound. I will read it and take it to the Bookcrossing meeting at the Joshua Tree Cafe this Saturday.
Thank you, lauraloo :)

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Cute little book of poetry by our fellow bookcrosser lauraloo. I liked the fairy tale theme very much. The poems were nice, but I found that they all followed the same 'formula' a bit too much. I liked 'Astray' meshing together the Six Swan Brothers and Hanzel and Gretel.
Thank you for sharing, lauraloo. I am releasing this book today at the Joshua Tree Cafe to share with some of our local Calgary bookcrossers.

Picked up from Fracula from calgary book crossing get together.

A very cute little set poems, each combining two fairy tales. It was neat picking out which was which, and seeing how two stories that I would never pair up could be connected. There was only one story in the poems that I need not recognize - I will need to look it up in the future~

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

released to the march YA meeting.

march 3/11:
I read this little gem at lunch today tucked nicely in between two other YA novels based around fairy tales: Birdwing which takes from the seven swans and the goose girl and A curse as dark as gold which seems to be around rumplstiltskin. I really enjoyed seeing these poems capture the heart of each tale but still have enough connecting them together.

To the finder:
Calgary has an active group of BookCrossers that meet to swap books and discuss book crossing every second Saturday of the month at 11am at the Joshua Tree Cafe on Edmonton Trail. We always love to meet new crossers, so please join us any time you like!

To be read - picked up at March Book Crossing meeting

Journal Entry 17 by Ashtoash at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Saturday, May 11, 2019
Interesting poetic take on fairy tales. I wish the book had more strong female characters, but I guess there aren't that many female fairy tales characters famous for their heroism.
This book was brought in to the May 2019 Book Crossing meeting in Calgary.

Journal Entry 19 by claws-12 at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Saturday, June 01, 2019
Cute quick read, with short poems evoking favorite fairy tales from childhood.
Should I be worried about how many I could still recognize? :)
