Reviewer Rating:


Well known author Jane Yolen has teamed up with fellow author Rebecca Kai Dotlich and illustrator Matt Mahurin to create this unique poetry book for children.  The poems are all based on well-known fairy tales but they have a twist.  Each poem is written from the viewpoint of a fairytale character.  Some strange and funny perspectives emerge.  Cinderella wishes she had worn more sensible shoes.  The pea from "The Princess and the Pea" tells us that the princess snores.  Poems about 15 different fairy tales are included.

Whether you like children’s poetry or fairy tales you’ll enjoy and be intrigued by Grumbles from the Forest: Fairy-Tale Voices with a Twist.  This book is perfect for elementary school children.
