Retelling of Fairy Tales

I just finished reading East by Edith Pattou. It is a retelling of the Norwegian fairy tale, East of the Sun, West of the Moon which is similar to Beauty and the Beast. Rose is the last daughter of a very large family. They are very poor and barely have enough food for everyone. Since she was a very young child, Rose has been being watched by a white bear. One evening the bear approaches her father to say that if Rose goes with him, the family will be rich. The adventure begins with Roses decision. An excellent retelling of a classic fairy tale.

Remember to ask about Merlin and Arthur when you return to school.

Comment and let me know what you are reading. Right now I am reading How to Catch a Bogle by Catherine Jinks, Amulet Keepers by Michael Northrop and a few more I can’t find right now. Happy reading and don’t forget to log your reads.
