Five Favorite Fairy Tale-ish Books

the flying witch little moose that's what leprechauns do

1. The Flying Witch by Jane Yolen – an original tale based on the Baba Yaga legends. I especially liked the happy ending.

2. The Little Moose Who Couldn’t Go To Sleep by Willy Claflin – a great read-aloud moose tale told by a moose

3. That’s What Leprechaun’s Do by Eve Bunting – not laugh-out loud funny, but entertaining. Leprechauns can certainly be mischievous.

Wickedly Magical Wizard of oz

4. Wickedly Magical by Deborah Blake – a new take on the Baba Yaga legend. Not a perfect book, but a good opening to a series.

5. The Wizard of Oz by Frank L. Baum – it’s a classic, and I was surprised by how much it differed from the movies.
