New review of First Frost for Fairy Tale Fortnight!
If you love fairy tales as much as I do, when you finish reading FIRST FROST, you’re going to be a little bit devastated. This is the same sense of ugly-weeping that comes from realizing you will never have a library as beautiful as the one Beast gives Beauty. It’s tangible sadness. Why? The book’s main character, Bianca, works in her mother’s Museum of Magical and Rare Artifacts…which is a fancy way of saying fairy tale museum. How amazing would it be to have a fairy tale museum in town? And themed rooms such as the Princess Room, where weekly story times for children take place? Going to the Narnia exhibit a few years ago was incredible, even though it wasn’t “real,” and I know I’d have the same feeling in a fairy tale museum. It would be even cooler if, like in FIRST FROST, the artifacts in the museum were real. From a red cape to a brick from a Little Pig’s house to a sample of Rapunzel’s hair, there are many dangerous items hiding in plain sight.
