Reminiscent of the famous fabulist Aesop, Nadine Robert tells a classic story of patience and smarts versus greed. We all know how it ends. So much credit needs to be given to Sang Miao. Her artwork makes this book an instant classic. It's so good!

Child logic and base ferality attempt to work together in this beautifully bleak fable. A group of fairies are forced to leave their previous 'home' and survive the wilderness. If you are looking for a sweet moral ribbon to tie around this tale, you wont find it. It is lost; buried in the woods amongst the maggots.
