Tall Tales From The Other Fairy Valley


Linda M. Deane

"Someone is messing with the magic of Other Fairy Valley. Residents are flying backwards, crash-landing and losing their powers of invisibility. Not good! And what’s up with the Make-Be tree? It’s down to Fairy Nuff, a no-nonsense, shak-shak wielding protector, to figure out what’s going on. But it’ll take magic from her fellow Valley dwellers and a pair of unsuspecting young humans — not to mention a killer game of air marbles — to help set the human and fairy worlds straight again. The first story in this series of modern Barbadian folktales for children takes us to a place far removed from the real Fairy Valley in Barbados — or is it? Populated with funny, super-smart and mysterious characters drawn from African, Caribbean and European folklore, each Tall Tale asks a simple universal and timeless question: What are YOU doing to make YOUR world a better place?"
