"My favorite Fairy Tale is Cinderella. I like to read all different versions of this fairy tale."
"The book I am most looking forward to reading in the new year is whatever the next book that my favorite author, Nora Roberts will write. She writes a lot, but the next one to come out is Obsession in Death, written under the pseudonym J.D. Robb."

Miss Deborah would like to recommend these fairy tales!
Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters by John Steptoe
Recommended for ages 6 to 10
The king has called for all the most beautiful and worthy daughters in the land to appear before him and he will choose a wife from among them. Mufaro had two beautiful daughters, Manyara and Nyasha. Manyara was proud and rude. Nyasha was as kind as she was beautiful. Manyara went ahead of the others in order to be the first to appear before the king. On the way she shows her true nature. Nyasha shows her kindness on the way to the king’s city and when they arrive Nyasha is chosen by the king. I like this story because it is similar to Cinderella, which is one of my favorite fairy tales. This story is set in Africa and the illustrations are beautiful.
The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs by Jon Scieszka
Recommended for ages 6 to 12
This is the story of the Three Little Pigs written from the wolf’s point of view. Here the wolf tells us he was just going to the pigs’ houses to borrow a cup of sugar to make his granny a birthday cake. He had a terrible cold and when he sneezed, the houses just fell down. What was he to do? I think it is fun to look at a familiar story in a different way. This is very funny.
