for Come to the Fairies' Ball by Jane Yolen and Gary A. Lippincott
A whimsical rhyming tale set in a fairy world. The king has set forth an invitation to the fairies: come to the ball! And everyone is in a delightful tizzy, searching for their top hats, their boots, and their crowns-and where-oh-where are those spider-web gowns? The fairies finally arrive, towed by swans, rowed by fish. One group of five got there fast on a wish. But one fairy is left behind, her only dress in tatters. What should she do? The resident ants offer her some wise words. In this rhyming picture book, with a slight nod to the tale of Cinderella, celebrated author Jane Yolen and award-winning illustrator Gary Lippincott create a magical fairy kingdom that will charm all who enter.
