Midwest Book Review, May 2019, The Legend of the Fairy Stones, Kelly Anne White
9781642791969, $23.95, Library Binding, 52pp, 9781642791952, $11.95, Paperback edition
A unique stand-alone picture book, "The Legend of the Fairy Stones" by Kelly Anne White shares the fictional legend of how real-life fairy stones were formed. Woodland lore has it that the cross-shaped stones came from the solidified tears of forest fairies the day they heard that Jesus died. "The Legend of the Fairy Stones" takes young readers ages 4-10 on an upbeat journey through a land filled with joyful fairies of all varieties before twisting and turning into a world of evils and ill wills combated by a sense of fearlessness found in the spirit of the fairy stones. It's been deemed that fairy stones repel witches, ghosts, goblins, ghouls, and all other types of ghastly fools. With its rhythmic text and classic fairy-tale style, "The Legend of the Fairy Stones" cleverly integrates fantastical folklore in a collage-style montage of amazing artwork from the public domain. These very real stone crosses, officially called Staurolite, form naturally through a geothermal process known as "cruciform penetration twinning". Alongside its elements of fantasy and whimsy, "The Legend of the Fairy Stones" remains grounded in educational content with back matter that focuses sharply on STEAM and Common Core Standards, making it an ideal and recommended addition to both community and elementary school library collections. It should be noted for parents that "The Legend of the Fairy Stones" is also available in a paperback edition (9781642791952, $11.95).
