Mabel, like many young ones, has difficulty falling asleep and many excuses for delaying her nightly visit to the Land of Nod. So her mom tells her the story of the Queen of Fae who won’t visit her until she closes her eyes.
In their delightful new picture book, Henry, Joshua and Harrison Herz spins allusions to Shakespeare into the story which is whimsical and beautiful.
The illustrations by Lisa Woods are glorious. My very favorite is the one of “Old beetle working deep in an enchanted wood.”
Mabel and the Queen of Dreams will delight both parents and children.
