Why I like this book:
I love fairy tales. It is so fun to read one that is a little different, makes it feel new, fresh and unique. Rachael Mortimer gives this classic tale a fun and humorous twist. The illustrator gives the ugly green troll a not so scary almost adorable appearance. The little billy goats are just way too cute!!!! But more than that, children learn that there is always a solution to a problem and that with lots of compassion and thought, they can come to a solution or compromise. ☺

This blog is my diary of works in progress. The only way a writer can improve upon her skill is to practice, practice and practice some more. Here, in this place of quiet peace, I pen to paper my thoughts and creativity. Welcome to my world.
