#BookReview: The River Fairy's Wish: A Lyrical Fairy Tale by @CyrenaShows

Title: The River Fairy's Wish
Author: Cyrena Shows

Published: July 8, 2019
Publisher: Dragonfly Hill Books, LLC
Format: Kindle Edition, 31pages
Synopsis: A Magical Wish...
If you were a fairy who could make a big wish, what would your wish be?
The River Fairy lives in an enchanting crystal house by the lazy Dream River.

What more could she possibly want? With the help of a dazzling, magical crown, the fairy's most desired wish comes true! Can you guess what her wish might be?

This lyrical story reveals the River Fairy's wish through song accompanied by colorful, whimsical artwork. Much of the tale follows the tune of the old folk song "Green Grass Grows All Around," and children will love the singsong quality of the story.

"And in that house
There was a fairy
The prettiest river fairy
That you rarely did see.
And the fairy in the house
And the house made of crystals
In a sleepy fairy town,
And the Dream River 
flowed all around, 
all around,
The Dream River 
flowed all around."
Young children will delight in both the auditory and visual beauty of this magical fairy tale.
Ages 2-8.
