I'm about halfway through this book and so far I am really enjoying it. The Heart of Glass is about some princesses and princes in the Five Kingdoms but it's not a fairytale as it sounds. It has a twist. Prince Marcus goes on an adventure with an orphan called Gracie Gillypot who is his best friend, to the Unreliable Forest where a tree grabs Gracie and pulls her into a tunnel........
The Fables of Aesop is a very ancient collection of short tales. Each one teaches you a famous life lesson, like "slow and steady wins the race" and "honesty is the best policy". I reckon some of the tales are a bit hard to understand, but some are really good.
Mum's been reading this to my sisters and I at bedtime. The writing is soooooo old fashioned and weird, but it is so funny we crack up laughing every now and then.
It has lots of songs in it, and even though Mum doesn't know the tune she sings them to us anyway!
