About the Author:

Tanya Robyn Batt, currently living in New Zealand, is one of the world's few professional faeries. Using her vast costume wardrobe, Faery Tanya travels all over the world performing at festivals, schools, and libraries. Tanya has also written and compiled the recently released A Child's Book of Faeries (2002) selected as The Sunday Times Book of the Month in September 2002 and The Fabrics of Fairytale (2000) Nicoletta Ceccoli was born and still lives in The Republic of San Marino with her two pet turtle doves. Featured several times at the Bologna Children's Book Festival, she won the prestigious Andersen prize for the best Italian children's book illustrator in 2000. She has also illustrated the popular Barefoot title An Island in the Sun (2002).

From Booklist:

K-Gr. 3. In this beautifully illustrated version of a familiar story, a woodcutter is granted one wish after he saves a faerie's life. The problem is that he doesn't know what to wish for. His wife wants him to ask for the child they have wanted for many years; his blind mother begs him to give her back her sight; his practical father tells him to wish for gold. The confused woodcutter heads to his beloved forest to think. He returns triumphantly with a single wish that makes everyone happy: "I wish that my mother could see our baby lying here in a cradle of gold." This enchanting tale is sure to spark lively discussion, and it will be a good springboard for creative-writing assignments, even among children older than the target audience. Ceccoli's luminous pictures are expertly rendered in acrylic and oil pastels. Their unusual perspectives, elements of fantasy, and ethereal quality complement the story's magical theme. Compare this with other wish-fulfillment tales, or have kids write their own story with themselves in the woodcutter's role. Lauren Peterson
