Fairy Ring, The: Or Elsie And Frances...
Fairy Ring, The: Or Elsie And Frances Fool The World (2012)

About book: There aren't that many true stories about how an 11-year-old and 16-year-old girls cleverly get the best of all of established civilization, but this is one of them. And the best part about it is that it comes with truly beautiful photographs that are integral to the story. I'm not sure if the entire book would engage a young reader. The beginning definitely draws you in with the skill of all the best of the child-out-of-their-elements beginning -- think Mary Lennox at the opening of A Secret Garden or Anne Shirley newly arrived in Avonlea. Some of the later chapters, which track the fall-out of the most interesting parts of the story, might be less engaging for the young reader. Still, I think the narrative, even when relating historic detail, is most interested in the incandescence of young pre-adolescent and adolescent girls' imaginative lives, and I think that will appeal to a certain set of readers who like fairies and old photographs. I liked this book.It was a really good book because it was astonishingly true. Yet I do not give it 5 stars since it is not a deep book with much internal flair and things you have to think about, for example, the author didn't describe how Frances and Elsie's souls felt when Mr. Hodson came over. Mr. Hodson was a seer and came to the girls to see the fairies to take pictures. But I was left wondering if Mr. Hodson's documents about the fairies upset the children, because the girls didn't want the fairies to come out in the news. It was their secret.It is about two girls who see real fairies, but take fake photos because they didn't want to take the pictures and because they were hard to see.They fool a lot of people.They go through news reporting ordeals.The ending is very enchanting but I won't tell it because I don't want to spoil the book. Maybe you might want to put this book on your "to read" list.
