These are cute little books. There are however becoming less and less relevant and with thinner story-lines. This book was about a little flower fairy that had the unfortunate mischance to be born a nettle flower. There could have been so much more but no, the crux of the story was reveled in the last few pages and the story was over.
This was another book that my (now 6 year old) daughter and I read together as a bedtime book. We both decided it was not what we were expecting, but we both enjoyed it. I think it is probably targeted at children who are closer to the 8 year old range.

This is a (very slow) classical story about fathers and daughters. In this story, Snow White tries to cure her returned father of the amnesietic curse Maladora cast on him.
