9780142500606: Fanny's Dream (Picture Puffins)

In this inventive take on the traditional Cinderella tale, Fanny Agnes is a sturdy farm girl with a big dream. Someday, she believes, she will marry a prince. When the town mayor announces he is throwing a grand ball, Fanny is convinced her time has come. She puts on her best calico dress and goes out to the garden so that she'll be ready when her fairy godmother arrives. As the seconds tick by, Fanny waits and waits. Finally, she hears a voice. It isn't her fairy godmother-but it is someone who will change her life forever.

From Booklist:

Ages 6^-9. A truly wonderful mix of storytelling and art from a husband-wife team with a fine sense of humor. Having a familiar fairy tale at its heart, this homespun yarn tells the whimsical story of a small-town girl who has big dreams. Fanny Agnes is convinced that if Cinderella could go to the ball and meet a handsome prince "once upon a time, it could happen again. After all, what were fairy godmothers for?" But when farmer Heber Jensen shows up instead of a fairy godmother, Fanny takes it in stride. After an hour of serious thought ("even with all that moonlight" ), she gives up her dreams and accepts his marriage proposal. It's a total surprise when, years later, the fairy godmother, all glittery in pink and blue and yellow, finally shows up to take Fanny away. The story may be too subtle for the usual picture-book audience, which must be able to appreciate the wit as well as the parody. But Fanny Agnes is a delight: a feminist with a wry sense of humor, she balances her dreams with common sense and a loving heart. What's more, there's plenty for youngsters to enjoy in the robust, bucolic pictures, which seem almost to jump off the page. Rich, glowing colors and a plethora of detail--from pictures on walls to animal shapes in the clouds and a spunky black cat to search out on each spread--give the story enough charm and energy to make it a favorite. Stephanie Zvirin
