This book could be used in comparison to other fairy tale books because it is so different from the original. ( )

This fantasy book talks about a farm girl who wanted to marry a prince ends up marrying a farm boy. Even though a godmother agrees to let her marry a prince, the girl decides to stay with her farm husband. I don't like this book, but maybe it is true that sometimes we should give up unrealistic dreams. However, I will not use it in my future class. ( )

This is a good book for young girls to realize that they are perfect the way they are and someone will love them just for that! Girls do not have to conform to the way society is putting them in a box. This clearly is fantasy because it includes a fairy godmother (magic), as well as it is believable. It's very realistic that a farmer girl would fall in love with a farmer boy. Also, little girls can relate to it because they want many of the same things the lady in this story wants. However, realistically that is not what happens.

I really enjoyed the book "Fanny's Dream" by Buehner, Caralyn. The illustrations of Fanny working on the farm in earth color tones reinforced the idea of Fanny being a "Salt of the Earth" type. This also helps to support Fanny's final decision to stay with her husband instead of living in the castle. I thought the end was clever and different, and enjoyed the fact that she made the decision to stay where she was felt she belonged. I like the fact that both her husband and Fanny are not your typical fairytale characters which also foreshadowed that the ending may be different than expected. I though the main idea of this was appreciating what you have and that real life can often be better than fairytale if we allow it to be. ( )

The book Fanny's dream by Caralyn Buehner is a wonderful modern fantasy that shows that dreams do come true, although not always as expected. The illustrations are very detailed and are perfectly paired with the entertaining story line. ( )
