Book Review: The Knot Fairy

The Knot Fairy

by Bobbie Hinman

I don't often review picture books, but I met Bobbie Hinman at a book festival, and when I heard that her book was about fairies, I offered to review it. The Knot Fairy is a sweet and adorable book that tells children, in rhyming couplets, about a fairy that visits them every night to tangle their hair. Children will delight in the slightly subversive message about flaunting one's tangled locks. The illustrations, by Kristi Bridgeman, are lovely and Kristi gives the Knot Fairy real character. The book comes packaged with an audio CD featuring the author reading the story, and a theme song sung to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
