Rink is the weird kid at school who sits in the back of the class and never says a word. He makes shoes out of molted snakeskin. And when the moon's full, flowers grow from his head. But somehow, Rink winds up with the prettiest girl at school, gets married, and lives happily ever after. Probably somewhere in Marin County. Ages: 5 – 9 Years The Boy Who Grew Flowers by Jen Wojtowicz and Steve Adams ($8)
The Blue Fairy Book Lang, Andrew. London, Longmans Green & Co, 1903. First Edition. First in a series of twelve Fairy books, published between 1889 and 1910. Lang grew up reading classic fairy tales during his childhood in the rural Scottish Borders and he believed that the next generation of children should not be subjected to the dreamy, gentle, flower-orientated fairy tales that were popular at the time.
