Kindergarten-Grade 3–After listening to her father read a story with a fairy-tale ending, Claire drifts off to sleep, wondering what would make someone happy forever. In her dreams, her stuffed unicorn comes to life and the two of them travel through the world of make-believe to find the answer to her question. The first creature she talks to is the Library Fairy, who requires only a good book and some peace and quiet to be happy. They also encounter a princess, a frog prince, a fairy godmother, and a wishing well. Each of the fanciful beings answers the little girls polite inquiries in a different way, and she realizes, Maybe its one of those questions that doesnt really have just one answer. When Claire wakes up the next morning, she tells her father about her philosophical findings. He praises her sensible conclusions and makes his little princess happy with a big pancake breakfast. This imaginative tale is illustrated with lush, richly hued watercolors. Each picture is filled with romantic details that mirror the whimsical flavor of the story. This pleasant, if somewhat long-winded, journey to the land of imagination will delight fairy-tale fans, who will identify with its inquisitive heroine.–Linda L. Walkins, Mount Saint Joseph Academy, Brighton, MA
