Mabel and the Queen of Dreams, Hardback Book

Mabel and the Queen of Dreams Hardback

Illustrated by Lisa Woods


Little Mabel is an expert at not going to sleep. She knows all the best bedtime-avoiding excuses. "I'm thirsty." "I need to use the bathroom." "Will you tell me a story?" Luckily, Mom's quiver of bedtime tales includes the story of the Fae Queen, who paints children's dreams and can only visit when their eyes are closed.

Inspired by Mercutio's soliloquy in Romeo & Juliet, in which he details how the tiny fairy queen influences people's dreams as she passes by in her flying chariot, the soothing story evokes images of an ant in a worn gray coat and a hazelnut-shell chariot with a roof of grasshopper wings.

Told in lyrical language that adults will also appreciate, the story helps parents get their kids to sleep.

For ages 0-6.
