Shimmer: A Faerie’s Tragic Tale by Claudette Melanson

In the Great Tradition of Hans Christian Andersen

Short is always better when it comes to children’s stories and they come into their own when all is story and character and to the point. (Children – adults should learn from them – have no patience for writerly self-indulgence.) Claudette Melanson’s “Shimmer” is in the great tradition of Hans Christian Andersen. A tale of star-crossed lovers it is also Shakespeare for children.
