The Fairy’s Mistake is a great book by Gail Carson Levine. I love her books because she makes me laugh and enchants every story she retells. This book is a retelling of an old fairytale that I once read. Funny, when I read it, I thought it was just like Toads and Diamonds, another of her books. It was hilarious, and I couldn’t put it down until I finished it. I just finished re-reading it for the tenth time yesterday, and I got it on Friday! I just love this book. For those who are not familiar with the tale, here it is: A young girl, named Rosella goes out to the well. A fairy disguises herself as an old lady. Rosella gives water to the lady. She is rewarded by the gift that whenever she speaks, jewels come out of her mouth. Her sister Myrtle tries, but the fairy turns herself into a knight. Myrtle doesn’t give water to the fairy and says something mean. The fairy makes bugs, and reptiles come out of her mouth. Soon a greedy prince takes Rosella away and Myrtle is terrorizing the kingdom with the bugs. In the end the fairy has had it. She fixes everything, and life goes on happily. That is the story (not the original of course). Tomorrow I will write about The Princess Test a retelling of the Princess and the Pea. Until tomorrow….
