In this retelling of the fairy tale Sleeping Beauty, Princess Sonora, who is ten times smarter than anyone else, vows to choose for herself the best time to be pricked by the spindle.
In this humorous retelling of a Perrault tale, a lonely young farm lad uses his unusual inventive ability to pass a nearly impossible test and win the hand of the neighboring princess.
 In this humorous retelling of Andrew Lang's "Puddocky," a young maiden who has been transformed into a toad by a jealous fairy relies on her newly honed magical abilities to charm a prince into marriage.
Forgive Me, I Meant To Do It: False Apology Poems
Inspired by William Carlos William's famous poem, "This Is Just to Say," a collection of ironic apology poems imagines how tricksters really feel about the mischief they make.
Prilla, the unusual new fairy in Neverland, finds her mettle, Mother Dove's wisdom, and Tinker Bell's courage tested by many trials, including a hurricane, a selfish fairy, and Captain Hook.
