Reviews of a lovely new fairy tale for children.

Lavender cover final

I’m very proud to share these reviews of a book that I edited: “Lavender Blue & the Faeries of Galtee Wood.” Author Steve Richardson poured his love into this story, and worked very hard to bring the draft he first showed me, up to a storytelling level that would earn him reviews like these. His choice of Larry MacDougall to illustrate his story makes it a prize for anyone who loves fairy tales.

Kirkus Reviews is especially pleased, calling the story an “impressive debut,” and adding, “…the paranormal elements are engaging, as are the book’s reassuring, simple morals of loyalty and doing anything for your friends. ” You can read the full review on Kirkus here. has also posted a 4 star review which you can read here. IndieReader’s reviewer agrees that older readers will be captivated by the story.

So enjoy the reviews, and if you know a reader of any age that loves fairy stories, this one would make a beautiful gift!
