an audience with her harp and ecognizes family in her companion ThomasAbove all the folklore that this presents is fun and fantastic I enjoyed the author s notes about the legends behind the tales and how she was able to put her own twist on each oneAt this point nothing would make me happier than to see this book end up being considered for the Newbery It s worthy of the debate and discussion so than some of the other titles I ve encountered this year I like the obvious Celtic Folktale esearch Perfect for the young or young at heart who hold within them the love for a good story Shelley Moore Thomas The Seven Tales of Trinket is the tale of a journey and the makings of a story lass After the sad death of her mother Trinket is set on striking out to find her father who disappeared from their lives years previously Her father James the Bard was known throughout the land as a handsome and talented bard who played the harp splendidly and had hundreds of tales for the telling to earn himself a living Trinket knows no.

The Journey And Adventurejourney and adventure being ecounted to me at a later time by someone who d experienced it ather than me feeling as if I were experiencing things at Trinket s side For me this esulted in a somewhat disjointed feeling as I feel like this book was attempting to marry those two experiences and fell short in doing soPerfectly enjoyable and an incredibly uick ead I ealize it s nearly 400 pages but considering the amount of white space and the fact that this is an oddly shaped book which I love it can be ead in a couple of hours but I didn t completel.

Y fall for Trinket s tale I would certainly keep this book in mind to ecommend to the ight child and if I don t feel it was amazing I did feel my time was well spent consuming itOriginal eview posted at Bunbury amazing I did feel my time was well spent consuming itOriginal eview posted at Bunbury the Stacks I would have given this one five stars if it hadn t been for the oh so predictable #ending I do love a good cliche and happy ending but this one was just a little too much The Seven #I
Do Love A Goodlove a good and happy ending but this one was just a little too much The Seven of Trinket is a truly magical story of seven fairy tales told through the eyes of young Trinket as she searches for her father My daughter loved Trinket and I got a kick out of Thomas the Pig Boy The tales were wonderfully woven together and eally made me look forward to eading to my daughter at bedtime She loved this book so much I m pretty sure she ll end up e eading it to herself very soon This lyrical elegant and uniue story provided a wonderful journey over hills and along sea coasts encountering fortune tellers ghosts pookahs faeries and even a wonderfully kind gravedigger There were beautifully loyal friends and fallible heroes and I enjoyed every bit of the tale Ultimately the threaded folklore wove a colorful backdrop to the core theme of growing up and forgiveness It was a lovely adventure Definitely a uniue and original book that combines old world storytelling with a modern heroine s gumption I m a big fan of the sly humor and the sparse yet elegant prose I a The most interesting character was surely the father Anyone who can tell a good story is usually a person to be credited Fairies are tricky and I m glad they were successfully evaded There s a lot of things to be emembered in this book that might be useful if you un into some of the situations It might be good to keep as a handbook or somewhere close like on your mantle if you ve got one Good job I ve got a copy I ve finally just ecollected the pages of this book that were thrown around the woods behind my house I m tired of my brothers ipping up my books To that end I m glad to finally say a few words on it This has been in my TBR pile for too long and I don t know why it took me so long to get to it but I adored it A eally wonderful middle grade ead. E fights a wolf to the death to protect the baby prince left in his charge All fine material for six tales but it is the seventh tale in which Trinket learns her father's true fate that changes her life forever The Seven Tales of Trinket is a Kirkus Reviews Best Children's Book of 20.
