The Exalted Gate Review


Ten traditional fairy tales with just a touch of the modern in them, inspired by the beautiful and inventive paintings of Annie Ovenden. Follow the adventures of the actress Judith who hates shoes and her magical, unwanted boots; listen to the wise dog Kai in ancient Japan; find out if Lonia will ever get married and what made Densus turn blue; witness a dragon?s last hours; discover what made Alice?s granddaughter angry and how Ned saved his home. Can the elf Opikle Dinn save Rebecca?s life? What can a ghost do to save Dinhama?s village in ancient India? What happened when Keith learned his dog could talk?

My Review

First I want to say I fell in love with this cover when I saw it! The book is a little over sized with nice heavy pages that won't crinkle or tear easily. This is important when an 8 year old is reading the story. There are 10 stories in the book and each one is unique and has it's own individual message. Some are just plain cute and funny and others are a little bittersweet. I enjoyed reading these as bedtime stories with my two boys. The illustrations are also really beautiful in this book. i think everyone of any age would enjoy these stories!

  5. I love books that aren't easily torn by kids. This sounds like something that I might like. 10 different stories so we won't have to read in one sitting. Awesome!
