|Of Moonbeams and Fairies by Rebecka Vigus|
Isn’t this cover delicious? This is a fairytale book by award winning author Rebecka Vigus. This book was love at first sight for me, and I stalked Rebecka via social media to ask her a couple questions for a Glitterview. She was kind enough to
with agree to play.
Welcome, Rebecka! May the odds be ever in your favor! Let the glittery inquisition commence!
Magical stuff delights me. As a child I read the original Grimm’s Fairy Tales and found them rather grim. Does your book turn any mermaids to foam or in any way abuse mythical creatures like the Brother’s Grimm does? No mermaids, sorry. Nothing on the Brothers Grimm style.
What age group would you say this book is ideal for? The book is a good read for ages 8 and up. It would have to be read to younger children.
I ordered a copy of this as a gift for my niece for Christmas (if you’re reading this Emmy, I mean my other niece—and if my other niece is reading this, it’s for a secret niece you two don’t know about). Rebecka, would you consider crossed fingers to be suitable protection against lying? (Because I may have gotten some of my brothers-in-law into serious trouble with this one.) There is no reason it couldn't be. No, crossing your fingers won't save you from a lie. You will eventually be found out.
Since you wrote a book about fairies, I’m going to assume that you’re somewhat of an expert, and as I’ve worried about this since I was a kid—what happens to fairies in the winter? Do they go south for the season? Fairies do not migrate. It is my understanding they do remain mostly indoors....in their tree homes during winter. They have suffered through many a gale coming off the North Sea (or in my case, off the Great Lakes).
Now for a glimpse into the magic inside those beautiful covers...Let the moon beams take you where your imagination lives, is the best one line description for this anthology of poems and short stories. In it you will meet Twitter the fairy as well as Chauncey O’Shay the leprechaun. Visit the land where unicorns roam and meet Princess Violet. There are poems about gypsies, magic, fairies, fireflies, and gnomes. You can find out about the inhabitants of a tree and the life in the blades of grass in your backyard. Magic is everywhere.
