The fable ends with a surprise twist which will delight readers young and old.  While written for children, this fairy tale is sophisticated enough to appeal to adults as well. Queens, warlords, faeries, elves, unicorns, handmaidens, scary henchmen and one small mortal girl child in an enchanted forest.  This fable offers many subtle lessons.

Stanley, a young dragon, has run away from home.  He feels that he is a failure and as dragons go, he probably is.  He’s kind, soft spoken, a good friend and can’t for the life of him, breathe FIRE!  One day Stanley and his best friend and sidekick, a lady bug named Persnickety land in the fabled forest to be discovered by Cheets, the effervescent elf.  Emma is the only earthling and lives on a farm and plays in the nearby forest with her magical friends.  The loveable villain is a raven named City Slick, the Third.  Thomas, the pedantic sea turtle, expresses himself in colorful sea faring lingo.  These are just a few of Stanley’s new friends.

One dark night Slick lures Stanley away from the forest and sells him to the circus. The owner of the circus, Freckles the Clown, has left Stanley chained, alone in a tent, ‘where he will remain until he breathes fire!’ The Queen of the Faeries gives Donald and Emma a quest; to go and find Stanley and rescue him. While this is an adventure story full of laughter, it teaches children that no matter what, it is never a good idea to run away.   

Bertie, the bookworm is the fabled forest’s elder and teacher.  Every week he has a spelling and reading circle where everyone is welcomed.  Slam and his gang of bully boys are forever teasing, disrupting, and bullying Bertie and the group of faeries and woodland creatures.  Pansy, the pixie is a new character in this third of the Fabled Forest series.  She is a defender of reading, truth, and Bertie.  Cheets, our beloved elf from past books gets in with the wrong crowd and his friends are worried that he will become the newest member of the Bully Boys.  Best friends with Cheets, Pansy is determined to save her friend. The story teaches gentle lessons about literacy, bullying and ageism.
