Necklace of Raindrops

by Joan Aiken
Overall: 3 out of 5 stars

Category: Folk Tale

Personal Evaluation: Joan Aiken’s name caught my eye since I really enjoyed her Wolves series when I was younger, so I had to give this a shot. Also a librarian I really respect recommended it, but overall I thought it was just okay.

What might interest children: The stories are entertaining and good for kids who have long memorized the classic fairy tales as these ones are definitely original (even a little too off-the-wall for my taste) but you can still identify the elements of a classic fairy tale in them.
