Finds tongues in trees, books in running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in everything.
— William Shakespeare
Corey Rosen Schwartz has written a delightful new book combining fairy tales and math, Twinderella: A Fractioned Fairy Tale with adorable pictures by Deborah Marcero (G. P. Putnam’s Sons, an imprint of Penguin Random House LLC, 2017). I love that the rhyming text allows Cinderella to find her path, halving her trouble and freeing her twin, Tinderella, to love math but still have her happily ever after. I won’t spoil it here.
Notes: Always a challenge to keep my micro reviews super short, because the books are wonderful, and it’s tempting to wax poetic about them. The author also has a ninja fairy tale series that I love, the Three Ninja Pigs and Ninja Red Riding Hood. Such fun!
