    1. Amanda (age 9) read 2 pages of King Oberon's Forest to me almost every night. I helped her with pronunciation and explained new words to her. The story is entertaining for children and adults. Amanda enjoyed the illustrations and made a rule that I wasn't allowed to peek until after she read that page. It's a classic fairy tale about woodland creatures that think and behave like people.

    2. I was looking for a Hilda VanStockum book to read and ran across this fun fairytale.

    5. This is the only fantasy book written by Hilda van Stockum. It is about animals in the forest, good and bad. Amusing characters.
