Adventures of Faerie Folk, Volume 1 is a cute children’s storybook by Paula J. Roscoe. In Annabelle and the Strawberry Faerie, rainy weather damages the crops that Annabelle and her mother planted, and they don’t have money to buy food. Annabelle finds strawberries in the woods, but the Strawberry Faerie forbids her to pick them. Annabelle pleads with her and gets to take only three berries home. On the way, the strawberries begin to change, much to her surprise. Clare cherishes her apple trees and throws a tantrum when a faerie eats her apples, so is punished in Clare and the Apple Tree Faerie. Other faeries tease Meggie Mog because she looks and behaves differently from them. They mock her even more after she accepts an important assignment from their queen in The Rose Faerie. Heini the Holly Tree Faerie dislikes painting berries red and wearing a tattered dress. She wants folks to admire her beauty, but unfortunately her wish comes with a price.

Adventures of Faerie Folks, Volume 1 will delight young readers. Paula J. Roscoe has created four imaginative stories with characters showing acts of kindness, selfishness, and vanity. The stories are fun to read while being educational. Children will learn that teasing is a form of bullying and sharing with others is a good deed. The book does not have many illustrations, but Paula J. Roscoe will entice children with her creative storytelling, which they will find appealing. I recommend this book.
