N. Reece Ho-Sheffield’s collection of children stories, Reece's Vintage Tales, carries inspiring lessons for any reader. The stories feature colorful characters, fascinating scenes, and powerful insights. In the story, “The Prince of Vanity,” a pompous and vain prince is eventually humbled when he realizes his looks and talents alone will not get him the lady of his dreams. Another delightful story is loosely based on the tale, Little Red Riding Hood. “Little Green Riding Hood and the Vegetarian Wolf” veers off from the original story through the addition of some modern touches and a few surprising twists. Each tale has a unique story to tell. Though some are familiar, N. Reece Ho-Sheffield still manages to surprise by applying creativity.
Most of the stories in Reece's Vintage Tales by N. Reece Ho-Sheffield offer hope to anyone who feels that they are not good enough or have been the object of scorn and ridicule. The tales also warn against pride, materialism, and vanity. The characters are captivating in their diversity and differences in points of view. In some stories, characters are human while in others they are animals. The stories are comical and this is accentuated by the deftly created illustrations which add color and depth to the tales. The combination of modern and traditional elements as well as the inclusion of different genres such as science fiction, suspense, and the inspirational genre makes the collection diverse and hence even more engaging. Reece's Vintage Tales by N. Reece Ho-Sheffield is a delightful and heart-warming collection for children and adults alike.
