Julietta the Carpenter can build almost anything using wood, metal or fabric. Her skills are put to the test when she runs afoul of her corrupt King. This new fairy tale introduces a resourceful heroine to the boys and girls of today.
The New Crown is Sandberg's newest children's book and this one is also a winner! Only twenty-eight pages, The New Crown is beautifully illustrated and easy to read. Some of the words are a big harder than his previous book, Candy and the Cankersaur, but with the help of an adult, little ones should have no problem following along.
Julietta is a strong character who I instantly fell in love with. She can work and make something out of almost anything and her comradie with the villagers anger the king. He's evil, she's good and I don't want to spoil it for you, but it is really a stellar read with a great moral story. Highly recommend!
