Reader's Favorite: "Shari Lane's book, The Unfairy Tale, is a story that is sure to delight readers of books like The Princess Bride and The Neverending Story. With whimsical flair, Lane weaves both the fairy tale Amanda is being told with the story of her everyday life. Anyone who has ever had to cope with the constant interruptions that occur while reading to children are sure to be amused with the commentary and questions Amanda has throughout her readings of The Unfairy Tale. This would be a wonderful addition to classrooms or the library of any upper elementary age students as it has wonderful lessons on how to cope with bullies and how to befriend those who may seem unworthy of friendship. I would highly recommend this story to parents and teachers, and I hope to read more from Shari Lane."
