The Goose Girl

If I look up the author of a book to find out more about her, it’s a sure sign that I really liked the book. I just finished reading The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale, and I went immediately to the web to see if she had any more books out and to find out something about the author. Ms. Hale loves Robin McKinley and C.S. Lewis, both of whom adapted fairy tales into novels. The Goose Girl is based on the Grimm fairy tale of the same name. It’s a great story about betrayal, and identity, and language, and finding one’s own voice. I’m quite impressed and happy to read that Shannon Hale has two more novels, Enna Burning, published last fall, and The Princess Academy, due out this summer.

  1. I’m going to have to get them for my #1 daughter (age 10 and bookworm). Did your clan read Sabriel/Lyriel/Abhorsen by Garth Nix? She (and I) liked that series.

  2. The Texas Library Association Texas Lonestar List includes some of the best books I have read this year.
