I finished Nancy Springer's FAIR PERIL this morning, sleepy eyes having sent me to bed to ponder and dream my own variations on the wild and wonderful story . . .
Alice in a doubly-weird Wonderland combined with a reminder of Sir Gawain's Loathly Lady's puzzle, "What do women (and men, and frogs) most want."
Reflecting on the theme of people and objects being more than one thing at once, I will be looking carefully for multiple possibilities here in the "real world.” I wonder if I should visit the mall. Also, reminded of a few friends, good women cast off for newer model brides . . . this book would be most therapeutic.
A few wise quotes:
“She was always watching for stories, for truth, not for facts, so the teachers thought she was stupid.” (Giving thanks for my kindergarten teacher gently advising me to ask my father to talk with me about his rainbow story — basis of my “Real Vs. Make-Believe” story).
“Prison . . . the inability to go, to do, to act.” “Make a new story”

Couldn't Forget! So Much FunReviewed in the United States on 24 February 2011
I read this book sometime in the nineties, and I adored it. Made the mistake of loaning it to a friend who 'lost' it! Over the past five years I have been searching the internet on and off trying to find it, this has been difficult because I couldn't remember the title or author. Frustrating. So tonight after spending two more hours searching the internet I found it! YEAH! I can't remember much detail but know it is a great story, lots of fun, a book I couldn't forget.
