Last week my family went to the Arizona Renaissance Festival. It was great! I caught a stone thrown by the Queen, I got to eat 2 huge pickles, I met a mermaid, saw people eat fire, and even got to meet a fairy! I was very excited when we got the Twig the Fairy and the Curious Land of Real book so I could read it to my sisters.
This book was different from other books that we have. This book has photographs instead of drawings. I like that this book has pictures instead of drawings because you can see real fairies and mermaids in the book, since you can’t see them in real life! The land of fairies is different because it has bubble blowing flowers, mermaids, and magic flowers, too.
If I were going to write a book, I would use pictures because pictures help the reader understand what is going on in the story and to show what there doing. Next, I would use pictures because it can show the reader how they feel, what their actions are and there facial expressions so you just know how the character feels and acts. Last, I would have pictures because the reader can see real pictures from the story and see there setting and where they take place!!
My favorite part is when Twig gives the three girls the stone and the three girls find the land of fairy and explore. It feels like a magical story because it showed me I could put the stone under my pillow and I can visit the world of fairies! To me, that is magical. Every time I read this book it reminds me of it because we saw Twig and mermaids there, so that is why it reminds me of the Renaissance Festival!
If you live in Arizona, near Phoenix, and want to visit the Renaissance Festival then you can do that on the weekends until April 1st 2018! Then, it will go away until next year. Learn more at arizona.renfestinfo.com.
