The Fairy Tale Project Trilogy

The Fairy Tale Project Trilogy includes the following books…

  • Will and the Magical Forest
  • Will and the River of Enchantment
  • Will and the Crystal Fairy

Follow Will, a city boy, on a magical adventure that begins when he visits his Grandpa Otus in the small country town of Astrophyllite. The two of them travel together through a magic forest where they meet some delightful and some downright frightening creatures that teach them patience, to take time and enjoy life, and also give them the opportunity to face their fears, something they discover they are capable of through the power of love.

After journeying through one realm after another in this mystical world, they make their way back home with a renewed appreciation for life, and for Grandpa Otus, an understanding of the need to honor his inner child and give him the attention he deserves… which in turn, makes for a stronger, happier adult.

The Fairy Tale Project is based on a series of children’s books written by author Dani Lynn and beautifully illustrated by award winning artist Jacklyn Laflamme. It began in March 2010 with a grant from the Art and Cultural Division of Broward County, Florida allowing the duo to share a vision to inspire and encourage young children to discover their own unique talents through story time readings and art and literature workshops throughout South Florida.

Coming Soon… “Bed Time Stories”

This upcoming book features the following short stories…

  • Jalina and the Quest Quilt
  • I Am Me
  • Kamenoko and his Magic Tiki-Ton Shell

Excerpt: Once upon a time in a small, secluded village atop a splendid, shimmering mountain in the land of Pani-Min lived a people descended from an ancient civilization called the Chroniclers. It was their respectable responsibility to keep safe the ancient stories of all the authors and the architects and the artisans of creation.

One morning on a gay day in the month of May, the people of the village gathered for a rare and special occasion; the announcement that a new baby was soon to be born in the village… a brand new Pani-Min child. That meant it was time for the Chroniclers to create a new Quest Quilt… as was done for each and every new child.

They began gathering wool from their fabled Fancy Sheep to make the quilt, famous because each and every member of the flock was born with its own uniquely colored wool. The Chroniclers then brought the wool they collected to the center of the village where they lit a ceremonial fire and gathered together to create the new Quest Quilt.

The Chroniclers surrounded the small crackling fire as the village shaman, Madame NePani, a short and wide and colorful woman covered with beads and sacred feathers from the Pani-Min-Tee bird lead them all in a Quest Quilt Ceremony. The Shaman Chronicler announced with great pride for all the creatures of the earth and sky and rivers to hear, that a brand new child was on the way.
