Once there was a girl who lived in a castle. The castle was inside a museum. When children visited, they’d press against the glass globe in which the castle sat, to glimpse the tiny girl. But when they went home, the girl was lonely. Then one day, she had an idea! What if you hung a picture of yourself inside the castle inside the museum, inside this book? Then you’d able to keep the girl company. Reminiscent of “The Lady of Shalot,” here is an original fairy tale that feels like a dream—haunting, beautiful, and completely unforgettable.

The title may be rather unwieldy but it’s certainly accurate. Inside a large snow globe, inside a toy museum, is a castle, and children who press their faces against the glass can spot a tiny girl in the tower. The castle is lovely, and the girl has her own toys inside, but she’s lonely when the children leave. Her dreams take her to visit a boy in the deep woods or in search of a friend waiting to play: Sometimes she even dreams about you. The story, which on its own seems thin and even odd, is elevated by the breathtaking illustrations executed in acrylic, featuring clay models that give the artwork depth and weight. Digital nhancements provide the pictures with an airbrushed smoothness that is expecially effective in the close-ups of the children, and the use of unusual perspectives adds to the feelings of mystery and longing in the book. Enticed by the art to enter this dreamy world, children will contemplate the nature of reality evoked by the girl’s life. Preschool-Grade 1. --Ilene Cooper
