The Last Slice of Rainbow

Book Review   by:Kedra Kay     Original Author: Joan Aiken
ª
 
“The Last Slice of Rainbow” The Last Slice of Rainbow is a series of children’s tales, ones they can get lost in and have a great deal of fun. Clem chases rainbows, makes a haggard old witch happy, and guides the reader into the next tale about a troll who wants nothing more than to steal a child’s bicycle and ride away, not into the sunset but into the path of a moving car! Just turn the pages to see how Joan Aiken sets that tale up right. A child born into royalty has no choice, and the tale of the Queen with Screaming Hair is no different. Whacking off a cat’s whiskers is mischievous, but what if the consequences are dire? In this case it was. Will little Christina learn to ignore her screaming, not so nice hair, or will she become a well-disciplined queen? This tale will keep any little girl hanging onto the edge of her seat. Haven’t you ever wished to have more than a memory when it comes to your childhood home especially if it was sold, leveled, or just doesn’t belong to you any more? What if a piece of that property misses you too, and desperately? The tale of The Tree that Loved a Girl is just that. This tree is willing to give leaves, a branch, and perhaps it’s life to have the child dance under its branches happily once again. But what if the child can never go back again. Maybe she can’t, but the truth is, stories like these have magic that make the impossible something rich and favorable. What if you lose your legs in another tale? How will you catch them? The Last Slice of Rainbow is simply a collection of tales that will keep children in awe, and parents grateful that their child was entertained.
