Three Wonderful Fairy Tales by Sergey Nikolov

I received copies of these books in exchange for my honest review. 

I love this author's writing style.  The stories are charming as are most fairy tales yet they have a wonderful lesson to be learned.

Princess Rose and the Golden Bird
This is a wonderful fairy tale of a young princess who loved roses. Everyone called her Princess Rose. Every night a golden bird would fly to her balcony. She and the bird sang and the people all had beautiful dreams,. One day a witch cast a spell on the roses. Princess Rose's hair turned black. When the bird came to her and they sang the people fell asleep and had nightmares. Princess Rose manages to break the curse only to have the witch cast it again. Want to know what happened? You must read this book to see what the witch did to Princess Rose and whether she can break the curse again.

The Legend of the Black Sea

What a lesson this story has. An old man, his dog and a black cat live by the sea. The dog doesn't like the black cat because it is black and doesn't help as much as he does. The old man is always telling the dog that he believes in the cat's goodness.  One day disaster strikes and the old man asks both the dog and cat to help.  When the cat doesn't he loses faith in its goodness. find out what happens when the old man loses faith in the cat's goodness.

In a kingdom lived a king with his little princess. He stayed with her always. He was afraid of losing her like he had lost her mother. Princess Selena had no friends. She became very sad and very ill. In heaven two little angels always played together. One of the m became bored and wanted someone else to play with. God tells them it is not a good idea. He gives in to the pleading.  Selena leaves her earthly body and goes to heaven.  Her father is so sad he won't leave her body.  Selena has so much fun.  After a while one of the angels gets upset because three is a crowd.  God sends Selena back to her body and her father learns to give her some freedom.  Selena grows up.  To find out what happens next to Selena and to both of the angels read the book.  It is wonderfully written.
