An “Uplifting” Tale

Leave a comment

Princess HyacinthI discovered a delightful book today.  I knew that the illustrator Lane Smith had collaborated on a princess story with Frances Parry Heide, but finally looked at it it today.  I was poking around Buttonwood Books and Toys in Cohasset and, to my delight, saw Princess Hyacinth: The Surprising Tale of a Girl Who Floated in a stand-alone display case.  I’ve always been a Lane Smith fan so I sat right down on the floor and read the story.  What fun!  Such an original and whimsical little tale!

On another note, Happy 20th Birthday to Buttonwood Books and Toys.   I have been a customer for nearly all of those years and have enjoyed every recommendation and conversation along the way.  Thanks for staying with us during these challenging times for independent bookstores!
