Abstract
I include this book in the collection not because I think The Lucky Boots should be viewed as a fable but because this volume is part of a series that is labeled Famous Fables. This twenty-page children's picture book extends onto its back endpaper with tips for parents, including strategies, discussion questions, and activities that grow out of the story. The Lucky Boots is new to me. It is a highly romantic story about the apprentice fairy Lucky earning her wings by learning the difference between wishful thinking and true wishes. Green boots sprinkled with fairy dust are the medium for giving people their wishes. In the end, a single army captain pursues his own wish and obtains it, just as Lucky obtains her wings.
