Synopsis

Steadfast Tin Soldier by Cynthia Rylant

As in the original, the tin soldier's love for the beautiful ballerina is thwarted by a troll, he is separated from the other toys, washed down a storm drain, encounters a rat, gets swallowed by a fish, and manages to end up back home. Unlike in the original, however, the tin soldier is spit, white hot, out of the fire and into the arms of the dancer, thus melding the two together so they'll never be apart.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
