Synopsis:Julietta the Carpenter can build almost anything using wood, metal or fabric. Her skills are put to the test when she runs afoul of her corrupt King. This new fairy tale introduces a resourceful heroine to the boys and girls of today.
From Grandma's Perspective:I don't know if I am more impressed with Jason Sandberg as an author or an illustrator, but I sure envy him the talent to be able to do both! Once again he has written and illustrated a charming tale about a kingdom contolled and ruled by an evil King. Julietta is a very talented member of the kingdom and she of course is pure and good and like Mr. Sandberg, so talented in many ways. She can craft with many mediums--fabric, metals, wood and she can give promising and hopeful advice to her fellow kingdom dwellers, which angers the king immensely. This story shows the plight between goodness and evil, as well as providing hope for the young in dire circumstances. You know the old adage, where there is a will, there is a way. I also applaud the fact that it is an empowering tale for young girls everywhere!
Well done Mr. Sandberg....very well done! I will definitely be sharing this with my young lady! 5 WINKS!
