It's time for our June edition of "Best New Kids Books!" Hooray for plenty of lazy, beautiful, summer reading time. And, for some, it's also time for prepping growing littles for preschool or kindergarten

Written under the guise of Miss Edythe McFate, narrator of Modern Fairies
Allow me to introduce myself: I am Miss Edythe McFate. You may have read my new book, Modern Fairies, Dwarves. Goblins, and Other Nasties. A simply divine short story collection and a guidebook all at once, Modern Fairies is most instructive. It teaches today’s children how to engage with the modern fairy realm that thrives around us every day and everywhere.
Lately I’ve gotten many letters from readers wondering what fairies get up to during the holiday season. After all, if fairies are so modern these days, are they out buying presents for one another and trussing up turkeys to eat and hanging up stockings for a fairy Santa Claus?
