The Legend of Dust Bunnies, a Fairy’s Tale – Book Review

The Legend of Dust Bunnies, a Fairy's Tale

The Legend of Dust Bunnies, a Fairy’s Tale

Author, Michelle R. Eastman

Illustrator, Kevin Richter


This is not a typical fairy tale, and Artie is not a typical fairy. Artie is a misfit. His fellow Dust Fairies have a knack for dirtying people’s houses. They fire soot from their slingshots and enter crumb-spitting contests. While we sleep, they spread dust everywhere. Artie doesn’t make messes. He has a unique habit of collecting things. The other Dust Fairies don’t appreciate Artie’s collection of tidbits, so he spends his nights alone. One cold night, Artie’s loneliness leads to inspiration, and he creates something legendary. His story will have families looking at Dust Bunnies in a new light and may actually give kids an excuse NOT to clean their rooms. Artie’s story helps kids realize that we all have unique gifts and not everyone fits in with the crowd. (Children’s Picture Book, ages 3-9)

Book Review

‘The Legend of Dust Bunnies, a Fairy’s Tale’ by author, Michelle R. Eastman, is a well written, and beautifully illustrated, delightful fairy tale. Using creative rhymes, Michelle R. Eastman writes a tale explaining where dust bunnies come from, and how one young fairy finds his place in the fairy world.

The tale is full of action, adventure, imagination, and magic. It is a wonderful read for the young and the young at heart. I highly recommend this book.

5 Stars
