                    An Almost True Story
Sheila Kogan  and illustrated by Stefan Turk
2018
I would really like to go here one day.  ‘Lambs of Fairy Glen An Almost True Story’ of Scotland.  Sheila wrote a story of a family and their European vacation starting in the city well the town of Uig.  While visiting twin sisters Hilda and Heather and a few other townsfolk make the family welcome and share many interesting facets of Scotland.  Throughout the story they hear about Viking history and a very special story well more of a legend of Scotland.
‘Lambs of Fairy Glen’ is well illustrated by Stefan Turk for he uses matte colors that was subdued to show Scotland’s climate.  As the story progresses the twins learn and believe in a folktale they heard.  The sisters also learn learn who they can trust and not trust.  This is a picture story book written for children, but really anyone can and should read it for it does give an idea to the reader what Scotland is like pictorially.
Teachers could use this picture story book to teach a world history lesson of the Vikings and even a lesson on Scotland geography and culture.  Counselors and social workers could use this picture book to discuss cheating and lying to a point and illustrate proper communication and social skills.
Lambs of Fairy Glen is a warm and humorous story about lamb power, where kindness and love overcome malevolence.  It is beautifully illustrated with twenty-two paintings filled with wit and whimsy.  A universal tale, Lambs of Fairy Glen is designed for eight-year olds but is appropriate for eight to eighty.
