by Lino de Albergaria translated by Hal Reames drawings by Andréa Vilela Rich with insight and wit, “Who’s Afraid of the Blue Fairy” describes the numerous conflicts that exist in contemporary life. More than we know, our children struggle to cope with differing worldviews, trying to make sense, among other things, of their parents’ ideas about “politically correct” education. These views touch on environmental and social issues as they intersect with the lure of advertising and consumerism. The latter is an almost irresistible energy, which surrounds our daily existence, as we immerse ourselves in our networked realities. This book begs the question: Can children survive, mature, and be happy without the pleasures and temptations related to the act of consuming?
