You got into these boys' heads and emotions very well. The characters were believable. Twins seem to feed off one another just as they did in this story. Good work.

Yvette
This is a nice story of a wonderful babysitter with a twist. The end answered my questioon on how she could be a babysitter for both a father and his children. Maybe when the children get older they'll be able
to see the troll and the hidden fairy wings. I like the infusion of fantasy with reality.
Congrats for the second place finish in the contest.
Keep writing
Joan

    LOL!! ;) So glad you enjoyed this fun little twist, Joan -- you know the blonde over here, she just cannot write a 'straight-up reality' story...too much work! ;) :) Thanx for the review and have an awesome week! ;) Yvette

    You are most kindly welcome, as Cinderella said the the Prince, in my version of the play on DVD. I agree with you about true stories.
    Have a great week.

Hi job! ... You win. I never had time for fantasy horror events in my life. Alas, I was busy coping with the real ones. A fun Monday nite read. Makes me glad I never had children. - Lobber

This is such a cute story! Will there be more to come? I hope so! The dialogue was amazingly
Intetesting, like a real conversation between adults and children. The detail of her biting the inside of her cheek is clever...it gives the reader a clue to how she loves the children, and knows what they are talking about. Love it!
Congrats on your win!

    Oh, I'm so glad you enjoyed this one, Tina -- three sons gives me a 'leg up' on these types of interactions...LOL!! ;) I hadn't planed on more of Faye's magical babysitting expertise, but I've had a number of questions.... so, I might have to consider it! ;) :) Thank you so much for these lovely stars and such an awesome review, my lady -- take care out there!! ;) Yvette

    I hope you do write more. Know what
    your stories remind me of? A little Mary Poppins and a bit of Berenstein Bears, where there's a different adventure each book!
    Hugs!

This is a great contest entry, YM. I enjoyed reading it. Your attention to details add to the enjoyment. Your descriptive words and dialogue do as well. You had me believing this was a 'normal' babysitting story. I was surprised with the great twist and how you continued to expand on it rather than just say it and leave--sorry for the run-on sentence. Thanks for sharing and best wishes. Respectfully with Love and Admiration, Jan

I liked your boys' characters, and the emergence of the troll was perfect. Was Freckles a coon or a cat? I also liked the emergence of the baby-sitter's real nature

Wow, this story left me mesmerized. I just love your writing style, it's so magical. I love everything about this story, from the interaction between Miss Faye through to the final revelation which I loved! This story is just perfect, especially for people like me who love fairytales.
