Authors Elise Allen and Halle Stanford create a fun and magical journey in JIM HENSON'S ENCHANTED SISTERS: AUTUMN'S SECRET GIFT. The book is a treat for early readers who love all things sparkly, pink, and sweet. Magical animals and princesses; a kind, caring mother; and a fluffy, fun ride will go a long way to capture the imagination of young readers. Targeted specifically toward girls, the story does a disservice to the boys in the book. When they do appear, boys are described as troublemakers and are shown to have quite the mean streak. Even the adult male who leads them is regarded with dislike and suspicion. These characteristics make this the kind of story that may feed into the negative "boys-versus-girls" mentality.

A couple of things that stand out are the focus on sisterhood despite disagreements and the multicultural cast of characters. Overall, the series has a promising start and surely will be a favorite of little girls who like a little bit of magic.
