ReEnchantment’s engaging tale – laced with magic and whimsy – brings alive memorable children’s yarns and classic sagas as the reader and story’s fictional family experience how much fun and instruction can be found in the pages of good books.

Following a father’s job promotion and the family’s move
to California, the Jacobsens are content to trust their children’s education to the local public schools until a calamity forces these parents to look more closely at what’s been going on – there aren’t any Christmas Carols at the school’s Winter Festival, and a bully has been stealing their son’s lunch.

As Miriam unpacks her family's
lives, we learn more about these folks from the Midwest; And we meet Peter, their crotchety neighbor, whose resumé includes teaching at parochial schools and a local college, but whose unkempt yard and life – just like the selfish giant’s in Oscar Wilde’s story– hasn’t seen Spring for years.

Yet things can change, and do, when the Jacobsens realize that educating their kids is their primary responsibility; and with God’s help and that of some new friends – real and make believe – they find the courage to slay the modern day dragons in their way.
