Fairy Tales

E. E. Cummings. Liveright Publishing Corporation, $17.95 (64pp) ISBN 978-0-87140-658-3

Meilo So's airy watercolors make an ideal pairing for a quartet of fantastical tales of elephants, fairies and other creatures, Fairy Tales by E.E. Cummings. ""The Elephant and the Butterfly"" and ""The House That Ate Mosquito Pie,"" both stories of love between unexpected parties, benefit from So's compositions, which match Cummings's tales for warmth and optimism. .
