The Night Fairy

by Laura Amy Schlitz
Illustrated by Angela Barrett


Flory is a young night fairy who loses her wings to an accidental collision with a bat. Now she must live by her wits and her tiny fairy magic or be a quick snack to one of the hungry day creatures in a small garden. Flory is a fierce little creature and quickly makes a home for herself and a friend of sorts—as long as he's willing to do exactly what she says.

I believe bossy little Flory will be a character many young girls can relate to—and her fierce determination is a trait they'll admire as well. Flory tackles dangers far larger than herself and prevails with courage and quick thinking. The delicate full-color illustrations add depth and vibrancy to Flory's world without losing a bit of the magic of the tiny fairy's existence. This book is definitely a charmer.
