Review: Princess and Fairy - A Very Sparkly Christmas

It’s Christmas Eve and the Keepers of Christmas have asked Princess and Fairy to decorate the grand Evergreen Moor tree. Adorable bunnies Princess and Fairy need to find all the items on their sparkly to do list before everyone in Fairyland gathers for the midnight Christmas display.

Princess and Fairy’s Christmas Eve adventure is revealed in Anna Pignataro’s sweet rhyming story and gorgeous detailed watercolour illustrations. The two bunnies wander through the streets marvelling at the Christmas decorations and activities. They have a list of tree decorations they need to find, with two or three items from the list to be found on each double page.

This lovely Christmas seek-and-find book will delight little girls as they follow Princess and Fairy along the boardwalk of Christmas Sea Wonders at Starfish Beach, watch the Noel Parade march and visit a variety of Fairyland locations including Gingerbread Lane. When they finally arrive at Evergreen Moor, they find the tree decorated with the ornaments they have found and a liberal dash of silver glitter to make everything sparkle.

A Very Sparkly Christmas is a lovely book to read with young children in the lead up to Christmas.
