Review: Quick as a Wink, Fairy Pink

This bedtime story is a dreamy rhyming tale of five little fairies, fluttering off to bed--Fairy Blue, Fairy Green, Fairy Gold, Fairy Red and of course--Fairy Pink.

Fairy Pink is the smallest one, you see, and she loves to cause a bit of mischief. Hiding under the bed. In the hamper. Peeking from a box in the wardrobe. 

While the other fairies brush their teeth and slip on their PJs, Fairy Pink continues to gad about until ... sleep catches up with her, too.
Repetitive text and a fun ending will both resonate with and lull busy kids as they settle in for the night.

Sara Acton's adorable, loosely-rendered illustrations are washed with sweet pastel colours, their warmth and humour marrying so well with the text.

Cute as a pink button. With wings.
