Review: Fairy!

Best friends Lena and Luka are back, and this time life has changed a little for Luka.

She has a new baby sister!

Luka loves Daisy, but baby sisters do bring challenges.

When Lena sleeps over and baby Daisy won’t stop crying, they try everything to calm her down. 

But everyone knows there’s only one thing that can help. 

A fairy!

In a whisp of starshine, a fairy flutters through the window to help. There is much calamity, bunnies turned to frogs and sticky crumbs on the pillow, but fairies know just what to do to help babies get to sleep.

Fairy! Is the fourth book in this gorgeous picture book series from Maggie Hutchings and Cheryl Orsini, following Unicorn!, Mermaid! and Dragon!

These books are so much fun. They capture what it’s like to be a kid and believe in the fantasy worlds you find through hidden doorways at the bottom of the garden. They explore all your favourite creatures and invite you into a reality where imagination makes them real.

Orsini’s illustrations are bright and bold. Every book in this series is filled with colour and glorious details to explore. They're funky and oh so delightful.

For the fans of the fantastical, Fairy!, and all the books in this series, will inspire wonder, curiosity and eagerness to step into the unknown.
