The Fairy Chronicles: Dragonfly And The Web Of Dreams


Jennifer Sommerset was excited. Her friends and their fairy mentors were coming to her house. They would finally learn some fairy magic. While she waited for her friends, she enjoyed a conversation with Mr. Wimple, a garden gnome, tending to her Mom's garden. It seemed that Mr. Wimple, like her, was having bad dreams. Soon Jennifer and her friend would learn why. Would their fairy powers be enough to solve the problem?

Reader Enjoyment Factors:

This series offers fantasy and adventure in a wholesome story with down-to-earth lessons. The material is excellent for readers still building their confidence (middle readers, remedial readers).

Content Awareness Factors:


Little Kid Reaction

This book definitely tells a fascinating and adventurous tale of the fairies’ adventures. The characters are all very well created, with contrasting, vibrant, and brave personalities. They demonstrate numerous positive traits that affect the reader. For example, Dragonfly is active and enthusiastic about recycling and saving the environment. She takes a firm, dedicated initiative and affects the actions of others with her lectures as well. The journey demonstrates how the girls' effective teamwork and cooperation contributes greatly to their accomplishments. The plot is full of twists, turns, and suspense, and has lots of descriptive language. There are also colorful illustrations on almost every other page. The content and language of this book is most suitable for children aged 7-10. I think this is a great book, filled with excitement, imagination, and friendship.

Big Kid Reaction

We read this one fairly close on the heals of book one Marigold and the Feather of Hope, the Journey Begins. While we thought there was a little too much overlapping detail, overall, this was a better story. The plot lines are unique, imaginative, and "realistic" for the genre.

Type of Book:
This is the second title in the adventure sereis for girls ages 7 and up.
Educational Themes:

Kids can relate to the characters and concepts in these stories. It is easy to bring the stories to life with searches and hunts for clues about fairies in your yard. Instructions for making a dream bracelet are included, too.
