Flory is born a night fairy. After losing her still-growing wings to a bat, she decides to become a day fairy. If that sounds easy, it's not, as Flory quickly discovers. But Flory has big plans to go beyond "surviving" to thriving. No great journey is without its bumps, but is she going to survive in a world that isn't her own?
Come along for the ride in this sweet, magical adventure. Wings not required.
Holding this book is like holding Flory in your hand. The illustrations are gorgeous. The story itself reminded me of The Borrowers, a book I loved as a kid. This is a quiet book that may be too esoteric for some listeners.
Have you ever wondered what magic happens in nature when you are not looking? The Night Fairy gives a brief insight into this quaint, yet difficult realm through the eyes of a fairy.
It is nuanced take on fairies, and the story is amplified with beautiful pictures. This book is a nice read for young children who love fairy tales. It is especially fitting for those ages 8 to 12. With themes of resilience and leadership, the story develops a deeper meaning as the reader grows.
This is an adventure featuring a feisty, strong fairy character.
Enjoy this as a fairy tale.

Buy. It is a story you'll love and a book you'll treasure. Odds are pretty good you'll pull the book from the shelf just to look at the illustrations.
