This is a good book for children 8 and up. It is intense in places and might scare some children who are imagining that they are Flory.

The book is a charming book but a little odd. The night fairy, Flory, is a nicely developed character and a strong girl. She does not look for others to improve her situation but develops her own skills and strengths. After her wing is injured by a bat at night, she bec...
The book is a charming book but a little odd. The night fairy, Flory, is a nicely developed character and a strong girl. She does not look for others to improve her situation but develops her own skills and strengths. After her wing is injured by a bat at night, she becomes a day fairy so she doesn't have to deal with bats again. She befriends a squirrel named Skuggle. She then meets a hummingbird who gives her rides. She wants the bird to serve her but the bird forthrightly tells her that she cannot. The hummingbird will still give her rides but cannot be available at her beck and call. Flory then protects the hummingbird's nest from a praying mantis, a spider and a raccoon. A bat comes swooping in to help chase the raccoon away. Even though her wing is growing back nicely, Flory still cannot fly well. The bat, who is the one who injured her because he thought she was a luna moth, apologizes and offers to give her rides around the garden. She tells the bat, Peregrine, that, "Now that I am not afraid of you, I am not afraid of anything." The hummingbird gives Flory a ride to the nest so she can see the baby hummingbirds whom she protected. This illustration is the best one in the book. But the ending is what is awful about the book. Flory falls asleep and the squirrel comes to asks her about the cherries she was supposed to bring. I think the book should have ended after she sees the baby hummingbirds; it is like the author didn't know where to end the story.
