Overview

Tiny fairies.  Huge adventure.

Matilda Whipplethorn is about to get what she’s always wanted, and it’s a bad thing. Being a babysitter isn’t much of a dream for the average girl, but Matilda is anything but average.  She’s half a centimeter tall, invisible to the human eye, and hearing-impaired.  Her mother won’t let her forget any of that. So for Matilda, adventures are in short supply.  Finally agreeing to let Matilda take some responsibility, her mother gives her a list of emergency procedures for babysitting.  The only problem; humans aren’t on the list. 

Minutes into her first job, watching her sister and an obnoxious neighbor, humans appear in isolated Whipplethorn Manor. They tear her home, the fireplace mantel, right off the wall of Whipplethorn and Matilda’s afternoon babysitting job goes long term.  

When the mantel ends up on display in an antique mall, the security that Matilda always took for granted is gone.  She can lock the doors, but that doesn’t keep the kids in or spriggans and the fly-eating phalanx fairies out.  Matilda’s up for an adventure, if only she could hear it coming.

    I love this book which I read in no time - couldn't put it dow

    I love this book which I read in no time - couldn't put it down. It reminded me of The Borrowers which I read as a kid and reread to my granddaughter. This wonderful fantasy of tiny fairies in the mantel and whole races of wood fairies in the antique mall makes for great adventure. I especially love Soren Maple, the leader of the fairies who look like sticks. Oh, for drawings or pictures. Matilda is the heroine of the tale who starts her babysitting career with the horrible Gerald. Boy, does this remind me of my own babysitting mishaps. Matilda is such a lovable character with all the fallacies of an adolescent but who steadfastly protects her charges through a war and on to a new home. I hope a sequel is in the works

    This was the most awesomes book I've read!

    I knew she was a fairy because it had it in the title. Matiltda was a brave fairy. Her mantle(her home) was taken away to an antuic store. It was very interesting how she defended her self with fire.I think this was the best book i read! It is great for a free book. I thought it was going to be boring because all the athor books the author wrote cost money. You should get the book your self. Trust me it's a great book.

    Hello

    A very well-written free 200 page book of the world from a fairy's point of view. Great little adventure tale. To the inquiry, the 'butterfly' on her finger in front of her eye has two legs and is wearing a dress.
