This is high flying fairy fun and a grand day out for Cinnabar and her friends. Unfortunately, they aren't out just to have fun because they must solve a large human problem - that of missing shadows that were supposed to be delivered to newborn babies. The girls and mentors (older fairies) travel to the Island of Shadows to unravel the mystery and fix the problem. They have an exciting stand off with the Demon of Light and a Chimera. If you are looking for magic, excitement and adventure, you can't go wrong with Cinnabar and the Island of Shadows, recommended for readers ages 7-13.

I recommend this book because it is a quick and enjoyable read. The magic of the book is not 'out of reach' for us mainly because the story starts out in the real world and keeps connecting us back there. We do find out magical reasons why we have a shadow, but we can easily imagine that the reasons might be real. I recommend this book for ages six to ten. I plan to purchase a copy for my young niece who is five for Christmas. I think she will grow into this book.
