Overview

Fairyland is in terrible trouble! Some wicked force is growing there and Earth itself may be in danger. A few brave souls risk everything to return to the world they left long ages ago. Their careful plans are thwarted when fate or someone’s evil intentions cause them to arrive in Manitoba rather than Ireland. The fairies face up to their problems and, while their lives don’t go exactly uphill again, they don’t go downhill either. The curious tale in this book is only one of many that could be told. It is full of indomitable courage and nonstop action interspersed with moments of quiet peace, gentle humor, and a few bad puns. The characters spend time in Winnipeg, near a gold mine in eastern Manitoba, and on the shores of Lake Winnipeg, a truly great freshwater sea. Just before the "explosive” ending the twelve-year-old hero, James, finds himself, thanks to fairy magic, as part of a small group of lifelong friends.

Meet the Author

"My living room window overlooks a green open valley surrounded by tall trees, and below my bedroom window is a broad creek which sings to me in times of high water and whispers secrets in a dry spell. Last month I saw a seven point buck in the bushes on the far side, and a week earlier a beautiful white heron decided to fish below a nearby man-made riffle. Across from my balcony doors is a wonderful optical illusion I call the enchanted castle. In the real world it is a plain rather utilitarian block that is usually hidden behind a thick screen of leaves, but when the sun is setting it becomes a storybook castle with a turret and a tower standing proud against a fiery sky. Surrounded by over six hundred thousand people, there is a kind of Manitoba magic in the air and I doubt the real Fairyland could offer more.” —Francis-Mary Brown
