Children's Literature
For centuries we have dreamed of a world where fairies and imps existed, a world similar to ours but more magical, where the impossible could take place. In this companion piece to the award-winning Fairy Wings, Mills and Nolan once again capture the essence of this fantasy world. With lush and lively illustrations accompanying the rich text, they weave the story of one wingless fairy, Fia, who is engaged to be married to the Prince. However, instead of fretting over wedding plans, like the other fairies expect her to, Fia has compassion for the woodkins, who are desperately trying to store up food for the upcoming winter. Pretty soon, Fia finds herself even more involved with her woodkin friends as two of them wind up missing and she goes off to find them. It isn't long before Fia is in trouble with the Prince and is facing the evil Imp. What results is a story filled with adventure and suspense. This delightful book is a great addition to any collection. 2002, Little Brown,

Gr 1-3-In this companion volume to Fairy Wings (Little, Brown, 1995), Mills and Nolan once again create a magical fantasy world drawn in ethereal watercolors. Fia, a wingless fairy, is a devoted friend of the lowly earthbound woodkins, who are despised and mocked by the other fairies. She shows her courage and wits when mischievous woodkin twins float downriver on a raft they've been forbidden to ride and she must find and rescue them. This world is populated with unusual creatures, including a delightfully wicked imp, the colorful and tattered woodkins, and some culturally diverse fairies. The ending will satisfy its audience with the declaration by Kip, the fairy prince, that "From this day forward, fairies and woodkins will be friends who work together for the good of all." The text is lengthy and sophisticated, and is suitable for longer or multiple read-aloud sessions.-Shelley B.
