Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
The Knot Fairy is a free-spirited fantasy picturebook, about a fairy that visits sleeping children to tie knots in their hair. The pink, purple, and sepia-hued color illustrations by artist Kristi Bridgeman add a delightful touch to this warm-hearted story meant to be shared with young people right before bedtime. "So, if your hair goes this way and that... / and you're thinking of hiding it under a hat... / just look in the mirror and shout with glee, / "It looks like the Knot Fairy visited me!" An audio CD of the story read aloud by author and educator Bobbie Hinman, as well as an original "Fairy Song", complements this fanciful title.

Do you believe in fairies? If you do, then you will love the Knot Fairy and her unique ability. Also, does your hair go into knots and tangles, especially when you are asleep? Why, of course it is the Knot Fairy! She just loves to tie knots! Read The Knot Fairy and listen to the CD to find out more about this fun, charming, and spirited fairy. (Shh, don¿t tell. She has tangles in her hair too!) Bobbie Hinman has written a book as fun, charming, and spirited as the Knot Fairy herself. A sweet, lively quality is also present in Kristi Bridgeman¿s watercolor illustrations. The rhyming story flows, carrying the reader along, as do the cheerful, frolicking pictures. Together they make a page-turner of a book. The reader follows the Knot Fairy on every page, where she even ties knots in the dog and cat. She is sometimes hidden a bit, so the young booklover will enjoy hunting for her. An added treat is the enclosed CD with the story read by Bobbie. There is also the endearing ¿The Knot Fairy Song¿ sung in such a clear, true voice by Bobbie, accompanied by her grandchildren. It is fun to sing-along. This is indeed a book to be cherished, and it is highly recommended for ages 2-8. Preschools, day care programs, and Kindergarten classrooms can also use the book for drama, music, and art.
