Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Silverman
American children may be a little lost in some of the assumptions in this charming book. Loretta's doll Arabella is her constant companion. One day she meets a fairy-child in the garden. The fairy is in disgrace, and needs to grow up fast so that she can get back to her own land. Loretta tries to help, feeding the fairy cherry soup, taking her to school, and helping her learn to bake a cake, but nothing is good enough until the fairy learns that she can help Loretta. Funny little illustrations add to the charm.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-- An imaginative Swiss import that's more difficult than a beginning reader and easier than, for example, Cleary's ``Ramona'' books. Loretta meets a strange little girl who can make herself invisible and says she's a fairy sent to the human world to grow up because she has been naughty. In seven short chapters, Loretta tries all sorts of things to help the Little Fairy grow up: she feeds her cherry soup, teaches her to bake a raisin cake, and takes her to school so she can learn to read and write. But nothing works. The Little Fairy finally solves her own problem most satisfactorily and gains another friend for Loretta as well. Sprightly pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations add to the story's fanciful air--the children are depicted as scruffy and ordinary, with jeans and messy hair, but their garden surroundings teem with whimsical life: a cat and bird can be spotted in almost every picture, dressed in ridiculous medieval headgear (perhaps older fairies sent to keep an eye on the Little Fairy?), and the bees and butterflies have lively faces and mischievous looks. The entire effect is lighthearted and warm, radiating infectious good humor that is quite appealing.-- Judy Constantinides, East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library , LA
