Overview


Everybody knows that fairies are charming little creatures, dainty, pretty, and tidy. Airy Fairy is different. Young readers who make her acquaintance soon realize that she does have charm--but dainty? Tidy? Not Airy Fairy! Kids will laugh as they read these stories about the messiest fairy in town. Funny stories, vivid characters, and amusing line art fill the pages of the Airy Fairy series. Each story appears in chapters, just like an adult's novel, but Airy Fairy's humorous adventures are written on a level that will appeal to girls and boys. In this funny story, Airy Fairy's classroom report is the worst her school has ever seen, and she must complete a special fairy task during the Christmas holidays to make up for her poor grades. The result is fun and laughter. Black-and-white illustrations on nearly every page.

"It's nearly Christmas and all the fairies are looking forward to their Christmas party. Except for Airy Fairy. Her school report card is so bad that she's been sent to sit on top of a prickly Christmas tree!..."--Cover back.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This breezy snippet of a story introduces the Airy Fairy series, centering on a student at a school for orphaned fairies, located in a tree house high up in an old oak. As the tale opens, the other young fairies proudly show off the spring flowers they have grown. But in Airy Fairy's pot are bloomless sprouts, which headmistress Fairy Gropplethorpe identifies as spring onions. The one responsible for the gardening mishap is Airy Fairy's nemesis, sneaky Scary Fairy, who always gets everything right and constantly tries to get Airy Fairy in trouble. In the simple plot, the fairies attempt three tasks, which they can use magic to complete. Miss Stickler directs them to clean up their bedrooms, paint the walls of their rooms and "magic up" a present for Fairy Gropplethorpe's birthday. Even though Scary Fairy sabotages Airy Fairy's spells, the good little fairy lands on top in kid-pleasing fashion. The narrative's brevity and Murfin's comically hyperbolic drawings make this a good choice for reluctant readers. Youngsters will likely be sufficiently drawn to this bumbling, likable protagonist to reach for her other misadventures: Magic Mischief! (0-7641-3186-9), Magic Mix-Up! (0-7641-3189-3) and Magic Muddle! (0-7641-3187-7) being published simultaneously. Ages 7-10. (July) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
