Read an Excerpt

Excerpt from Chapter One: Moonflower

Early morning on Valentine's Day, Erin Young was setting out materials for valentine making. Erin was staying the weekend at her grandmother's house because her parents were vacationing at a bed and breakfast for their anniversary.

This year, Valentine's Day fell on a Saturday,which was perfect. In about an hour, Erin's friend, Bailey Richardson, was due to arrive for a two-night sleepover.This was also a three-day weekend because Monday was President's Day, so the girls would have plenty of time for their planned activities.

Erin carefully laid out the ribbons, paper punches, stencils, fancy stationery, glitter, rubber stamps, glue, and markers for making valentines. The girls were also planning to make several friendship bracelets as gifts, so Erin got out embroidery floss in various colors and an assortment of tiny beads.

Later in the afternoon, the girls would be attending a special celebration, during which they would exchange the valentine and bracelet creations.

Having moved from Kentucky to Texas the previous year, Erin was especially happy to have made a friend like Bailey. Erin had just turned ten years old in January, and Bailey was nearly eleven. Even though Bailey was a year older, the girls had a lot in common because in addition to being just like regular girls, they were also fairies. This meant that they had each been given a fairy spirit.

Blessed with a moonflower fairy spirit, Erin was known as Moonflower to other fairies. Standard fairy form was six inches high. In fairy form, Moonflower wore a creamy white dress made of softly glowing moonflower petals. Her pointy, pearly-white slippers matched her dress, and she had tall, fringed, milky-white wings. She also wore a moonflower hairclip to pull back her long, curly brown hair.

In the belt of her dress Moonflower carried a small pouch of pixie dust, the fairy handbook, and her wand, which was an enchanted icicle that would never melt. The icicle glinted and shone in the light like a beautiful crystal prism.

Pixie dust was glittering magical dust provided for the fairies by Mother Nature and used for various purposes. And the fairy handbook contained answers to fairy questions, along with information and advice to help fairies make wise decisions.

It was a valuable tool for young fairies and had the ability to age with them. Right now, Moonflower's handbook gave answers to questions that a ten-year-old would understand. As she grew older, and needed more information, the handbook would give more detailed explanations of the sort that a maturing fairy would find useful. Moonflower's handbook was a soft, pale green color, which was different than those of the Texas fairies. This was because it had originated in Kentucky. Most of the Texas fairies carried handbooks of a fawn tan color.

Sometimes fairy spirits ran in families. Moonflower's younger sister, Darlene, was also a fairy. Darlene was eight and was blessed with the fairy spirit of a teasel plant, which was both an herb and a wildflower.

Each young fairy was assigned a mentor fairy as a supervisor. This was necessary because it was a huge responsibility to be a fairy. Fairies had the important job of protecting nature and fixing serious problems. No fairy was ever allowed to use magic for trivial things or to abuse others.

    Become a Fairy Princess...

    ...who marries a Brownie Prince. That's what happens in the end of this book. Now a little bit about the beginning...the fairy team is called on to help break a curse trapping a fairy named Rose in a painting and the Brownie Prince Henry in a book. Following a wishing star and taking a ride on a unicorn leads the team to the Goddess Paramour (the fairy version of Venus, I guess) who has a Magic Pearl with which she can summon the Candle of Innamorata. Sounds complicated, doesn't it? Well...it's worth it. This is a lovely fairy tale drama great for young and old alike.

    Prince, Unicorn, Magic Castle, What's Not to Love

    Another enchanting fairy adventure awaits the reader in this tale of Henry, a brownie prince under a spell that keeps him confined to a book, and his love Rose, a fairy confined to a painting from the same spell. Moonflower leads the fairies on their mission to break the spell. In order to do this the fairies seek a wishing star, ride on a unicorn, and even visit the Goddess of Love. I think the combination of characters and events in this book has the power to enchant any reader fond of magical adventure. I recommend this for readers age 7-11.
