She also enjoys watching a variety of movies and sports. Her favorite superhero is her husband, with Silver Surfer coming in a close second. She loves many of the same things the fairies love, including live oak trees, mockingbirds, weathered terra-cotta, butterflies, bees, and cypress knees. In the fairy game of "If I were a jelly bean, what flavor would I be?" she would be green apple. J.H. Sweet lives with her husband in South Texas and has a degree in English from Texas State University.

Holly Sierra's illustrations are visually enchanting with particular attention to decorative, mystical, and multicultural themes.

    Great Fairy Tale with a Great Message

    I believe we need more of this type of book, not only to help our children through this crazy world but also, to lend a message of positive hope to the world in general. I have never outgrown my children's book, and I am a granny five times over. I recently discovered this book series and am delighted and amazed by the positive messages and gentle lessons. In Periwinkle and the Cave of Courage, the young girls/fairies have to work not only with each other, but with a variety of other beings, all with different personalities and views. Although Periwinkle leads the adventure, each of the other characters contributes to the success of their mission-to recharge the Cave of Courage. The team members learn respect for one another and help each other greatly. This is a beautiful fairy tale and it has a wonderful message for young and old alike.
