Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennifer Lehmann
When your best friend is your fairy godsister, strange things are bound to happen. Philippa Fisher and her parents have chosen the perfect vacation: a house in a small town surrounded by woods and walking paths. Philippa befriends a local girl, Robyn, who understands Philippa's loneliness and seems as open to the magical things around them as Philippa is, but Robyn's dad gets in the way of their friendship. Is it just over protection or something more sinister? Meanwhile, Philippa gets involved in her fairy godsister's new mission, but when Daisy is in danger, Philippa is not sure how to help! This sequel to Philippa Fisher's Fairy Godsister stands on its own well and can be understood and enjoyed without reading the first volume. However, more information about the contest Philippa had won and less rehashing of the friendship struggles she had would have been helpful. While the characters and cover may appeal to children below the intended age group, the lengthy exposition and darker aspects of the story make it appropriate for upper elementary readers. This will engage those looking for more mature fairy stories, or anyone looking for a fun but suspenseful fantasy. Reviewer: Jennifer Lehmann
School Library Journal
Gr 5–7—Ever since becoming friendly with a fairy named Daisy in Philippa's Fairy Godsister (Candlewick, 2008), 11-year-old Philippa continues to look for magic. When she wins a vacation to the place of her choice, she and her loving but eccentric parents can't decide where to go until an unusual butterfly lands on a place called Ravenleigh Woods, shown on the map as a forest with a river running through it. The butterfly is indeed a magical creature—a fairy with a message to deliver. The vacation is really a rescue mission, saving dreams and the family of the fairy Dream Maker. Philippa gains a friend, helps her learn to grieve for her mother, and discovers that saying goodbye is just "a step along a journey, not the end of it." Two narrative voices are used: one is of Daisy, a member of the fairy organization known as ATC (Above the Clouds), and the other, Philippa's. The voices are differentiated by typeface; they create mystery and tension and lend different points of view to the same action. Dreams, magic, loyalty, and friendship abound in this well-paced, engaging book. Though complementary to the first title, it can be read independent of it.—Maria B. Salvadore, formerly at Washington DC Public Library
Kirkus Reviews
In this somewhat darker follow-up to the fanciful Philippa Fisher's Fairy Godsister (2008), lonely Philippa, just shy of 12, is ensconced on a rainy cottage vacation with her lovable hippie parents and faced with some mature issues of grief and death. Missing her new best fairy friend Daisy, the prickly "godsister" of her former adventure, Philippa chooses her family's vacation to Ravenleigh Woods after a butterfly suggestively lands there on the map. The butterfly, of course, is her own dear fairy, trying to send discreet messages to Philippa to involve her in the life of a bookstore owner's daughter, Robyn, whose family, in happier times, used to live in the cottage the Fishers have rented for vacation. Robyn's mother has recently died, leaving her father rigid with sadness and so determined to protect his daughter from the natural grieving process that he "stunts" her by actually filtering her bad dreams with a "dream catcher." Kessler addresses hefty themes in this compelling story-nightmares, the scary dad-and allows the girls' friendship to assuage painful feelings of growing up. (Fantasy. 8-12)\

    Philippa Fisher and the Dream-Maker’s Daughter
    Has anyone ever wondered where dreams come from? Come along with Philippa Fisher, a normal kid with some interesting parents, and see how she discovers the secrets of Ravenleigh Woods. Along the way, she finds out about the Dream-Maker, and befriends a mysterious girl named Robyn. Liz Kessler, the author, has really outdone herself this time with the perfectly paced plot line, the relatable characters, and a little bit of magic! Just when everything seems okay, the plot takes a nail biting twist. I would definitely recommend this to all fantasy genre lovers. I can’t wait to read the next book!

    This book is really fasinating. It has many suprises placed in. I finished it in 4 days because it was so good. I would of rather read it slower so I could extend my time of reading the book. So please take my advise to read it so!!!
