Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
Lila is a young fairy with purple hair who longs to be able to go to Silverlake Fairy School. Lila is an orphan, however, and has been raised by Cook, so Lila is regarded by some as being a kitchen fairy and not worthy of attending the special school. Princess Bee Balm is studying for the test to enter the school, but she is jealous of Lila and decides that Lila will not be able to study with her. Lila decides to fly up by the library window and listen in on the lessons given to Princess Bee Balm. Lila learns about geography, levitation using a wand, making a small breeze, and how to make a cloud. She accidentally falls from her hiding place, but is rescued by a mysterious unicorn. The King and Queen are impressed that she has her own unicorn and decide that she should be able to take the test to enter the school. She passes the test in spite of some shenanigans that Princess Bee Balm tries in order to prevent Lila from being successful. The story ends with Lila looking forward to going to the school, and then a chapter is included from the next book to entice the reader to read more in this "Silverlake Fairy School" series. There are some fullhpage ink illustrations throughout the book. Readers will enjoy the magic and adventure of this enterprising character. This is a good chapter book for young readers before they are ready to read about Harry Potter. Reviewer: Vicki Foote

My 7 year old daughter and I started reading this book yesterday. We finished it in less than two days. The words are just challenging enough to expand her vocabulary, but not so much to discourage her. The story is charming and had a bit Harry Potter feel to it. If all of the books are as good as this first one, we will be enjoying this series immensely.
