Children's LiteratureJessie awakens before dawn with the sense that something is not right. She finds her grandmother also awake and also sensing that something is amiss. Jessie's grandmother is the former queen of the fairy world, who left that place for Jessie's grandfather. The pair, worried that something is wrong in the fairies' land, decides to travel there quickly to check that everything is all right. When her grandmother is called to the hospital due to a friend's emergency, Jessie decides to make the trip on her own. The news is not good. Outlanders are trying to break into the fairy world. Worse yet—when she returns to tell her grandmother, Jessie is trapped by Valda, the wicked leader of the Outlanders! Jessie must decide between saving her own world or the world of the fairies, and she must try to engage the help of their most powerful allies, the unicorns. It won't be easy, but it's her only chance to save both worlds! Although this book is number six in The Fairy Realm series, it reads well as a stand-alone novel. Readers are sure to be eager to read other books in the series and to continue to accompany Jessie on her adventures in both the human and fairy worlds. 2004, HarperCollins, Ages 8 to 12.
