Overview

The Candy Fairies have a mystery to solve in time for Berry’s birthday—which also happens to be Valentine’s Day!

Raina wants to make a very special birthday treat for Berry. She’s even asked Lyra, the unicorn who looks after the Fruit Chew Meadow, to grow a special flower for the surprise. But when Raina and Dash go to visit Lyra, they are in for a sour shock! All the flowers in the meadow are wilting, and Lyra’s sick! Her horn is dull and she can’t stand up. Something—or someone—is hurting the gentle unicorn and the meadow, but who? And what about Berry’s birthday?

All the Candy Fairies will have to work together if they are to solve this mystery, cure the meadow and Lyra, and make sure that Berry has the sweetest birthday ever!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heidi Hauser Green
If you are in the mood for something sweet, a light read that is a tasty treat to the senses, this is “sure as sugar” that you will be satisfied by the latest offering in Perelman’s candy-centric, fairy-centric series. It is the day before Valentine’s Day, and fairies Raina and Dash are especially excited because that is Berry’s birthday, too. After discussing what sort of special gift they might give to their friend, they decide to talk to the unicorn Lyra. But when they arrive at Lyra’s meadow, they find the flowers wilted and Lyra in a state of collapse. The fairies’ investigation turns up traces of salt, which is poisonous to unicorns and must have come from the troll Mogu. As Lyra’s once-rainbow horn dims to gray and eventually black, Princess Lolli comes to help. The girls pitch in to create a means of transporting their unicorn friend to the castle, figure out how to make sure Mogu will stay away from the meadow, and plan a celebration for Berry’s birthday/Valentine’s Day/Lyra’s return that is “so mint” it is just “sugartacular!” Fans of the series will enjoy this seasonal offering. Reviewer: Heidi Hauser Green; Ages 7 to 12.

Read an Excerpt

A Valentine’s Surprise

Supersweet Surprise


Raina the Gummy Fairy sprinkled handfuls of colorful flavor flakes into Gummy Lake. She smiled as the gummy fish swam over and gobbled up the food. Watching the fish eat made Raina’s tummy rumble. She had gotten up very early and had been working in Gummy Forest all morning. When she settled on a perch high up on a gummy tree, Raina opened her backpack. All the animals in the forest were fed, and now she could relax and eat her own lunch.

Raina had an important job in Sugar Valley. She took care of the gummy animals that lived in Gummy Forest. There were many types of gummy animals, from friendly bear cubs to playful bunnies. Raina was fair and kind to each of the animals—and they all loved her.

“Hi, Raina!” a voice called out.

Raina looked up to see Dash, a Mint Fairy, flying in circles above her head. The small, sweet fairy glided down to see her.

“I was hoping to find you here,” Dash said. “I need your help.”

Raina was always willing to help out any of her friends. She had a heart that was pure sugar. “What’s going on?” she asked.
