This book was a bit slow in the very begining but once you start you cant stop! A very good book for what it cost!

I love this book which I read in no time - couldn't put it down. It reminded me of The Borrowers which I read as a kid and reread to my granddaughter. This wonderful fantasy of tiny fairies in the mantel and whole races of wood fairies in the antique mall makes for great adventure. I especially love Soren Maple, the leader of the fairies who look like sticks. Oh, for drawings or pictures. Matilda is the heroine of the tale who starts her babysitting career with the horrible Gerald. Boy, does this remind me of my own babysitting mishaps. Matilda is such a lovable character with all the fallacies of an adolescent but who steadfastly protects her charges through a war and on to a new home. I hope a sequel is in the works

I knew she was a fairy because it had it in the title. Matiltda was a brave fairy. Her mantle(her home) was taken away to an antuic store. It was very interesting how she defended her self with fire.I think this was the best book i read! It is great for a free book. I thought it was going to be boring because all the athor books the author wrote cost money. You should get the book your self. Trust me it's a great book.

A very well-written free 200 page book of the world from a fairy's point of view. Great little adventure tale. To the inquiry, the 'butterfly' on her finger in front of her eye has two legs and is wearing a dress.

A Fairy's Guide to Disaster (An Away From Whipplethorn Book 1) by [Hartoin, A.W.]Matilda Whipplethorn has been asked to take on a big challenge...babysit Gerald, the fairy nobody likes. As she tries to talk her way out of it, her mother shows her a list of everything that could go wrong and how to handle it. Unfortunately, the list does not include people coming into Whipplethorn Manor and taking her home with her, Gerald and her sister Iris included. The mantel that is taken has been her home for as long as she can remember, now these humans are taking it to an antique mall. Here it is purchased and sent to a new home. Matilda is not sure what to do as one disaster follows another. This is a fun and very well-written book with good character development. I have always enjoyed books about fairies and I now have a new one that will stay with me for a while. I enjoyed watching how Matilda became more brave throughout the book and the children were able to realize that each one had redeeming qualities which helped them overlook the other, less-likable traits. I truly enjoyed this book.

This is such an amazing story. My child is hard of hearing and it's so awesome to be able to read a story about a character with the same disability. Matilda over comes so many things with the help of friends and family. Showing that nothing should hold you back. It's a great story with an amazing theme. We can't wait to read more of her adventures.

Already bought the second in the series - can't wait to go back to that world of 'fairy tales'.
