This story opens up your imagination when faced with a different view of reality. It's a very whimsical storyline that is light and easy to read and easy to follow. I could feel the very youthfulness of the main character! I totally loved the respect given to her parents, as well as the open mindedness her parents gave her in return. A sweet and enjoyable short story!

This is such a lovely, magical book that will appeal to fantasy fans of any age – but is primarily aimed at young girls. When I was a young girl, one of my favourite poems ended “on every leaf of every tree, a fairy sat and smiled at me”. I would have so much loved to have seen fairies, so can fully understand Cassie’s joy when she finds a set of glasses that enable her to see myriads of fairies, all around her, going about their everyday business. Of course, saying you can see fairies will usually lead to people thinking you are crazy. So, Cassie is extremely fortunate in that her best friend, Daisy, a girl from school, Bianca and (most importantly of all) her parents are all willing to believe her, or at least willing not to dismiss her claims out of hand. The book also deals with the important issues of Stranger-Danger and bullying. Because her parents believe her, Cassie is happy to agree not to go anywhere with the fairies, without first getting her parents’ permission. Had they not accepted that Cassie believed she was seeing fairies, it would have been much more likely that she would hide everything from them, and perhaps be drawn into danger (lesson for parents!). Bianca is bullied because of her itchy skin, but in Cassie she finds a friend, and a reason for her malady. Additionally, there is some science thrown in about the primary colours for paint and light, and how they are perceived through our eyes. So, an educational fantasy book. The only problem with this book, is that it ends all too soon. Fortunately, there are another nine books in this series, each with a different child, a different way of perceiving fairies and a different bit of science.
