The second book in Amanda Thrasher's mushroom patch series scores another goal! "A Fairy Match in the Mushroom Patch" is an entertaining story that portrays the young fairies, Lilly, Jack, Boris, Pearle, Ivy, and Rosie as being the best of friends who enjoy many lighthearted adventures together. Whether they are playing a game of kick a berry or rock climbing, their true friendship shines through. When the rainy season begins early, trouble strikes their beloved mushroom colony, and the elders and young fairies alike ban together to save their homes. These free-spirited friends work hard to stop the mushroom rot that is overtaking the mushrooms. In the end, the young fairies learn the value of working hard and sticking together to get an important job done, whether it is keeping their home intact or competing in a "Kick a Berry Match". This charming and imaginative story is timeless and cleverly written. Young children will relate to the many different fairy personalities and how they all hold special places on the fairy team. This story is fun and carefree but also shows the importance of teamwork.

I can't thank Amanda enough for writing this story. Pearle is characterized after my own daughter and her life. She was challenged every day but because of her friends and family support lived a full life. The lessons learned in this book teach everyone, not just children, that even though someone is different, they are human beings also and have feelings like everyone else. Even though someone is different, that individual has something to offer, whether it is their kind and gentle nature, or their knowledge, just being mischevous, or loving. I would recommend this book to any and everyone that loves people. I look excitedly to another book with all of the precious fairies of this series. Amanda, thank you. Beverly

Amanda's second installment of the Mushroom Patch series is as entertaining as the first if not more so. Not only do we meet are old friends but meet some new ones as well. It is especially touching to see the inclusion of a character in a children's book that is a little different from the rest. The description of the "magical chariot" is a touching point. Not enough is written or said about those less fortunate than others these days and it is nice to see this at a level where bright. growing minds can see this as okay. If you like her first 2 books, I can tell you that some of the things that Amanda has in store are even better. This is an author that is here to stay.

"A Fairy Match in the Mushroom Patch" by Amanda M. Thrasher is a wonderful sequel to her earlier book, "Mischief in the Mushroom Patch". Lilly, Boris and Jack have matured a bit, and have found a new friend, Pearle, who steals our hearts as she gives rides to her friends on her chariot wheelchair. This delightful story combines wonderful life-lessons of working together, helping each other, and playing together as the fairies go to their "class-schrooms", share "fairy-cress sandwiches", play "find a fairy", go "leaf rafting", act out "fairy-shrades" and ultimately learn the values of friendship and teamwork in their "fairy kick a berry"match! What a great way to entertain children, while stretching their imaginations. I hope we see more of these darling fairlings! Sherrill S.
