The Crystal Palace III: The Fairy War
Ever wish you were someone else? Katie falls in love with a handsome fairy boy, Colin, and wants to be a fairy herself. In this third book of the Crystal Palace trilogy, three human girls (Karina, Nicole, and Katie) return to Fairyland to visit their fairy folk friends and to see the effect of the civil rights reforms they had earlier mediated for the ogres and trolls, previously second class citizens in Fairyland.
The Sorcerer gives Katie beautiful fairy wings, but he is jealous of the human girls' growing influence on the king and plans to humiliate them. His scheme is interrupted when insects (huge to the fairies) attack Fairyland.
Urged on by their evil tarantula leader, swarms of enormous, angry insects and spiders descend upon the fairy folk. Their goal: to destroy Fairyland, before turning their sights on the human world.
A story of envy and forgiveness, courage and cooperation, friendship and caring, The Crystal Palace III: The Fairy War demonstrates the power of respect for others and working together toward a common goal.
Exciting and fanciful- a child's version of Fairyland through the artistry of Karina, the eleven-year-old granddaughter of author Grammy Hauser.

This is a story full of surprises and excitement in a world of fairies and human friends. The third in the series and just as captivating as the first two. Lynette Harrison
The Crystal Palace is a delightful fairy book with so many interesting social and political happenings that make this book special. It weaves together such themes as being true to yourself, working together toward a common cause, tolerance of differences, bullying, and equality. This very creative Grammy put her teaching background to good use.
You want this book I recommend it to all the moms I know. My girls love it so much I read a chapter every night I practically have it memorized! It will make a great present!
