The Fairy Bell Sisters


I have an amazing book about snow that I've been meaning to share for a month (hello book loving publishers? hi!!! it's me, Melissa! if you give me a book to review, it will be reviewed and photographed oh so lovingly, but it will take me awhile), and I'm gonna try and get it up for this wkend (b/c I feel so guilty for not giving my blog the attention it deserves lately).

But..........I have PINK on the brain, and VALENTINES on the brain, and I just heard the call of this book that Julia read last weekend at her grandma's house, and I could. not. say. no. (that period between words is a silly blogger thing, and sorry, but it serves its purpose in conveying How Terribly Serious you are about things.)

Julia has read another of these 'Fairy Bell Sisters' series books by Margaret McNamara and Julia Denos (nice name!). These books are all about the adventures of Tinker Bell's sisters. How cute is that? They are so darn cute. They are so pastel. And she likes these so much better than the 'Rainbow Fairy' series, which she doesn't care for at all, sorry Rainbow fairies.

She just read 'Clara and the Magical Charms', which is PERFECT for Valentine's Day, as the plot centers around a colony of gnomes who are visiting for the Valentine's Games. I can't tell you how darling this story is! The fairies practice their charms. They drink hot chocolate off of toadstool tables. THEY SAVE A BABY DOLPHIN. Short, easy-to-read chapters, with darling darling art, these books are really PRECIOUS for the 5-8 year old set.

('precious' is even cuter and sweeter than my standard high praise word 'delightful', fyi)

Go! Go get this one for Valentine's Day!! Better for the teeth than chocolate! Or get some chocolate to go with it anyway, because I truly believe that we should rename Valentine's Day to 'Chocolate & Pink Day' and be done with it.

  1. I'm so glad you posted about this!! I've been thinking that Miss C. needs a new book series to sink her teeth into and I've been dreading buying into one of those girlie series for fear of having to read really annoying stories. So many of them are just terrible! Or is that just me??? We'll be checking this one out! xoxo

  2. Oh this looks like a promising book! I would love love love to read it. Just because I am curious really and because I am looking for books my girl would like when she grows up. Is 7 years in advance too early? (no, right?)

    1. When J was a baby/toddler, I was already keeping an eye towards books I knew I'd want to have for her when she was a bigger kid!!! Never too early!! :)

    1. now what I didn't mention, which Danzel touches on in her comment, is that these are kinda the only girly books J will read -- she prefers action-y, funny, adventure books, preferably with dragons :)

  4. Aww, I checked out the first Fairy Bell Sisters book for Big Sis, but it was returned unread. She just didn't care. :( Perhaps I'll try again when Little Sis is reading on her own. Right now, she wants me to read Junie B. and books about Amelia Earhart.
