The Fairy Bell Sisters
February 5, 2014
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.
