New York Times bestselling author Sophie Kinsella makes her series debut for young readers with FAIRY MOM AND ME (Delacorte Press Books for Young Readers / on sale noq / Ages 7–10), the charming illustrated adventures of a mother-daughter fairy duo!
Ella Brook can’t wait to grow up, because one day she will become a fairy and have her own sparkly wings and a teacher on Fairy Tube, just like her mom! Until then, Ella has to learn by watching her mom in action. But sometimes spells go wrong, and Ella’s mom can never seem to remember the right magic codes on her Computawand. A lot of the time, it’s up to Ella to come to the rescue. Does she have what it takes to be a fairy one day? Or will there be more glitches than glitter?
FAIRY MOM AND ME is filled with ultimate wish-fulfillment, tech-savvy humor, and modern flair. Fans of Sophie Kinsella’s sparkling humor will love her first-ever series for young readers! Complete with black-and-white illustrations throughout and discussion questions and family activities in the back, this is the perfect sharable story for kids and parents.
We absolutely adored Ella and her mom! There are four short stories in this volume, and the kids kept begging me to read the next spell. They are now yelling Fixeridoo and Bigeridoo around the house (trying to clean their messes and grow taller). Also, they’re both convinced that I’m a fairy now too. Which – well, I’m not going to correct them. When I asked Miss Pond if she would give this book five stars, she replied, “No. I want to give it all the stars! But can you read it again first?”
