Opinion

From Library Staff

A sweet story about a fairy who suffers an accident leading to broken wings, and who has to learn how to get by in nature without flying. It’s not easy! But it turns out that it’s not all bad, either.

This endearing jewel of a book tells of a fairy who breaks her wings - but learns a lot from the experience. The author conveys touching messages about recovering from misfortune and making friends.

This is a very well-written book that is suitable for children from 6+. It has a strong emotional development theme with other subthemes such as friendship and problem-solving. Very engaging. This is a personal favorite of ours!

What would happen to a fairy if she lost her wings and could no longer fly? Flory, a young night fairy no taller than an acorn and still becoming accustomed to her wings — wings as beautiful as those of a luna moth — is about to find out. What she discovers is that the world is very big and very dangerous. But Flory is fierce and willing to do whatever it takes to survive. If that means telling others what to do — like Skuggle, a squirrel ruled by his stomach — so be it. Not every creature, however, is as willing
to bend to Flory’s demands.
