(Review by Zoe, aged 6.) It's about a fairy who loses her wings. She grew up as a Night Fairy but she decides to be a Day Fairy. She thought that humans are giants. She's bossy and she makes friends with a spider and other creatures around the garden that she settles in with. She tries to boss them around and get them to do what she wants. I thought it was really good. ( )

When a young night fairy has her wings destroyed by a bat, she decides to become a day fairy. As she tries to adapt to living flightless in a garden, the little fairy makes new friends and discovers new things about herself and the world. This was a cute little children's story. I was expecting more though, I think I have been spoiled by some of the wonderful juvenile/middle school novels I have read lately (most notably those written by Kate DiCamillo). This was nice little story that would be a good read aloud for a young girl. The illustrations are beautiful, but the story didn't move me. ( )

An absolute gem of a book! For all parents out there who have girls obsessed with fairies, this book is a must read. For those of you who have young ones that haven't entered the fairy obsession stage yet, I suggest you snatch this up now. Flory is such a different type of fairy, such a strong and positive role model. I truly wish that this book had been around when I was younger.

Flory, our heroine, is a night fairy that looses her wings at the beginning of the story. Forced to live in a human or "giant" garden, Flory must learn to fend for herself. She learns to survive by making a home in a bird house, befriending the various gigantic animals around her, and by just being brave. Flory definitely has moxie! She is not afraid to take on spiders, or any other creatures larger than her. Young girls will find a lot to love in this spitfire of a fairy. This story is gorgeously written and packs quite a punch in the action department without being too scary. I see this as a bedtime story that will have the recipient hanging on every word, and probably dreaming about it as well.

My absolute favorite part of the book would have to be the illustrations. It is no surprise that the writing is beautiful, but it is truly the illustrations that push the story over into something that will stick with you long after you finish it. Elegant and sumptuous, the pictures in this book really show young readers what Flory's world is like. From images of her meeting with a squirrel five times her size, to soft and lovely images of her creating her own clothes, the illustrations really pull the story together. At 26 years old I didn't think I could fall in love with picture books anymore. The Night Fairy has definitely proven me wrong.

I highly recommend this book to all readers, young and old alike! Heaven knows that we are always looking for strong and positive role models for our young girls. I think that is what you will find in Flory if you give The Night Fairy a chance. Whether read as a bedtime story, or devoured by an older reader in small pieces, this book is sure to draw you in. To really sum it up, it's simply pure magic in the form of words and pictures. ( )

This is a short, fun read, but not for everyone. It's pure fairy, as in the kind of fairy who lives in the little fairy gardens people put in their yards.

Flory is a night fairy who is mistakenly bitten by a young bat. Her wings are damaged, so she can't fly. She makes her home in a vacant birdhouse. She pushes out the twigs and makes it cozy, with leaf hammocks and such. She decides that she is going to change to a day fairy because she doesn't want to encounter anymore bats. She befriends a squirrel who reluctantly helps her get seeds from the bird feeder. Apparently, squirrels are always hungry. She takes a liking to a hummingbird, and tries to convince it to be her servant in exchange for freeing it from a spider web. The hummingbird declines, but Flory decides to help it anyway.

It's a cute story describing your backyard from a tiny insect-sized perspective. It would make a great read-aloud for younger children, especially ones itching to build their own fairy garden. ( )
