Fairy Bad Day

Title: Fairy Bad Day
Author: Amanda Ashby
Series: N/A
Recommended for: Ages 12 and up
Pages: 352
Call Number/Link:  TEEN FICTION ASHBY

Synopsis: While most students at Burtonwood Academy get to kill demons and goblins, fifteen-year-old Emma gets to rid the world of little annoying fairies with glittery wings and a hipster fashion sense. She was destined to be a dragon slayer, but cute and charming Curtis stole her spot. Then she sees a giant killer fairy and it’s invisible to everyone but her! If Emma has any chance of stopping this evil fairy, she’s going to need help. Unfortunately, the only person who can help is Curtis. And now, not only has he stolen her dragon-slayer spot, but maybe her heart as well! Why does she think it’s going to be a fairy bad day?

Comments: A YA paranormal with a female heroine, dragons, and fairies? Sounds fun. It’s a great quick read for anyone looking for light magic book. Don’t expect a super unique setup, there is a boarding school for those that can see magical creatures, the main character, Emma, is mad at a cute boy who “stole” her dragon slaying spot, and the mysterious elements are pretty easy to figure out. There is a little bit of romance, that culminates in some kissing. The real fun of this book is how Emma interacts with the fairies and figures out how to combat them with candy and household items.

Plant a seed to watch it grow. Press on the cloud to make it rain. Jiggle the book to scatter the seeds. Interactive text teaches very young children how flowers sprout and mature. Contains watercolor depictions of a flower in various stages of growth” – – provided by publisher.

 

Comments:

Cute gardening book for young children.  Interactive, like the author’s book Tap the Magic Tree.

Great for preschool storytimes with gardening or spring theme.  Could also use for a bee or butterfly storytime.  It could also work for Toddler Time if the children in attendance skew a little older and wouldn’t be too confused by the interactive aspect of the book.

Would work well for one-on-one reading to toddlers and up.
