The story a masterpiece for Bees the main conflict was, about a fairy name Bees who loves to paint in her studio. One day Bees figured that she would make a portrait for tinker bell since she fixed her best Palette knife she ever had. That day tinker bell showed everyone her new portrait. Then all of the other fairies wanted one just like tinker bell's, they asked tinker bell what was the occasion of Bees making her a panting tinker bell said oh not a thing it was a surprise to me because I just fixed her best palette knife she ever had and she said she wanted to give me something in return. Of me doing that for her so she made me a portrait of myself to hang up in my room since I needed some spices in my room.'' I had asked her for one before and she never had the time to make me one. The next day Bees got a knock on her door it was Dulice the fairy most known for his poppy puff rolls. Dulice asked Bees did she want any of his famous poppy puff rolls. Bees said "of course thank you a lot" then Bees said "what can". Before she got to finish her sentence Dulice said oh yeah can paint a picture of me and my rolls. Bees was pleased to make Dulice a picture it would be the first time that Bess painted a picture with a fairy holding something in their hands. Then she got another knock on her door with roses, then another, another, and another everybody wanted her to paint a picture of them. It was over 100 fairies who Bees had to paint a portrait of. She was so tried every time she went some were and some one help her out Bees always say what can I so they always say a picture would be good before she got to finish talking. After Bees finished 15 portraits some of the fairies were complaining about how their wing are not the right size, their face does not look right, and they need a do over.Read more ›

In my opinion the best Disney Fairies books have the conflict growing out of the fairy "talents". In this book Bess' gift for painting is both a blessing and a curse.

I was especially pleased to see the connection Bess (the heroine) and Vidia (the "outcast") made. I would love to see more of this in later books. I would not like to see Vidia turned into a target for unthinking hatred.

Bess the artist and Vidia the speed addict both understand that the "group" (the "crowd", the "herd", the "community") can sometimes act REALLY SILLY and that the expression of personal feelings can sometimes only be understood by individuals.

This deceptively simple story actually teaches a very valuable lesson.

This story takes place in Pixie Hollow and follows Bess, Tink, Rosetta, Vidia, Silvermist, Quill,and Fawn. The story is about when Bess makes Tink a portrait of her and when everyone sees how good it is they want one too. Bess finds out that she is almost out of paint and needed to get some more. when she goes to find some paint she runs into trouble. She finds the paint she needs but makes a mess of herself in the process. When she tries to fix herself the water fairies come to her rescue. Bess finally gets back home and strats painting for all her friends. I thouht this book was a bit boring because it did not have alot of aicton.

We own all of this series! Started reading them when my daughter was 4 (she just turned 5 now), and they are age appropriate. Not too scary and always a happy ending. One book only takes us about 4-5 nights worth of reading together. The longer ones are good too "Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg" and "Fairy Haven and the Quest for the Wand", but they are a little bit scarrier than the short books (more appropriate for ages 5-7 I would think).

A Masterpiece for Bess by Lara Berger is a geat book about Bess as she breaks a record. SHe is a well liked artists and the never fairies and sparrowmen are just asking for one portait of themselves. Poor Bess has almost all the fairies asking for a potrait of themselves. I gave this book 3 stars because it didn't have as much adventure as Beck Beyond the sea. ~stardust

I thought this really captured the artist in me. I don't know if I would say Bess is my favorite fairy thou but I see a lot of myself in her she's messy, and likes to paint when wants to. I read this fairly quickly it is somewhere in the mid range for a chapter book not too easy and not to hard but definitely an enjoyable story
