This is a delightful children's book. The illustrations are large, vivid and colourful. They show that whimsical fairy world. I loved that there were both male and female fairies. The messages in the book range from helping your friends to being strong and true in your belief, it is okay to be different and like different things. This is a cute story to read aloud to young children, especially those who love fairies and magic. I can see this being read to Kindergarten children and talking about Leona and her friends liking different things but still being friends. A great addition to a family and class library. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley.
Leona the fairy lives in a kettle in the forest. She loves her home - it's perfect for her - though the other fairies don't understand why she'd want to live in something that's so noisy when it rains. But Leona is undeterred, loving her life and her home, and as a storm hits her fellow fairies come to realise the value in being different.
Tait has created a wonderful wee story for little ones, that is fun to read aloud, and with a really magical sense of fun in the illustrations (quite a different style to many kids' books, but lovely). There are also some really nice and healthy themes bubbling away underneath.
Great stuff all around.
Gorgeous illustrations and adorable story! Great as a gift for adults or children. Highly recommend this beautiful book about fairies. Hope there are other books using these same characters in the future!
