I feel this book is destined to be a children's classic because ofauthor, Amanda Thrasher's substantial gift for resolving any situationwith courage and kindness. When their boundless sense of adventure lands Lilly and Boris in big trouble, it becomes a lesson for us all in therewards of selfless valor. Subsequently, their very real fear of theconsequences of their mischief, by their own attitudes of acceptingresponsibility, is transformed into a magical period in their young lives they will remember fondly always.
Having worked in a rock quarry inmy younger days, I am impressed with Ms. Thrasher's detail in describing the process of producing the fairy dust. I wonder if what I helpedproduce back then actually sparkled and I just never took time to notice it. I eagerly look forward to reading the next in the series ofadventures in the mushroom patch! - John Beavin
From the Author
I am writer by heart and author second to that. I never once set out tobe an author, and yet here I am. I realized I loved creative writingwhen I was a child, and have been writing ever since. My mother was illand she made a request of me that I couldn't deny. She said, "Share your stories with your children and send them in, if only for me." She loved fairies and so I wrote her a new 'fairy' tale, one I think she wouldhave enjoyed. She never saw it in print, though she did read the firstseven chapters of "Mischief in the Mushroom Patch." I told her the restof the story and wrote it accordingly.
My intent with theMischief series was to bring back the love of fairy tales. However, mystories do not have the gore or scary characters as in the traditionalstories. Just sweet, lovely characters, that have many adventures andlearn gentle life lessons along the way. My characters are sweet, attimes funny, and endearing. Fairies, not just for girls any more. Lilly, Boris, and Jack, are back!
I hope that you enjoy my stories.

In Mischief in the Mushroom Patch, Boris and Lilly find themselves in a world of trouble as they venture out of the mushroom patch against fairy rules. When children misbehave they must face the consequences and that's exactly what happens to Boris and Lilly. Mademoiselle Francesca sentences the two mischievous fairlings to the dusting factory where they will assist the dust fairies.
During their tenure, Boris and Lilly learn the importance of following rules and the hastiness of waste. In addition to a valuable lesson learned, the small fairlings are enamored with the production of fairy dust and its uses.
Amanda M. Thrasher makes Mischief in the Mushroom Patch easy to read for even the smallest of children but keeps the interest of even the eldest. I found these fairies, although, amusingly mischievous, to be the most polite of children I've ever read about. .
Though mischievous, Lilly and Boris are good hearted, and their punishment turns into a wonderful learning experience. This delightful book is not only fun to read, but it is a story that teaches the value of friendship, responsibility, and learning from our mistakes. My daughter, who is enchanted by magical books, loved this book and is excited about reading the second book in Ms. Thrasher's series, "A Fairy Match in the Mushroom Patch".
Having worked in a rock quarry in my younger days, I am impressed with Ms. Thrasher's detail in describing the process of producing the fairy dust. I wonder if what I helped produce back then actually sparkled and I just never took time to notice it. I eagerly look forward to reading the next in the series of adventures in the mushroom patch!
