I also think this would be an excellent book for kids who are ready to take the next step to bigger chapter books. The language, while beautiful, is easy to read and each chapter is interesting and fast paced. The content is engaging and the character goes through some emotional development that may be age appropriate for the 7 - 9 y.o. set.
I hope there will be sequels to this book.
"Flory was a night fairy." Was, I'm afraid. Like others of her kind she was perfectly content to flit about at night. Unfortunately Flory was born with lovely luminous wings so pretty that one night a bat crunches them by mistake, and Flory finds herself wingless. Alone and hurt in a strange garden, she becomes determined to be a day fairy and sets about taking care of herself. She befriends a hungry squirrel and the two help one another out. She makes herself a home in a birdhouse In the midst of all of this, however, she still longs to fly again. One day she sees a hummingbird and becomes determined to tame and ride it.Read more ›
The illustrations are charming and really add to the story - they strike just the right note of whimsy. I would recommend this to anyone, no matter what their age. It took me back to when I was a kid and my favorite book was Wind in the Willows. Don't miss this one.
1. Don't let things that we cannot control affect who we are. Flory tries to be something she is not after losing her wings. Her journey helps her to open her eyes about judging others, but she tried way too hard to be something that she was not. How many people(including ourselves) have fallen prey to this mindset?
2. Don't judge a book by its cover. As I write this I chuckle to myself realizing that is exactly what I did with this book. The larger meaning is that we are so quick to judge and stereotype and not give people a chance without ever giving them an opportunity to express or display who they really are. Working at a middle school I see this phenomenon all the time. How do we stop people from juding so quickly? I wish I had an answer, but it is something we are all guilty of at some point in our lives.
3. What goes around comes around......the whole full circle concept. I completed this book and felt like I needed to watch the Lion King scene
We can only control our own actions. If we live life the way it should be lived, then we will find ourselves right back where we need to be only with more knowledge and insight to live better.
I went deep with this book designed for younger ages. It is a good read. I rather found myself doing more reflection on my own life from this book than any self help book. Check it out and see what you learn.

Review is by my 10 year old daughter:
I loved this book but I think the night fairy was too demanding, too crule and mean. She wasn't a bully but she wasn't a softy. Read more
