Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In this sequel to Philippa Fisher’s Fairy Godsister (2008) and Philippa Fisher and the Dream-Maker’s Daughter (2009), Philippa and her family return to Ravenleigh. Philippa recites a spell carved into a mysterious circle of rocks and finds herself transported to ATC (Above the Clouds), where she reconnects with her fairy godsister Daisy. Sent to locate a missing fairy, the two hope her return will preserve the links between the human and fairy worlds and prevent catastrophic harm to the earth. Themes of friendship and loyalty will appeal to young readers, as will the implausible but satisfying ending. Grades 4-6. --Kay Weisman

We loved The Emily Windsnap series so we gave Philippa a try. This series is just as reader friendly and fun as The Emily Windsnap series (which if you haven't read yet, then you are missing out). They make my daughter want to read more which is a sure sign that you have a good book. I read them with her and as a parent that reading with her daughter I looked forward to reading time as much as she did.

I loved the book "Philippa Fisher and the Fairies Promise". It was a little sad but very, very exciting and thrilling to me. I loved this book and rate this book five stars because I love all the Emily Windsnap books I have read so far in the series, and the Philippa Fisher books are by the same author. The book is about Philippa Fisher going on a winter vacation with her parents to see her friend, Robyn, but along with accidentally going to ATC, Above The Clouds, with her fairy godsister, Daisy, Philippa and Daisy have to go on an assignment from ATC to bring back a twelve year old boy named Tommy, and a stone fairy named Amber before midnight on new years eve because that's when the new moon raises, otherwise their world as they know it won't exist if they fail their task to retrieve the stone fairy. So they must act fast to succeed!

When I first read that Philippa was going to Above the Clouds in this book I thought maybe Fairy Godmother training might of been her reward for saving her best friend Daisy in the second book of the trilogy. Turn out to be a even better story for the most part. I read the book in a single day.

Hundred of years ago Fairies and humans were best friends. Over time humans turn away from magic and focus on science (forgetting that Fairies were more than fairy tales.) Now with all of fairy kind threatened Head Command of Above the Cloud sets up a series of tests to find out how strong the friendship between Daisy and Philippa is. Tests that results in Philippa going to Above The Clouds headquarters and pretending to be a fairy so she isn't discovered as a human. If the tests are concluded to the praise of the high command the two two will be given an assignment together that could be the only way to keep the link between their worlds from closing forever. All our favorite characters from the first two books are brought fact in this thrilling tale of how magical friend ship truly is.

The only thing I didn't like about the book was around the ending. I had hope for Philippa to be given a chance to become a Fairy Godmother herself rather than Daisy's choice to help Amber. As you'll read for yourself Daisy's future fate is sort of left unanswered. Reader isn't 100% sure where she'll end up.

My mom got the 1st book of the series for me from the library and I thought I wouldn't like it but I started to read it and it was SUCH A PAGE TURNER!!!!!! These were the best books I have ever read!! I got the 2nd one and loved the new adventure and loved how they added a new character Robyn but kept the old characters like Daisy from the first book! I got a Kindle Fire for the holidays and got the 3rd book on my Kindle Fire. I just finished it and I loved how they added the new characters like Tommy and Amber! I LOVED the twists and turns through out the story!! READ THESE BOOKS!!!!!!!!

A dash of adventure for the young reader is opened up here with Liz Kessler's brilliant and captivating writing style once again. Wonderf when they will start producing movies from these? Could easily go that way - was like when I read the Hunger Games a few years back, it made sense.

Liz Kessler books are a sure hit for the young, confident, reader. We (my familty) have many of her books, and will keep them coming.

What wonderful literature.
