My girl's lover this series and it was memorable read in paperback as well as this repeat read on Kindle. This is a lovely children's story, with the age suggestion of about 8-12 years old. It is well written, and jam-packed full of excitement. The little fairies in the story are adorable, and I think children will appreciate the well-placed illustrations used along the way. The magical land Frayne creates has already been visited as this book is part of a series, so plenty more for children to get their teeth into if they enjoy this installment. A great fantasy fiction to encourage the use of imagination at such an important age. This will make book reports more fun and the ideas for writing the report fly off the page. Truly a great way to encourage kids to read.
I found this book to be very comprehensive for a children's story. There is a great deal of character development and lots of mystical creatures introduced to keep the reader interested. What I like most about this author is the creativity she uses in describing the far away land of Knownotten. I was happy to get lost there myself, so I can imagine it is a great story that children can easily pick up and enjoy. It would suit fantasy fans, and those that like books about magic and wonder.
I found "Topaz and the Green Fairies" to be a captivating and enchanting story. Pat Frayne's description will capture your imagination as the story takes you through Cottersdamp Island, Knownotten Kingdom, and Barren Island with such colorful characters as a Spotted Gray Matoose, a Shaggy Red Buckwetcher, King Kittle and so many more vividly described characters who share this adventure with Topaz and the Green Fairies. I loved this book! AJ Pettenger
Meeting Bozel and his family was a real treat. Pat drew me in without hesitation and the book was wonderful. Being a cat lover I also related to Topaz and the life that Pat gives him. Looking forward to Topaz and the Evil Wizard.
