The Night Fairy Paperback

Illustrated by Angela Barrett

4 out of 5 (1 rating)


What would happen to a fairy if she lost her wings and could no longer fly?

Flory, a young night fairy still getting used to her wings, is about to find out.

What she discovers is that the world is very big and very dangerous, but Flory is fierce and willing to do whatever it takes to survive.

If that means telling others what to do, so be it. Flory soon finds, though, that not every creature is willing to bend to her demands.

In this exhilarating adventure, Newbery Medalist Laura Amy Schlitz and renowned miniaturist Angela Barrett have created a thoroughly original fairy who is a true force of nature.

This title features luminous full-colour illustrations from Angela Barrett.

This is a new classic from Newbery Award Winner Laura Amy Schlitz.

Review by

My first thought when starting this books was that it is meant to be read aloud. It would make a great multiple part story for any child with a touch of magic. I also loved that fairies aren't portrayed as sweet, kind, and gentle. We see how Flory grows and changes, there is a message there but it is subtle and secondary to the story.
