Review by AbigailAdams26
The fairy Faith, whose midwinter and midsummer adventures were chronicled in Daniela Drescher's <u>Little Fairy's Christmas</u> and <u>Little Fairy Can't Sleep</u>, returns in this third adventure, as she searches for an appropriate dress for Queen Wren's Meadow Party. Her friends Mole, Hedgehog and Field Mouse help her search, bringing her flowers, berries, mushrooms and nuts, but nothing feels just right. Confiding her longing for a dress as bright as the moon, as soft as a butterfly's wings, and as sparkly as the stars to the moon one night, the Little Fairy's fondest wish is granted...Published originally as <u>Die kleine Elfe und das Wiesenfestkleid</u> ("The Little Fairy and the Meadow Festival Dress"), this sweet little picture-book is as engaging as its predecessors. The artwork is lovely, capturing the plump charm of Faith's animal friends, whose desire to help is so endearing, and Faith's own delicate beauty as well. My favorite scene was the one in which Faith sits on a little hill at night, outlined by the moon behind her, although every page was beautiful. As always, Drescher's palette is appealing, from the deep blues of her nighttime scenes, to the softer pinks and greens of her days. Recommended to young children who enjoy stories of fairies, as well as to anyone who appreciates Drescher's artwork.
