About This Book
Gorgeous Illustrated Hardcover of an Action-Packed Fairy Tale!
Flory is a night fairy, but when she loses her wings in a run-in with a bat, she has to learn to survive during the daytime, among the hungry creatures in the Giantess's garden! She's no bigger than an acorn; squirrels, spiders, and birds can all be threats to her, and they certainly don't look at the world the same way she does. Flory quickly learns that kindness, compassion, generosity, and bravery can help her make much-needed friends and even thrive in her unfamiliar new world.
Even readers who aren't fairy lovers will delight in this magical, beautifully written story that has plenty of danger and adventure! With short chapters, it works equally well as a read-aloud or for independent reading. Angela Barrett's gorgeous full-color watercolor illustrations show just how tiny Flory is compared to the other creatures in the garden, and they will enchant readers of all ages.
