Paddy the Puppy by Lily Small -- ADVISABLE
It's Paddy the Puppy's birthday, and he's so excited he's having trouble performing his everyday fairy puppy task of spreading pollen from flower to flower. In order to burn off a little energy while still being productive, he travels to another field to work, but his mischievousness gets him in trouble a few times along the way. Good thing Paddy is as good at making friends as he is at causing problems.
This is a very sweet, innocent chapter book filled with fairy animals, happy resolutions, and friendship. The chapters are a tad long for the age level, and the illustrations are less frequent than some children may prefer, but the larger font, entertaining topic, and G rating work well for young readers. While this is the third in the series, it stands alone nicely.
