Fliess, Sue A Fairy Friend, illustrated by Claire Keane. PICTURE BOOK. Henry Holt (Macmillan), 2016. $17.
Want to have a fairy for a friend? Follow the advice in this rhyming picture book and you may find a friend of your very own. Of course, like any friend, you have to say good-bye when she is ready to go.
Fliess builds upon the current trend for building a fairy garden or village at home (check pinterest). The illustrations really star in this picture book. The rhyme scheme sometimes falls short, put it is still a great inspiration for a summer afternoon project for a group of girls and probably their mothers!
