A Fairy’s gift (The Never Girls Series: Special Edition) by Kiki Thorpe –ADVISABLE

Thorpe, Kiki A Fairy’s gift (The Never Girls Series: Special Edition) 203 pgs. Random House, 2015. $14.99 Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G Violence: G
The Nevergirls; Mia, Kate, Lainey, and Gabby are excited to spend more time in Neverland together over the Christmas Break. But something is wrong in Neverland, the fairies are losing their powers and the home tree is dying. This is the worst trouble the girls have had to face and its all because children around the world are losing their belief in fairies. Worst of all it looks like Mia might be too.
This was another fun and wholesome read in this series. Its actually quite grown on me as its really adorable without being sickly sugary sweet (Like the Candy fairies series, ugh!!). This special edition was quite long and may be a challenge for the typical younger readers of this series. I sort of don’t get how the ending played out, but I don’t think students will mind a bit. This series always makes me glad I didn’t have an annoying younger sister. The illustrations are darling.
