5.0 out of 5 stars THREE FAIRY Stories under ONE COVER 16 Feb 2009
from the 'Usborne Young Reading' series of books, which combines good stories with easy reading text.

The book is split into three good sized chapter stories:-

Chapter 1 - The tooth fairy - pages 3 -17
Chapter 2 - The forgetful fairy - pages 18 - 34
Chapter 3 - Fairy in a flap - pages 35 - 47

From the back cover:-

'Crystal, Lily and Poppy are three fairies in a flap. With stolen wands, flying lessons and Fairy Balls, there's never a dull moment.
Come to Fairyland and join in the magical fun.'

Durable, eye-catching bright pink board covers open to 48 high quality shiny pages in the popular 2-page spread format.
Numbered pages.
Beautifully illustrated throughout, this book is further enhanced by relevant expressions and some speech bubbles.
Clear, easy-to-follow text - with an average of 2-3 sentences on each page, including speech.
Complete with pretty pale pink ribbon bookmark!

My experience has shown that these books are an ideal jump from the more basic one story type books - to the more grown-up 'chapter' books without the same story spanning more than one chapter, which can be daunting to the less confident or experienced reader.
Usborne Books offer great scope for interaction and further discussion, and are rarely on the reading corner bookshelves.

Example of text (from the first story)
`The tooth fairy:-
It was a fantastic day for Crystal.
She had passed her final test at the tooth fairy training school.
Now she could turn children's baby teeth into money.

Jet, Crystal's lazy classmate, had failed all her tests. She would never be a tooth fairy.
As Jet grumbled, the others flew home and prepared for their first trips.

3.0 out of 5 stars Small & Cramped 11 Jan 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This was a rather disappointing book. It turned out to be similar to a Ladybird book so was much smaller than I expected. The pictures are also quite small as was the writing. I had expected much more of a picture book to sit and share with a toddler as opposed to this one. I am not sure how much use this book will get. It isn't ideal for sharing and once the toddler is big enough to read it herself she will no longer be interested in the young style fairies and stories.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay 15 July 2010
By A. Woodmansee - Published on
Our twin daughters had just turned 3 when we got them this book. They are into the usual girly stuff, fairies, mermaids, princesses, unicorns, so we got this for the fairies. This book will also make a nice beginning reader for when the girls get to that age, we like the Usborne First Reading and Young Reading books and have started to collect them for the girls (we prefer the First Reading to the Young Reading). I like the artwork, and it is a very high quality little hard cover book with a ribbon for marking your place, all at a very low price for what you are getting. One of the three stories is completely forgettable, one about a forgetful fairy planning isn't bad and I like how the Troll turns out to be a good thing, but the girls didn't get into that story. But the first story about the tooth fairy really got the girls and that is the one they ask to hear. However, I don't like how there is a bit of angry name calling by both Crystal and Jet in this story. So, I'd have given it a 4 for the simple reason that they girls love the tooth fairy story and I don't mind the forgetful fairy story, but name calling ruins it a bit for me so I only gave it a 3, that and I think the whole book, like much of the Young Reading series we've seen, is just not memorable. But, if you have fairy addicts, then this is an attractive sturdy book for your collection.
