Format: Paperback
The whole tone of this book is very strange. The storyline has a vulnerable fat fairy, unloved by everyone, being given a secret to keep forever by an adult fairy. This goes against advice for children around secrets, eg a good secret, like a birthday present, is a secret which is at some point shared with everyone, whereas a secret that you are told to never tell anyone as suggested by the book, is bad. The fact that the secret is sealed with a kiss from the adult is a bit sinister. I would disagree with the earlier reviewer about each character having a role, too. The hefty fairy proves she can do the job, but is still shunned by the other fairies because she is fat. Not one I'll read to the kids again.

Format: Paperback
The story was aimed at 5-7yr olds probably girls because of the fairy aspect. The message was that everyone has a job to do and a place in the world, even though they may be shunned because they are different - in this case a fat fairy.
Unfortunately I had thought it would be aimed at younger children and so it wasn't suitable for me as it was a bit long for 3year olds.
