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.

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.
