This wasn’t quite the book I had imagined by the title. It’s not a long story, and to be honest, for the most part I was rather perplexed as I was waiting for it to ‘get going’ once I felt it was more about an adventure of a fairy, rather than a story particularly about a fairy, and this did not happen until the last few chapters which suddenly became very interesting indeed – especially the portion about Flory’s encounter with a spider! There are a few pictures which are nice, and the story does have rather a satisfactory ending, and so it’s worth sticking with. My concern that many perhaps won’t, as I almost gave up a couple of times myself. My only caution would be to say don’t expect too much, and I felt that it was a great pity that it took so long to get off the ground, as being such a short book, it seemed such a great shame to have wasted what little there was for the first portion in relatively uninteresting events.
Somehow the story lacked atmosphere.
