Pleasant read with a modern twist,
This review is from: Celia and the Fairies (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)This is no doubt a good little book. I enjoyed it and I am sure that kids will, too. Celia is named after her grandmother who once encountered fairies in the woods behind the house and one day she comes to live with Celia and her family. Once this happens the world of fairies comes alive once more and Celia (the younger)is there to help them in their own world and hers, too. The influence that fairies have on the human mind and thoughts is a new twist, even though it is what believers in faeries are sure happens. Celia sets about helping her parents and their business and to stop the taken over of their business by the ruthless Vicky McClutchy. All in all it is fairly well written and very easy to read. There are deeper meanings about love, loyalty, friendship and the greedy capitalist society, but whether young children grasp this or just enjoy this tale remain to be seen. I won't do a spoiler, as that isn't right.
I'd have given it a higher rating if it had been fuller and less 'frenetic' in style.
