The life of a young girl called Celia is interworven with her grandmother's life, also called Celia, who has come to live with her grand-daughter and her family. Grandmother Celia begins to tell Celia about her childhood memories of her experiences with fairies and Celia,herself, begins to meet her own fairies.

I read this book myself, and I enjoyed it but I can also see my 9 year old daughter enjoying it too. She is too old for the Rainbow Fairies and this is the perfect book for her to read. I found myself loosing myself in the story and its fantasy world.

There are underlying themes of love, friendship and loyalty and these are important in the world today.

I would recommend it as a good book for girls aged 7-11 years and would be great to share in a class or between friends, a great book to read to children at bedtimes - i am sure they would have great dreams, dreaming about the fantasy world within.

It's a fairy kinda thing. You'd have thought I'd have had enough of
them by now what with the infestation we experienced in The Wolf Cave
last Autumn about which I shared some thoughts in my recent review of
Signe Pike's entertaining book 'Faery Tale : One Woman's Search For
Enchantment In A Modern World' but here they are again, febrile and
all aflutter, to embroider yet another story of enchantment, adventure
and skullduggery, this time within the pages of Karen McQuestion's
fine novel 'Celia and The Fairies'. It is a simple but entertaining read.

Celia's Grandmother comes to stay and it is clear from the outset
that the old girl has more than a little prior knowledge of the tiny
folk and their wily ways. The dastardly Vicky McClutchy (move over
Cruella de Ville, you have competition!) has designs on taking over
Celia's parents' toy company by means unfair and foul and it falls
you our young heroine to save the day with help from her otherworldly
friends and a magic flute (move over Mozart!). Head-honcho fairy Mira
(an interfering and somewhat self-aggrandising sprite, so typical
of her kind) enlists the help of Celia to put the world to rights and
save the day. The plot is well-managed and easy to follow and passed
the "read-out-loud" test with flying colours. Little ones will love it.

I'm done with fairies for a while now; trolls may well be my next thing!

Recommended.

The small girl to whom I read this story was quite young for it (at seven), but she was prepared to sit and listen and seemed to enjoy the first couple of chapters.

Then came a long passage where the grandma was telling her story and the lead character in the story kept interrupting her. This was annoying - both for me as the reader and for my seven-year-old who said "Why can't she just SHUT UP and listen?" Hmm. My sentiments, too.

The child was no longer interested after Chapter 4, so I continued the story myself and I can't say my opinion of it improved much. It was very "American" with very little of fairy 'softness' about it - the head fairy was a strident leader of a hierarchical fairy structure; the "baddie" had no redeaming features and the heroine was MUCH too nice, her only apparant failing being eavesdropping on her parents and treating them as if she was the adult and they the children.

I found it an unsattisfactory read with shallow, single-aspect characters. I'm sure this is not necessary in a children's book aimed at pre-teens. To my mind, if a child was old enough to read this for themselves, then complex characters and plots are certainly not beyond them.

I bought this to read to a group of friends children. They absolutely loved me reading it and several then asked their parents if they would buy them their own copies.

Celia is an only child and is delighted when her Grandmother comes to live with her and her family. Her Grandmother tells her that when she was her age, she had helped a Fairy who was in mortal danger and had been rewarded by being given a silver flute. At first Celia is very sceptical about her Grandmother's story but then one night she also answers a call from Mira the same Fairy who years ago had contacted her Granny. Mira tells her that something very bad is going to happen and that only she will be able to stop it. This appears to be a hard task for one little girl but she resolves to try and sort out whatever problem it is that is coming.

Paul is her friend who lives next door and he has an Aunt who owns a toy empire and is ruthless in what she wants and how she gets it.........Celia's Father on the other hand also owns a Toy Shop which is lovingly family run and all the toys are made by hand and on site. Vicky, the Aunt in question wants to buy out the toy shop and will stop at nothing to get her hands on it, stooping really low to get what she wants. This is where Celia comes in but first she must find the missing half of the magic flute for without it she will not be able to help.

This was a great little book with enough excitement in it to keep 6 children quiet for long stretches at a time. I also admit to liking it and I'm hardly a child.

I highly recommend this lovely little book.
