Review

Aimed at girls aged between six and ten years of age, the enchanting new books are sure to inspire the imagination of their readers. The girls of The Fairy Chronicles are otherwise normal girls, who have been blessed by Mother Nature with special gifts. Their extraordinary adventures will change the world! The Fairy Chronicles written by J H Sweet from Texas, are modern fairy tales, and can be read as stand alone titles and in any order. With many more books in the pipeline, they're sure to become very popular. --The Weekly News - June 9th 2007. --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.

From the Author

The Fairy Chronicles is a series of modern fairy tales full of magical creatures, both good and evil, and heroic characters who participate in dangerous missions to protect nature and fix serious problems. Ideal for all ages, reading levels ages 7 to 12, the stories include a diverse set of fairy characters and a wide variety of other magical creatures such as trolls, brownies, witches, dwarves, gnomes, elves, unicorns, goblins, wizards, dragons, ogres, magic gargoyles, gremlins, demons, nymphs, giants, and many more. Each story has some sort of problem to be solved such as recovering the stolen Shell of Laughter, helping to break an evil curse, solving the mystery of the Magic Snowglobe, rescuing kidnapped bat fairies, trying to locate missing human shadows, or helping a dragon complete a dangerous quest. Characters and readers learn interesting things such as why fairies fear jigsaw puzzles, what the trolls’ favorite foods are, how dragons are born, why the flamingo stands on one foot, the reason human beings have a shadow, what the grasshopper uses buttons for, where courage comes from, how hope is spread around the world, and what causes nightmares.

Format: Paperback
I got hooked on this series from reading the first book. But I admit I like the second one better than the first. It has more action and is more exciting. The fairies take a long journey riding on a falcon and an owl because it is too far for fairies to fly on their own. They have a run-in with trolls which is somewhat scary for them at first, but turns out okay because the trolls actually like the fairies. Then they meet with the Dream Spider who is also scary but wouldn't harm fairies. The book has something of a trick ending which I admit I didn't see coming. It also has quaint details worked into it about gnomes, brownies, gardening, recycling, and some lessons to learn. This is a very good story and would be suitable for people of all ages. There are a lot more books in this series, and I have started to read the free E-books at the Fairy Chronicles website. I am now a fairy lover because of this series.

This is not just a sweet fairytale story. The girls who have fairy spirits don't just set out on a fantasy adventure. They care about things like nature, recycling, listening to wise gnomes and working in gardens. The characters also seem to care about each other and they help others.

The fairies, led by Dragonfly, set out on an adventure to find the Dream Spider, who is supposed to be incredibly scary, but who really turns out to be an okay spider with a pretty interesting job. Even though he is on holiday and doesn't like being disturbed, he helps the fairies with their mission. The fairies get to ride on birds in this tale and they get to meet trolls in the woods. That is the part of the fairytale that is a simple fairy story and fun for children of all ages. The other parts of the book, having to do with recycling and listening and caring, are cleverly worked in so that people reading this book will get the messages, but they will still have fun reading the story. This is the way children's books should be. I give this 'Sweet' story five stars for the added meaning, and I am going to encourage others to read this book.

My eight year old daughter loves this book. I think it is very motivating and inspiring. The girls work together on their mission. Adult fairies are along to keep an eye on things but the young girls handle things themselves pretty well. This book is packed with alot of fun. Healty and active fun are stressed in the gardening and recycling. Imagination is catered to with the trolls, gnomes, brownies and Dream Spider. The girls in the book have qualities and gifts to help them get things done. Young readers will be inspired and empowered by this fun adventure.

J. H. Sweet ...

what a treat ...

on writing fairies,

she can't be beat.

Book one was pure delight,

and book two is "out of sight."

She also has book three and four,

and about fifty more.

Each of this author's books stands alone as far as storyline, and I discovered something new about fairies and fairy lore in each one. She's a fine writer, so good at her craft that the fairies came alive for me. Interesting storylines, colorful characters in an exciting, entertaining format.

Highly recommended.
