Product Description

Review

The Fairy Chronicles are a fantastic series of books by J H Sweet. They are well written, wonderfully magical and would make a fantastic book to read to your children at bedtime. Older children would also enjoy reading them alone as the words are clear and concise and in large print. The illustrations both on the front cover and inside the books are beautiful and full of colour. Each one is extremely detailed and a lot of time and energy has obviously gone into the design. Over all, The Fairy Chronicles are highly recommended by Enchanted Entertainment as great fun for children of all ages. We have rated this book four out of five. --Enchanted Entertaiment (UK)

Format: Paperback
I read this book to my four-year-old daughter, and she has since become obsessed with it. We continue to read it chapter by chapter, over and over again each night. She runs around the house and back yard pretending to be Marigold and Dragonfly, and she has demanded a peacock feather wand and a fairy handbook. After doing some research on this series, I have discovered that the pages of a fairy handbook appear blank to ordinary people, so it was easy to buy a blank journal and print a label for the cover. Now, she writes in her fairy handbook daily with crayons, usually 3 giant words per page, and draws pictures of butterflies and fairies. Having almost memorized this book, I am looking forward to the day whan she can read it on her own. I recommend Marigold and the Feather of Hope to any parent of a fairy princess with a word of warning - this story can be addictive.

Beth is marigold fairy. She attends fairy circle and meets her new friends Dragonfly, Thistle, and Firefly. With help from Beth's dachshund, Peanut, they set out on a mission to rescue the Feather of Hope (the source of all hope on earth) from a house full of nasty gremlins.
This story is highly imaginative and presents a new twist on traditional fairy lore because the fairies are real girls living among us. With an emphasis on respect for nature, tolerance of differences, and helping others, this book has the power to teach as well as entertain. Add in an adorable dog and fun aspects such as the fairies' love for lemon jellybeans, and the gremlins' fear of vacuum cleaners, dachshunds, and stainless steel, and you have a great story to enjoy again and again. Recommended read for all peoples and ages, particularly girls ages 8-14.

This is a really good book. It is about a girl who finds out she is a fairy. Then she has to go with her friends to rescue the feather of hope from gremlins. I read this book to my little sister. She thinks it is the best book of all time. I think Harry Potter books are better because they are longer. She likes this book because it is shorter. Maybe this book is better because it is more about girls. Mom printed us another Fairy Chronicles book from the internet. We both like it because it is about a peaceful dragon. We are keeping it in a folder to read again. My sister wants a pussywillow wand. She will get one because she is five. I want a wooden wand because it is more grown up like Harry Potter. I want a daschund but I can't have one because we already have a poodle. This is a very very good book. You should read it.

It seems many fairy stories today are either completely rooted in the lore of old, or so trendy that they are obvious mimics of the most popular magical books of our times. I am pleased to report that this book is neither. There is still beauty and delicacy in the realm of The Fairy Chronicles, but the characters are real and genuine human beings.
If there are fairies in our world today, this is precisely how they are living and participating in society. I believe fairies would have progressed with the world to be exactly like this. They would not have stayed stuck in time. I am very impressed that this story presents both lovely elements of fairy fancy and strong characters of today who take action and get things done.
I am tempted to believe that all of this is real, and I wonder how many fairies I might know who are carrying out their important fairy business very cleverly and secretly right under my nose. Even though I am in my forties, this story makes me wish I were a fairy. This is a wonderful book.

Marigold and The Feather of Hope is a must read for all ages. Girls, ages 7-14, will find strength, power, and wisdom in J.H. Sweet's words. Vivid, colorful characters and settings make the story come alive. The story-line is captivating and intriguing, and it keeps you reading until the last page. Looking forward to the next books in the series.
