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)

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.
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.
