The book is split into three good sized chapter stories:-
Chapter 1 - The tooth fairy - pages 3 -17
Chapter 2 - The forgetful fairy - pages 18 - 34
Chapter 3 - Fairy in a flap - pages 35 - 47
From the back cover:-
'Crystal, Lily and Poppy are three fairies in a flap. With stolen wands, flying lessons and Fairy Balls, there's never a dull moment.
Come to Fairyland and join in the magical fun.'
Durable, eye-catching bright pink board covers open to 48 high quality shiny pages in the popular 2-page spread format.
Beautifully illustrated throughout, this book is further enhanced by relevant expressions and some speech bubbles.
Clear, easy-to-follow text - with an average of 2-3 sentences on each page, including speech.
Complete with pretty pale pink ribbon bookmark!
My experience has shown that these books are an ideal jump from the more basic one story type books - to the more grown-up 'chapter' books without the same story spanning more than one chapter, which can be daunting to the less confident or experienced reader.
Usborne Books offer great scope for interaction and further discussion, and are rarely on the reading corner bookshelves.
Example of text (from the first story)
`The tooth fairy:-

As Jet grumbled, the others flew home and prepared for their first trips.Read more ›
