5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly Detailed!, 22 Aug. 2009
This review is from: My Fairy Showtime (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My 7 year old daughter has really enjoyed this book. In fact it's much more than just a book! From the outside it looks colourful and exciting and she was very keen to look inside. There is a story at the front, followed by a section which opens out into an amazing pop up area to play in.

My daughter found the story exciting, fun and "a bit funny", particularly at the end. She especially enjoyed the part where the Mr Marvellous, the Conjuror, is chasing his butterflies. The story seems to reflect well the reality of back stage in a theatre shortly before the show begins, albeit in a fairy way!

There are fairies and accessories to push out at the end of the story ready to play with in the pop out area at the end. These were quite easy for my daughter to push out, and the page was strong enough not to worry about tearing. We found it a little tricky to get the fairies to stand up, but with a bit of wiggling of the "standers" we managed it. There was a minor problem with one of the hats that seemed to be missing a slot to allow it to go on one of the fairies' heads, so we snipped out our own slot. We thought that the paint-pot page where you could store all the fairies and accessories was really useful so that all these bits wouldn't get lost. There was also a surprise in the paint pot of a mini theatre programme.

The pop out section at the back of the book is amazingly detailed. There are 3 sections - the stage, the backstage area, and the entrance area. It opens out and you tie the covers of the book together to make a full circle with access to each of the areas as you turn it round. There are many parts that can be moved or opened and some of the push out accessories fit into different slots. There's even a little door from the backstage area which goes under the stage, many little staircases going up and down, and a trapdoor with a little man popping out when you open it! My daughter loves playing with all the little fairies in here.

My daughter and I would definitely recommend this to other little girls of a similar age, especially if they are into fairies or putting on shows.
