Autorenkommentar

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.

8 von 8 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Jessica Royas am 6. Oktober 2005
Format: Taschenbuch
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 troll actually like 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.

2 von 2 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Bea Walker am 31. Mai 2007
Format: Taschenbuch
As I mentioned in my review of the first book, these fairies are not like others in more traditional fairy books. These are real human beings solving real problems. But there is also beauty and frivolity and fun. The characters in this book in addition to the fairies are very appealing including a sweet gnome, the Sandman, confused but friendly trolls, and an interesting Dream Spider that spins a magical web to catch our nightmares. This adventure was very engaging, and I couldn't stop reading it. This book also made me want to pay more attention to my recycling efforts. I am normally a practical and frugal person who reuses things, but I want to be more diligent now. Great and fun adventure, and as I mentioned in the review I did of Marigold and the Feather of Hope, the Journey Begins, a surprisingly unique fairy series that is not disappointing to a lifelong fairy book collector. Bravoooo Fairy Chronicles!

I am very drawn to the characters in this book. Having read Book One, I find Marigold's worry, lack of confidence, and tears very touching. I am also impressed with the author's light admonishment of Dragonfly's judgment of others while praising her conviction. And I never knew trolls and gnomes were such delightful creatures. This story has a remarkable ability to teach us to appreciate the simple and beautiful things in life and to protect them. I would love to see an animated version of this story to be able to see the Web of Dreams in sparkling action, catching nightmares.
Unfortunately, this tale did nothing to help alleviate my fear of spiders. Despite the vegetarian status of the Dream Spider, and his apparent non-violent nature, there is something about a spider the size of a mixing bowl that unnerves me. Great fairy tale for all ages, as long as you can stand to read about a large spider.

Von Janice Welbourne am 8. Januar 2006
Format: Taschenbuch
Many small details in this story are completely charming and could almost be separate stories, like Mr. Wimple's knowledge of boots and rabbits and trolls traveling the woods with bell jars. Mr. Wimple's thrill at attending the Garden Gnome Convention is also very sweet. The girls' nightmares are pretty cute too, mummies and falling elevators, but not overly scary for youngsters.
There is a nice tie-in with the first book of this series as far as characters, but you don't have to read the first book to enjoy this one. The fact that the fairies like to play cat's cradle and tease each other about boys made me think of my own childhood. I look forward to reading more of these books and definitely recommend this one.

Great Story with Cultural Diversity 10. Januar 2006
Von Sarah Alexander - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
When the Web of Dreams is destroyed, and the fairies set out on a journey to find the Dream Spider (the creature needed to rebuild the web), they encounter a few surprises along the way including trolls and other fairies. The writer of this tale certainly knows girls today. The characters are as diverse, both in culture and personality, as my daughter's friends. Dragonfly is a particularly strong character, very committed to her ideals. We need more stories about young girls of color in leadership roles, making a difference in the world. I enjoyed the caffeine and insomnia bits worked into this story. The fairies also learn a valuable lesson from the Sandman - that appearances can sometimes be deceiving. I enjoyed this story even more than the first book in the series.

great reading for young girls 17. März 2006
Von Mom of 3 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
My daughter, age 8, does not enjoy reading. However, she has read all three of The Fairy Chronicles and now wants to read more books about fairies. She has passed the books to our neighbors-all 2nd thru 4th graders-and has the girls on our street building fairy houses and imagining fairy things. The Fairy Chronicles are wonderful, innocent and inspirational books to encourage young girls to use their imagination.

A Great Adventure! 16. Juni 2007
Von Jennifer Donovan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I wasn't sure what to make of these books in the Fairy Chronicles series by J.H. Sweet. I know that some girls love princesses and fairies and unicorns, but I don't think that my eight-year-old daughter and I are in that camp. We were both hooked in the first chapter, because this is not just a story about a feminine mythical creature. It's an adventure story. It's also a story of self-discovery. Every two to three pages are illustrated with really beautiful pen and ink drawings by Tara Larsen Chang, which makes the book even more captivating. The story could be enjoyed by girls age six or seven on up to ten, at least. The print is big (like an early reader), but the vocabulary is fairly complex (My third grade daughter could easily understand, but there were a few unfamiliar words). It makes for a nice combination that is not too intimidating to read, and yet will challenge a girl while she's reading it (sort of like when Kindergarteners have so much fun that the don't realize that they are learning). This also makes it a great read-aloud, because you can stop and talk about the new words. Each book is about 100 pages, which I have found is a nice length for a book that we are going to read together before bed, because we are able to finish the book within a week and not get too weary of it. It's also just the right length for a slower or more reluctant independent reader to be able to tackle on her own.

Jennifer (Dragonfly) and her friends join the Sandman to visit the spider who spins the Web of Dreams. The web has been destroyed and so people all over the world are having too many nightmares. Along with action, this book has a little bit of mystery as well.

Dragonfly's Mission 8. Januar 2006
Kinder-Rezension - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
My sister and I like this. We like fairies and books about fairies. Dragonfly leads this fairy mission to find the Dream Spider. She handles herself well when she meets the trolls and the dream spider. Dragonfly gets to see the Web of Dreams in the end. It is in a secret place. Riding on birds sounds like fun. The Dream Spider gives Dragonfly a bracelet in the end to help her sleep. I will read this book again with my sister.

Another "Fairy Team" Job Well Done 21. Mai 2007
Von Rachael T - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
J.H. Sweet brings back the Fairy Team in another magical story telling of The Fairy Chronicles. In book two of the series, Dragonfly and the Web of Dreams, the reader revisits this magical world of fairies, gremlins, brownies, mystical spiders and even a cameo from the Sandman! But there is much more than magic happening in Dragonfly and the Web of Dreams.

One of the best points to make about The Fairy Chronicles is the way J.H. Sweet weaves lessons of environmental responsibility into the stories, without it seeming out of place. Jennifer Sommerset, also known as Dragonfly in her fairy form, is avid on the notion of recycling and reusing. From making sure her family has the proper recycling bins, to encouraging her neighbors to do their part, Jennifer goes above and beyond the environmentally conscious duties of all fairies. Jennifer is also known for her pamphlets, created wholly on her part, for ideas on how to reuse things like coffee cans and butter tubs. These are everyday examples of how easy it is to make the world a better place to live in, and young impressionable readers will be educated and inspired by these environmentally friendly messages.

Dragonfly and the Web of Dreams also delivers the important message of team work, as the Fairy Team and other characters introduced in the first book of the series work together to benefit all of mankind. Sometimes team work also means working with someone you don't know very well or have a misconception about, and Dragonfly and the Web of Dreams demonstrates to young readers how you really can't judge a book by its cover. The Dream Spider is a very large, furry creature that has a deep booming voice and is very intimidating by appearance. However, in the end, we see how even someone who seems to be dark or scary can actually do something helpful or produce something as mystically beautiful as the Web of Dreams.

J.H. Sweet has perfectly captured the right balance of magic and mystery with real life lessons of team work, environmental responsibility and open-mindedness. These are perfect lessons for the targeted audience, and Dragonfly and the Web of Dreams makes a great family reading session! The magical fairy world of The Fairy Chronicles takes everyone, from the young and the young at heart, into a place that is exciting to visit, over and over again.
