"The Fairy Chronicles" is a new series from Sourcebooks Jabberwocky. Each book introduces a new fairy with different powers and attributes whilst still keeping familiar friends in the action. The series reflects adventure and teamwork, sending a positive message to the reader, encouraging a healthy, active lifestyle and appreciation of nature. 6 titles are scheduled for 2007 with over 60 books in development for new adventures each season over the lifetime of the series.
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.

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.
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.

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.
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.
