"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.

The Fairies will again have the assistance of the Brownies and several flying birds. We also meet a Troll, who manages to capture several Fairies in glass bell jar. Will the Fairies escape the Troll? Will they be able to find the Dream Spider to replace the Web of Dreams? This book is just as captivating as the first.
In addition to learning about plants, flowers, animals and insects, one of the best things I like about The Fairy Chronicles is the environmental issues each book tackles. Dragonfly and the Web of Dreams focuses on reducing, reusing and recycling. These environmental lessons are perfect for teaching children to be environmentally responsible.
What a treat ...
On writing fairies,
she can't be beat.
Book one was pure delight,
and book two is "out of sight."
She also has book three and four,
and about fifty more.
Each of this author's books stands alone as far as storyline, and I discovered something new about fairies and fairy lore in each one. She's a fine writer, so good at her craft that the fairies came alive for me. Interesting storylines, colorful characters in an exciting, entertaining format.
