The Fairy in the Kettle Gets Magical by Pauline Tait

This is the third book in the series The Fairy in the Kettle. I was provided this book as an ARC by NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

My Daughter’s Thoughts:

My daughter LOVED the illustrations in this book. It grabbed her attention immediately, and is ultimately why she chose the book. She wanted to see more. Once we started the book, she was entranced and loved it from start to finish!

My Thoughts:

I too thought the illustrations were quite pretty in this book. Also, I loved that she loved the book. The story was something that I could read again, and again….an important trait in a children’s book. We have way too many books on our shelves that I groan at having to read again. This will not be one of those.

What’s This Book About Anyway?

The fairies have discovered that their fairy dust is getting low. They leave their special home in search of more. Going on an adventure outside of their comfortable homeland in search of this fairy dust, they encounter all sorts of things. They soon realize that they can only find this fairy dust, and bring it home, if they work together.

The River Fairy’s Wish: A Lyrical Fairy Tale by Cyrena Shows

I was provided this ARC by NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

What My Child Thought:

She loved that this story centered around a fairy. She is also a big fan of books like Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly and The River Fairy’s Wish had the same repetitive wording. Where it starts with one thing, and then it repeats that one thing and adds another, and then adds another and repeats the first two things. She adored the illustrations in this book. They were very colorful and vibrant.

What I Thought:

I liked the story, and I liked that while this book did have some of the repetitive lines, it also broke from that halfway through the story, and it made me love the story so much more. The illustrations were quite beautiful and the story was one that was full of fantasy and wishes that little children love.

What’s This Book About Anyway?

The River Fairy’s Wish is about a Princess of the River Fairy’s that wishes to be a human girl. She has a wish saved in her crown. She uses the wish to become a human girl, enjoying the sunshine on her face, and while she does, the River Fairies continue to watch their Princess even though she doesn’t remember.
