"They could remember its warm amber glow shimmering and sparkling as it danced through the air, twisting and turning as it went."
When Leona was woken early one morning, she knew something had to be wrong. But as she rushed to meet the elders, nothing could prepare her for what she was about to hear. Life in Fairy Glen was about to change...the words fairy dust were echoing in the air!

A great picture book." - Rachel McKitterick, NetGalley; "A beautifully illustrated book full of adventure for little imaginations to enjoy. I read this to the children I nanny and they enjoyed it. The illustrations kept them engaged even when the story started to become less interesting in the middle. We all need reminded sometimes that there is magic within us and to not give up even when you feel like there's no hope. I and the children I nanny, are grateful to NetGalley for the opportunity to read an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I'm sure we will be enjoying this book for numerous times to come." - Mary Blankenship, NetGalley; "This is a nice, adventure-y story, but what I really liked were the illustrations.

So, imagine my surprise when I found out that this book was turned into a series and I actually got my hands on the third book in the series "The Fairy in the Kettle gets Magical" and it was quite a cute read! One day, Leona the Kettle Fairy was being awakened by one of the other fairies and it was then that she knew that something was wrong. When Leona met up with her friends and the elders, she finds out that the citizens of Fairy Glen were running out of fairy dust and they needed the fairy dust to maintain their powers. So, Leona and her friends decided to go out of Fairy Glen and find the fairy dust to restore the fairies' powers. Pauline Tait has done a great job at writing this book as it was both cute and interesting to read through! I liked the fact that this story is much more adventurous compared to the first book as the fairies have to go on a mission to save the fairies' source of power. I also loved the great friendship that Leona has with her friends as they go on missions together and I love how supportive they are of each other! Debbie Bellaby's artwork is adorable to look at as all the fairies look so cute and I loved the simplistic yet colorful look of the characters and the world that they live in. The only problem that I had with this book was that the pacing was a bit slow at times and there was not a lot of action sequences in this book that would keep me interested. Overall, "The Fairy in the Kettle gets Magical" is a great read for anyone who loves reading about fairies and magic in general! I would recommend this book to children ages four and up since there is nothing inappropriate in this book." - Ronyell Coaxum, NetGalley; "Leona and her friends live in Elders Hollow, however the fairy dust is running out and they need to find where they hid their supplies. A beautiful illustrated book. Easy the read. Definitely one little girls will love." - Catherine Harrold, NetGalley; 'I was browsing the 'read now' category on NetGalley and I found this lovely magical children's book. Ever since I started working at the library I've been surprised at how well written children's book can be and the art in some children's books are just WOW *insert heart eyes*. Drawing style: It's not my style as I like children's drawings to have a little more detail but it was cute and to the point. It was clear what was going on without having to read the text. I loved the wide range of colour and the bright colours used. Writing style: It was nice and to the point. A child would understand what the story was about and an adult wouldn't get too bored reading this over and over to their child.' - Marlou Klijn, NetGalley; "This is our third visit with Lenora and her friends, the fairies of Willow Glen. This is a cute story with wonderful, whimsical illustrations. They are beautiful, colourful watercolours that captivate the viewer. The message in the story is that of working together to achieve your goal, but it is subtle. The text has a beautiful rhyming cadence that makes it wonderful to a read aloud. I recommend this one to family, school, classroom and public libraries." - Carla Johnson-Hicks, NetGalley
