An imaginative adventure story in a familiar, yet exotic landscape…. Beautifully composed, the artwork combines subtle use of color with a keen observation of nature that’s reminiscent of Beatrix Potter’s work. This finely crafted and unusually dynamic fairy story is a natural for reading aloud.

Beautifully crafted. . . . Barrett’s full-color watercolor illustrations add depth and perspective to the story. Detailed and drawn to scale, they give readers a sense of just how tiny Flory is compared to the other animals. Children will enjoy looking at this garden from the perspective of the tiny but resilient protagonist. Sure to be a favorite among girls who love fairies.

This elegant hardback’s snug size and Angela Barrett’s exquisite miniature illustrations have the effect of making readers feel as if they’ve crept through a magic portal into a fairy-scale world. Indeed, looking up at story’s end, children may be mildly surprised to find that they’re still the size they’ve always been.

Prepare to have your notions of fairyhood debunked: Flory, our heroine, can be snarky and rough. But she's also gutsy, loyal, and inherently good. The story of how Flory must fend for herself after losing her wings brings equal doses of character and suspense – and offers a satisfying antidote to all those prissy princess tales.
