I loved the first book in this cute series Fairy Mom and Me so I was happy to see the next one Fairy In Waiting had arrived. The book is pure magic, it has funny stories, great friends, family fun, and magic. This book had 4 fairy spell stories which read like short stories. This book had a meet fairy mom and me introduction so if you haven’t read the first book that is okay you can know exactly what is going on. All for fairy spell stories were cute but I had a few favorites.
Fairy Spell #1 Monkeridoo! – was cute and funny had lots of animal antics and is sure to make kids laugh
Fairy Spell #2 Stoperidoo! – has a magic wardrobe so this was a favorite because who doesn’t love a magic wardrobe. However this did have a burglar in the house at night so that might scare a younger reader / listener. The author did a great job at making it not scary but for sensitive ones you might want to save this one for another time ( or at least not right at bedtime)
Fairy Spell #3 Sprinkleridoo! – super cute family vacation where they meet another fairy family! There is lots of fun family time and maybe even some ice cream magic.
Fairy Spell #4: Flyeridoo! – Ella has her birthday party and things get a little out of hand when 3 fairies work their magic. A funny story full of a mountain sized cake and flying party guest.
At the end of the book the author includes some fun activities the reader can do by themselves or with family. This series is just so sweet and cute and perfect for any reader / listener who likes fairies and magic in their stories.
About the book: Ella Brook is used to being a Fairy-in-Waiting. It means that one day she will become a fairy with her own sparkly wings and Computawand just like her mom.
But sometimes Ella doesn’t want to have to wait any longer. After all, she helps her mom remember magic codes all the time! If only there was a spell for growing up faster.
Will Ella prove that she’s ready to become a fairy? Or will she learn that she doesn’t need real magic to save the day?
