The Lovereading4Kids comment
Mischief and magic make an excellent combination in this lively new series. Nixie is not a typical fairy – she’s generally grubby, finds it hard to do what she’s told, and somehow seems to attract trouble. Many young readers will recognise a kindred spirit! In book one, the fairies are getting ready for the annual Blossom Ball and Nixie is inadvertently causing mayhem as usual. Magic flies, tempers fray, and Nixie drops from the sky to crash land on goody-goody Adorabella not once but twice. Nicely told and with illustrations that match the bouncy text young readers will relish this helping of fairy fun. ~ Andrea Reece

Nixie the Bad, Bad Fairy by Cas Lester
Nixie the bad, bad fairy isn't really that bad ...at least, she doesn't think she is. But sometimes she has to be a teeny-tiny bit bad because that goody, goody fairy, Adorabella, is just too ...well ...just too GOOD. Fairy dust and magic are fine, but when your wand's as mischievous as you are, sometimes you have to rely on your own genius inventions to get you out of trouble!
'Cas Lester's authorial voice is distinctively confident, her use of language playful and vivid and her scruffy madcap creation both endearing and authentic'
'This is a super book in an exciting new series.'
'Full of fun and magical mischief'
'This book is full of fun.'
'I think everybody should read this book because it's really funny'
