It’s hard to imagine a Christmas fairy prettier or more charming that little Clara, the chatterbox star of this story. Clara’s dream is to be a proper Christmas fairy on top of the tree, but at fairy school she just can’t help wriggling and giggling, to the despair of her teacher. That makes Clara feel quite downhearted, to the point of wishing she was someone else, until Santa himself arrives to ask Clara a very special favour. It’s a lovely story with a heart-warming and important message; the text is just right for reading aloud; and lots of little girls will recognise themselves in Rosalind Beardshaw’s button-nosed, curly-haired little mischief-maker Clara. ~ Andrea Reece

The Editor at Nosy Crow says: “This book absolutely pulls on the heartstrings and is sure to be a magical read in the run-up to Christmas. And with its gentle message about being yourself, it’s a book you’ll be thinking about long after the festive season.”

Synopsis

The Christmas Fairy by Anne Booth

Clara knows exactly what she wants to be when she grows up - a Christmas fairy! So when Christmas term comes around, she can't wait to learn everything there is to know. Except things don't quite go to plan ...Clara's SO excited and full of beans that she can't possibly be still and quiet like a fairy should. As much as she tries to be like to be like the others, at heart she's still a wriggly, giggly chatterbox and likes nothing more than making people smile. But when it comes round to the big Christmas Show, it looks like that's exactly the kind of fairy Santa needs to help him save the day. At last, Clara can put her talents to good use, and it soon becomes clear that there's more than one way to be a Christmas fairy!
