All the horrors of tests are laid to rest in this gentle story about a young fairy who worries about her magic powers. When the teacher announces a spell test, Flora gets into a panic. Boastful Harry is sure he’ll pass with flying colours but Flora is not sure her own skills are up to it. Luckily, when she gets a bit wobbly, Mum, Dad, Nana and Grandpop are all more than willing to help her learn the magic words. Flora can do magic; she’s just nervous of the test…

Synopsis

Flora the Fairy's Magic Spells by Tony Bradman

Flora the Fairy enjoys school. But one day, her teacher tells them they will be tested on their magic skills the next day. All the children start practising but, try as she might, Flora can't remember the words of the spell. Even her friend Harry can do it right - what will Flora's mummy and daddy say when she doesn't pass the test?

About the Author

Tony Bradman

Tony Bradman was born in 1954 (not during the Jurassic era, as his children have been known to claim). He went to school in London, and then Cambridge University. After university he worked in the music press, then became Deputy Editor of Parents magazine, and began reviewing children’s books. He had his first book for children published in 1985 and became a full-time author in 1987.

Tony loves films and popular culture. He lives in Beckenham, Kent with his wife Sally and their three children Emma, Helen and Thomas and Rufus the cat.

TONY BRADMAN Q&A:

If you were a Viking warrior, what would your name be? And what about your battle cry?

Which of the places in the book would you most like to visit: Russia, Norway or Constantinople? Why?

If you were a Viking warrior, and could have any person from history/film/books in your gang – who would you choose? And Why? What would the gang be called?

I’d pick all the great Viking warriors – Harald Hardnut, Erik Bloodaxe, the Godwin brothers Tostig and Harold, maybe Thor the Norse God, Beowulf, Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, Boromir and Faramir from Lord of the Rings and loads of others. What would we be called? Why The Cool Vikings, of course!
