Synopsis

I Wish I Were a Fairy by Smriti Prasadam-Halls

If I were a fairy I'd do magic fairy things. Flitting here and there on my twinkly fairy wings. Whoosh! Be a fairy for the day and do all the things that fairies love, like saying magic spells and flying through the air! With chunky novelties and lots of fun things to spot, children will have hours of fun pulling tabs, lifting flaps and moving sliders in this brand new series of board books that are the perfect size for little hands. The perfect push, pull and play novelty board book for little fairies everywhere!

About the Author

Smriti Prasadam-Halls

Smriti Prasadam-Halls was first an editor in children’s books before turning her hand to writing. Her favourite place to write is actually in bed. This is possibly because she has slept in many weird and wonderful places: a tent in the rainforests of Borneo; a sleeper train jolting across India; a choppy ferry heading for Shetland; a lighthouse on the Mediterranean, a junk in the Hong Kong harbour and a Maharaja’s palace in the middle of a lake, to name but a few! She now lives in London with her family.

A Q&A with Smriti

What do you like best about being an author? Being able to go to work in my pyjamas.

Where is your favourite place to work? Richmond Library or at home, somewhere cosy.

What three things do you need every day before you pick up a pen / pencil? A comfortable spot. Absolute quiet. Coffee.

What are your five favourite things in the whole world? Try as I might I couldn't pick five, so here are seven, in no particular order: Iced buns with a cherry on the top. Listening to the same song over and over because I love it so much. Deer in the park. London at night. VERY spicy South Indian chicken curry. Staying up all night to finish a book. Adventures with my boys.

What are your hobbies? Cooking, reading, playing a collection of instruments (badly), film, theatre, Guardian crosswords, reading a bit more.

Have you any pets? To my children's perpetual misery, no. We kept five hives of bees when I was a child... but I'm not sure that counts.

Have you ever held an owl? Not yet, but I'd love to.

If you were the owl in this book, where would be your favourite place to roost? I'd roost in the tree right outside the children's bedroom, of course.

What was your favourite thing about the night when you were a child? Night time was – and still is – magical, mysterious and beautiful in a tingly, exciting way.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
