The Faery's Gift by Tanya Robin Batt


The Faery's Gift by Tanya Robin Batt

If you could make a single wish, what would you wish for? Would you ask for riches, tasty treats or perhaps the ability to fly? A humble woodcutter faces this very dilemma when he rescues a faery one day in the woods. After much conflicting advice from his family, the woodcutter is torn between three difficult choices and must make a decision that will change their lives forever.


'The Faery's Gift... is a wonderful story, gorgeously illustrated... a thought-provoking and intriguing conundrum with a satisfying conclusion that children aged four to seven will thoroughly enjoy' - Sainsbury's Magazine'
