The Lost Fairy by Marian Broderick


The Lost Fairy by Marian Broderick

What happens to the Christmas tree fairy who falls off her perch? Flora the fairy reckons she is the most important part of Christmas and the most beautiful fairy ever! But Flora has heard worrying stories that some families put a star on the top of the tree. Can you image in it? A mere star! Flora makes sure to kick the star back down a few branches every time she sees it advancing up the tree. But when Flora falls off the tree, the vain and selfish fairy has much to learn before she can regain her rightful place on the Christmas tree.


even though it looks like a girly book, the book is easily read by both boys and girls aged 6 and over. It would also be enjoyed as a bed time story for younger children, like my sisters -- Paddy, 2nd Class, for I would definitely tell my friends to read The Lost Fairy, especially the ones who believe in fairies like me -- The Lost Fairy 'A lively, funny and satisfying read.

'A lovely Christmas story.'
