Synopsis

It's Not Fairy! by Ros Asquith

The IT'S NOT FAIRY flaps round all night, sorting out what's wrong or right . But there's so many kids saying it's not fair - she's ranting and raving and tearing her hair. She's shouting, 'The very next kids I meet, I'm pretty sure I'm going to EAT!' Billy and Mary say they don't believe in the It's Not Fairy - but that's before she turns up at their house! And it's not only the children she wants to bake into a fairy cake - Mum and Dad come in for their share of blame too. There's nothing for it - the whole family may have to change their ways and be nicer to each other! This is a wonderful, hilarious fantasy starring a very feisty fairy on a mission, which will have the whole family laughing out loud, as well as encouraging discussion about fairness.
