This is a wonderful, hilarious fantasy starring a very feisty fairy on a mission. The witty text and illustrations packed with comic detail will have the whole family laughing out loud, as well as encouraging discussion about fairness.
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!
