Philippa Fisher's Fairy Godsister

by Liz Kessler
ISBN: 9780545208147

Philippa Fisher is 11 and a half and of course unhappy with life. Thankfully she still believes in fairies because one evening, after her best friend moves away, she picks a daisy that she is sure will turn into a fairy.

Turns out, the daisy is a fairy godsister (instead of godmother), and both of them have lots of things to learn.

This book was fun- three wishes in a modern society. There was a little bit of teasing and "the in-girls vs. outsiders" but not too much. My 7 year old daughter enjoyed it.

Lessons learned are accepting your parents and self the way you are, and being more compassionate and understanding toward others.

It's a fourth grade reading level and I think appropriate for that age.
