Booklist Review

K^-Gr. 3. The illustrations border on twee in this lesson-laden tale, but they have a certain charm: gossamer-winged fairies, rustic-looking woodkins, and a very impish imp fill the pages in opalescent colors. Fia, a fairy without wings, is assisting the woodkins in gathering stores for the winter, but her sister, Violet, flies above the fray, mocks their industry, and taunts Fia for getting dirty instead of celebrating her engagement. But Fia is also adventure prone, and when she sets out to rescue two woodkins, romance is again postponed. Boggle the Imp plays a part in the rescue and in getting Fia her heart's desire, which is rather different from what he thinks it is. Being different, learning to get along, cultural clashes, and the importance of manners are all hammered a bit hard in this companion to Fairy Wings (1995), but the messages are softened by pictures that emphasize the lighter side, both visually and emotionally. --GraceAnne A. DeCandido

School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-3-In this companion volume to Fairy Wings (Little, Brown, 1995), Mills and Nolan once again create a magical fantasy world drawn in ethereal watercolors. Fia, a wingless fairy, is a devoted friend of the lowly earthbound woodkins, who are despised and mocked by the other fairies. She shows her courage and wits when mischievous woodkin twins float downriver on a raft they've been forbidden to ride and she must find and rescue them. This world is populated with unusual creatures, including a delightfully wicked imp, the colorful and tattered woodkins, and some culturally diverse fairies. The ending will satisfy its audience with the declaration by Kip, the fairy prince, that "From this day forward, fairies and woodkins will be friends who work together for the good of all." The text is lengthy and sophisticated, and is suitable for longer or multiple read-aloud sessions.-Shelley B. Sutherland, Niles Public Library District, IL (c) Copyright 2010.
