Prilla just can't say no. When Nettle asks her to join in on caterpillar sheering for the second day in a row, Prilla tells a little white lie—she prefers butterflies to caterpillars. Then all the butterfly-herding talent fairies come down with a case of fairy pox, and because of her "love of butterflies," Prilla is asked to help out. But butterfly-herding is a lot harder...more

We enjoyed this story from Disney, one of many Disney Fairies Tales of Pixie Hollow books that our oldest daughter found at her school library. I have a feeling we'll be reading more of the same.

This one is about being true to yourself, not letting everyone run all over you, and telling the truth. The lessons were good, the story was fairly funny and the book was a quick read.
i looove Pixie Hollow!

i love fairy-tales and all of them. And this one, i learnt that i have to be more honestly to the things that i really deeply madly in love with, than the things that i hate most, because the things that we do, the things that we love/don't, it's really matter for us. It's really matter for our life.

Every single thing in fairy-tale story, there's something i can learn from it in different way. Many of people are cynical to the fairy-tale story because it's maybe doesn't to...more
Sweet story about one of my favorite Disney Fairies...I appreciated the lessons, not only about lying, but about friendship and enjoying the differences in one another.

I didn't expect to like anything about these Disney fairy books. My 5-year-old adores them and has been begging me to read them on my own--not just snippets to her. She sat next to me as I skimmed, asking me if I had reached this or that good part yet. It turns out that these fairy books have something to offer. The writing is solid, the characters are developed and they examine honest consequences to personal decisions without heavy-handedness. Prilla learns to value her own talents and identit...more

This one was cute. I Prilla is she a fairy with the talent of blinking to the clumsies (humans) mainland and playing with child. This talent keeps the fairies alive because it keeps the belief of fairies alive. I wish there was a little more of her using her talent because I think it cute when she plays with the kids. It had a pretty good lesson at the end too.
Prilla is a cute fairy who cannot say no to others... she ends up lying saying she likes butterflies when she actually is not. Later she learns that butterflies like to play prank on everyone... and she is now their primary target.

Well, I do like butterflies, so I enjoy reading this book and look at the illustrations of beautiful butterflies :D
Another charming and engaging fairy story that my daughter and I read together! We enjoyed it immensely. Beautiful artwork inside and a great lesson on honesty for the young reader. This darling fantasy story is sure to exceed your expectations with captivating descriptions, as well as a fabulous lesson on telling the truth!
prilla lie's to get out of caterpillar sheering by saying she prefers butterfly herding. so when they ask for her help, she discovers the butterflies keep playing tricks on her and she doesn't like it. she fesses up to queen clarion and tells her the truth.
Prilla is often helping other talents with their work. Then not wanting to hurt a friends feelings she tells a little lie. Seems the butterflies are playing pranks on her.
This book has the same idea of a bad case of stripes. Don't be afraid to say no or be like other people. you are fine just the you are. I rate this book 3 stars.
I love this collection of books, very sweet and entertaining.
This is about prilla and a butterfly lie, clues in the name ;)
These books are short but I love them ! Being carried away to pixie hollow for an hour is enjoyable every once in a while :)
