I like how Kristy and Rachel went to the beach with their Moms and Dads and found Amber the orange fairy in a seashell. They got to see each other inside the pot. Ruby and the frog footmen made a house inside the pot as well. They were very creative and made the chairs, ground and pillows.

A fine follow-up to Ruby the Red Fairy!

In Ruby the Red Fairy, the Fairy Queen had told Rachel and Kirsty, "Let the magic come to you." Indeed, they were unable to find any fairies when they searched purposefully. It was only when they were caught up in their own fun at the beach that Amber the Orange Fairy appeared to them.

The Fairy Queen had also given each girl a magic bag to be used when they were in need of help. Sure enough, when the girls first found Amber, she was trapped, and it was on...more

(Mommy's review from 9/24/10)

If the books in this series continue to hold Julia's attention and get her excited about reading they'll all get five stars and a glowing review from me. We're reading these together because Julia can't yet read alone although these books are helping her to become more comfortable with certain words, along with the work we do here at home and what she does at her school.
We started out using these (the first one in the series and the beginning of this) as before bedti...more

This is the second book in the original Rainbow Magic series by the group of authors who go by the pseudonym Daisy Meadows. This series is the first of the many (about 125!) books in the Rainbow Magic series (yes, it confused me at first, too.) In any case, I'm not sure why we waited so long to read these original books, as now our oldest is finally reading about how Rachel and Kirsty got together with the fairies in the first place. Our oldest took a little break from fairies, but is getting in...more
After Rachel and Kirsty have found Ruby their next fairy to find is Amber the orange fairy. This brings a new adventure to Rachel and Kirsty and they must search RainSpell Island again to find the second rainbow fairy. Amber is hidden in another magical spot on RainSpell Island and of coarse Jack Frost finds out that Rachel and Kirsty are out to find Amber and the others and he soon sends out his nasty green goblins to fight Rachel and Kirsty off from his evil plan. I know I sound so dorky writi...more

It is very simple and perfect for light reading. I really enjoyed it!

I think that Amber the orange fairy is very active. The Rainbow fairy`s are in trouble so Rachel and Kristy are going to help find them. Ruby has already been found, now Rachel and Kristy have to help Amber the orange fairy.
Amber the orange fairy is found in a shell.
Louise (A Strong Belief in Wicker)
Formulaic fairy fiction that is an absolute hit with young girls. Daisy Meadows is the nom de plum for a group of writers. Great concept though. The rainbow fairies have been banished from Fairyland and so Fairyland has no colour. Rachel and Kirsty have to find a rainbow of fairies. Amber is the second in this rainbow hue of stories. Lots of elements little girls love- fairies sleeping in shells on rose petals, very mildly scary goblins, and Rachel and Kirsty get changed to fairy size in every b...more
(My overall review for the rainbow magic series)

These books were so magical to me as a child. They really got me into reading and I was so addicted. They helped me learn the colours of the rainbow and entertained me for several years. The books aren't very good. I've tried reading them again because I was interested in what I saw in them. The books are very similar and repetitive but to child version of me, they were completely perfect!
Cute. Introduction of some villains to add a little excitement, but not really scary for the kids. I won't review the rest, but seems like a cute enough series. Only takes like 20-30 minutes to read. Timothy said they're not that interesting, cuz they just do the same thing each book. I guess the first couple books seem new and fresh, but if this pattern continues (look for fairy, find fairy, use magic), I can see this getting redundant.
When I got home from the library with this book, I grabbed the library bag and sorted all the books and this was the first one I read (after Ruby). It made me excited when Ruby said "Help" when the wind made the sand go up and the shell was seen and there was a little tinkling voice singing in it. At once I knew it was a fairy! I LOVED the book and the second I was done with it, I grabbed Sunny to read.

This is the second story of the ainbow fairies. Amber got caught in an enourmas shell. Again Kirsty and Rachel have to watch out for the nasty goblins and for anything that could harm Amber.
Amber is the orange fairy and she is very happy to know that her sister Ruby is save and that the rest of her sisters wil maybe be just as save as the two faries are.
My favorite part was when the frog kicks the ice pot so Ruby and Amber could make it their home.

I like the part when the gobblins were trying to chase them.

And when Amber asks lots of questions and Rachel answered them.

I also liked when Amber was trapped inside the shell and was rescued.

its a really good book if you like to read books base on magic. but this book is kind of thin so you could finish this book in like 1 day .plus if you want to read this book don't forget to read the first book "RUBY THE RED FAIRY"because its kind of confusing if you don't read the first book .

I used to read these when I was younger and really liked them, now I realise in every book the stories are exactly the same; Two girls meet a fairy in trouble, they try to save the fairy, the 'goblins' cause a problem, they eventually save the day. But they're okay if you're 6 :)
my favorite part was when Amber was found.the worst part was when the goblins went after the varies to catch them.the best characters were Rachel and Kristy because they helped find amber.the worst character was the goblins because they tried to catch amber and ruby.

I think this book is very adventrous and magical.This book is about two girls which are called rachel and kristy they always meet a magical fairy which is a coulour fairy.All seven fairys have a special colour.
I like it a lot because they find things in funny places on their vacation.

My favorite part was when they found Amber inside the clam shell and they tickled the clam shell so it would open up.

I loved this as a child. Yes I know I am a boy and this should appeal to girls only, but fairies (kind and beautiful on the outside, dark on the inside) always fascinated me. I was a strange kid.
I thought the "suspenseful" part of the story ended too abruptly, but the girls in the story go on a nice little adventure. I think children will like this story though.
Another sweet fairy story... that the human girls get turned into fairies in the story is particularly appealing to a certain 5 year old listening to this story!
One of the graces about this series is little girl's finding their name in the title, or their best friend's name. Our daughter loved hers - love you Amber girlie!
