I love how her day was horrible then the best day ever!
We haven't quite been going in order in this series since I let my daughter pick which book to read next and she mostly goes by the cover. This was a good lesson in hiw different people and their interests can be, and also learning to be honest with yourself. She didn't enjoy it quite as much as the other two we've read, but there were some good lessons to be learned at least.

Rosetta was a garden-talent fairy who loved beautiful things -- flowers and frilly dresses and delicate petal shoes. She hated to get dirty. In her flower patch, everything was in perfect order. Her friend Fawn was just the opposite. Fawn was a rough-and-tumble animal-talent fairy who loved playing acorn ball and talking to animals.

In this Pixie Hollow story, the two friends agree to each spend a day doing what the other wants. The characters are so stereotypical that it becomes annoying to read

There's a small fire, and the fairies work quickly to put it out before it could spread all the way to Pixie Hollow. Fawn plays a major role in this, while Rosetta, who was also there, doesn't do anything to help. She doesn't want to get dirty or have her clothes ruined.

Later, there's a special dinner party given by Queen Clarion to honor those who helped, and Rosetta is not given a medal.

Rosetta and Fawn had made an arrangement that results in Rosetta spending a day with Fawn, supposedly to ha

I learned that it is good to try something new, as long as you DON'T get hurt physically or emotionally or that someone else gets hurt. Remember that life is one big party and you have to accept the dresses, makeup, and shoes in life as well as the worms, slugs, and mud. We all have to get dirty at least SOMETIMES, I mean that's what showers are for!!! Even though to other people getting dirty may not seem scary or brave to other people, it matters what you think. AND REMEMBER, your true friends ...more

Bercerita tentang persahabatan antara Rosetta dan Fawn. Rosetta yang cantik dan serba rapi, sedangkan Fawn yang tomboy dan senang berkotor-kotoran. Petualangan mereka mengingatkan saya pada sahabat-sahabat saya. Yang paling saya suka sebenarnya ilustrasinya, hehehe... Karena sewaktu kecil saya hanya berkesempatan menikmati dongeng hanya dari majalah, tidak ada salahnya sekarang mencoba melahap dongeng lagi, hehehe...

Even though two people can be complete opposites, they can still be the best of friends. In this book a garden fairy (rosetta) and an animal fairy (fawn) are the best of friends. They both help each other feel special on different occasions. Rosetta was brave to save Fawn and Fawn was brave to wear a pretty dress and look all fancy. In the end, this was a great story. I would highly recommend it for children.

These illustrations were on point. Rosetta looks gorgeous in her long auburn hair and so did Fawn, dressed up!

It reminded me of Tinker Bell and the Never Beast Disney Fairies movie where they really changed Fawn -- hair, personality -- it really bordered on whitewashing, kind of.

I'm glad Fawn stayed true to form here, a bit tomboyish, rough but loyal and helpful. I like Rosetta's growth here too, though the title was somewhat misleading.

I have to say this one was not one of my favorites. Usually the Disney Fairies are spot on lessons while the friendship aspect was right the part about facing your fear just felt off to me. Yes they both face there fear and receive an award but in real life the reward is facing your fear you do not always get a reward. So that part irked me.

I know it’s a kids book but still you are trying to teach kids with these books.

This was a really fun and adventerous book! Rosetta trys to get Tinker Bell to dress up for a party, but she won't do it unless Rosetta does something that Tinker Bell wants to do. Rosetta says "yes" and thinks it's not going to be too bad-but it's NOT what she had in mind.

Rosetta is not among my favorite fairies, but I can relate to her fondness of beautiful things.

This story doesnt show us Rosetta's skill with flowers, instead it shows how she is able to overcome her fear. A good morale for children, no doubt.

rosetta makes a deal with fawn: fawn has to wear dresses and mind her manners while rosetta has to spend the day helping the animals. they basically switch jobs. rosetta ends up hating the animal job because she gets her dress all dirty and gets stinky.

I don't love the Disney Fairy books, but Sallie does. This one has actually allowed us to talk together about what "being a friend" means. Only one chapter to go. Hurrah!
Cute story with a good lesson in not trying to change our friends and accepting our differences.
