Pish and Posh are best friends, but they are very different. One day, someone leaves an interesting book on their doorstep. It is called "The Fairy Handbook".

Pish and Posh are friends who try to delve into fairy magic--only it goes awry and it even becomes funny after a while. A fun book!

Recommends it for: beginning readers and parents reading with them

Recommends it for: everyone
A charming "Odd Couple" series for early readers. Practical-minded Pish reads books from the beginning; Posh's impulsiveness gets her into trouble.
