In this sweet conclusion to the PHILIPPA FISHER trilogy from Liz Kessler, Philippa is once again visiting her new friend Robyn, who we met in the previous book, Philippa Fisher and the Dream-Maker’s Daughter. While the girls are investigating some standing stones, Philippa is magically transported to the fairy godmother agency where her best friend and fairy godsister Daisy works. While Philippa’s parents are frantically searching for her, Philippa has learned that her mother is in grave danger. ...more

According to Books in Print, Philippa Fisher and the Fairy’s Promise is an intermediate book meant for children ages 8-12; since Paige is probably 8 or 9, I imagine this would work best as a read aloud. I selected this book because Paige noted she liked mystery and fantasy, and this book falls into both categories. Philippa is the main character that has a fairy god-sister named Daisy that breaks fairy protocol in order to warn Philippa to protect her mother.

I have really enjoyed this series! I love the trio of friends in this story, it started out with Philippa in book one loosing her friend and in comes Daisy and in the second book Philippa again loses her friend because she is a fairy and Robyn comes into the story as does Daisy and in this third book, we have all three girls together and a wonderful story about what friendship really is.

This book had a more mysterious twist to it then the books that came before it....I felt some suspense both a

This is the third Philippa Fisher story but it can easily be read as a stand-alone. Philippa, our heroine, is spending the Christmas holidays in the village of Ravenleigh where she first met Robyn on a previous holiday. Robyn and Daisy are her best friends but Daisy lives ATC (above the clouds) as she is a “fairy god-sister”.

Unfortunately, Daisy and Philippa inadvertently swap places and are obliged to test the boundaries of their friendship by completing a very challenging mission involving th

I think young children would enjoy these books a lot, and they contain great themes of friendship and loyalty and problem solving. They aren't too cheesy or shallow.

The only reason I gave this book three stars is because, as an adult, after reading the three books in rapid succession, I was getting a little weary of the obvious-ness of the themes--but again, this would likely be a good thing for young readers. Finally, at the end, the plots seemed to get more and more convoluted, which drove my

Well, my dd enjoyed it. I think fairies should be magical creatures. These are running, or at least intervening, in the human world, more like ancient gods. And they use MagiCell phones and other techie means of getting around and communicating. I prefer a traditional Victorian fairy! ;-)

We started this book, not realizing that it was the third book in the Philippa Fisher series. But we soon realized that we were missing out on a lot of background information and the story wasn't making all that much sense. So we decided to suspend this one for a bit and backtrack to the first story...

I absolutely love this book it's full of adventure. Philippa and her fairy friend, Daisy are off to save the world! They must go find the stolen stone fairy that has been taken to a world where time is frozen. They must hurry or else they will be stuck in there forever. Do you think they will find the stone fairy in time?

Thought it was quite a good way to end the series. Best in the 3.
Is this the same thing as Phillipa Fisher and the Fairy's Promise with a different title and cover? I'm guessing it is… but now I'm kind of mad because I like this cover better than the one I have…

It was a wonderful edition to Liz Kessler's series, just as sweet and imaginative as the other Philippa Fisher books. Full of detail and with a twisting plot, this book was quite enjoyable to read.

“The woods were deserted that day.
The stones stood still and silent, as though they were waiting for something. At the center of them all, a jagged piece of amber glowed in the growing darkness. Lights fizzed softly around it, turning pink, orange, purple, blue.
No one saw it. No one ever did. Why would they? No one knoew about its magic, not anymore. They had forgotten all about such magic a long, long time ago. About the same time they stopped believing in faries.
How foolish.”
“But there would be no confrontation the next day. And for Tommy Williams, there would be no school, either. Because the moment he walked through the gap in the stones to leave the circle, something quiet unexpected happened.
Tommy, holding tightly on to his rock, took the step that divided the inside of the circle from the outside - and disappeared.

The woods suddenly felt colder than usual. The darkness hung more heavily.
The amber was gone - and now nothing would ever be the same.”
