Forest fires are coming to blue moon so Jessie came to the realm to find a wish stone. But the realm creatures are not allowed to go under the sea because that is the rules. A mirmade guided her to the under water castle were Lorca lived. She had gathered all the wish stones. Lorca the mirmade used to be Coral Ripple the mirmades older sister. The magic fish made Jessie's wish come true and the wish was that their would be rain so the fires would go out.

This series was a great introduction into the love of reading for my girls. My daughter hated reading and was hooked on the first book. I decided to read it to make sure it was a "good" book and loved the character development and plot. Another good book you might like if you like this one is Into the Land of the Unicorns. That series is excellent for adult and children.
Cute story that my niece really loved. She loved the change in scenery for the book. The story was still in the realm, but it was set in Under-Sea which was fun to have some of the same loved characters, but to meet some new ones.

Again, this is a story for older children to tween age girls. It has a very good flow and is a very quick read.

Recommends it for: 8- to 10-year-old girls who like fairies
Recommended to Tamra by: my 8-year-old daughter
I've been wishing my daughter wouldn't read these fluff fairy books, but I was basing my entire opinion of the series on two things: the pictures on the covers, and the Disney fairy books. (I know, I know. But sometimes you CAN judge a book by its cover.)

Then I read this book, because my 8-year-old daughter said it was THE BEST in the series (she loves mermaids even more than she loves fairies). And it was fun! Unlike the Disney fairy books, Emily Rodda actually puts thought into her storyline,

great story

What a great book! Who knew Lorca was the sister!
This twist on the "Little Mermaid" has a surprise ending.......

One thing though: I don't understand why Granny is so happy with her lot in life, but Lorca is so unhappy with hers. The book doesn't explain this. (Could it really be that a good man is all it takes for a happy life???? Not something we want to teach our daughters...)

In this book, a girl named Jessie goes to the Fairy Realm to find a wish-stone to put out the fires in the mountains. Each wish-stone can only grant three wishes. Wish-stones wash up on the bay of the Under-Sea in the Fairy Realm. I like this book because Jessie puts out the fire in the mountains. By: Felicity
Maylin now likes these books. We read the third wish for her book report it was student choice and she chose this book because we already read one and two. I like the imagination in these books they are fun and sometimes pretty predictable but they are great for little girls.
I would give this book (and the rest of the series) two or three stars. It is a really good book, for younger kids (7-9).
For me, I enjoyed it when I was younger, but now, it was.....interesting. Totally great series for young girls. Pretty easy read too.

Recommends it for: anyone who likes reading little girl books
this one was pretty good. it kind of reminded me of like a mystery book. it had you guessing what was gonna happen next. and when you think you have it, most likely you do. but it's good to guess and be right.
This book was the bomb i loved it and i think i read it about 2 times!! It was great and i loved it and wished that owned it. I guess that i like books that aren't true.
