I absolutely loved Pixie Tricks as a child. It was one of the first books I ever really got into. It was easy to read, fun, adventurous, witty, and I loved the characters. As a little girl who doesn't love fairies,especially mischievous fairies? Plus as a bonus there are stickers in each book, so you can keep track of all the fairies that were caught throughout the series. I suggest this book to read (on second thought it is such a simple book they could probably read it themselves) to your kids ...more

i don't remember when i read this series was so long ago!! it was my first series and i loved them SO much! for young children, they bring out imagination and put the right amount of adventure out. I wished i had met a fairy when i was small, so i could go through what violet goes through! it was such an adventure....

I like how she met the pixie.A frog ate her favorite ball and hopped into the big tree. And as she was crying Sprite the pixie gave back her ball and told her about all the evil pixies let loose and how they need to bring them back.
This brings around a whole new wave of nostalgia. I loved these books as a child and was completely wrapped up in them. I had forgotten all about them until now, and I'm so glad I found them again :')
This series was one of my absolute favourites as a child and I'm so excited that I've found them!
Fun chapter books to read to small children who enjoy tales about mischievous pixie fairies.
