Another good story about fairies, magic and unusual friendships. Adventures in this book are out of this world and quite a bit fascinating. Enjoyed it. Will read the third book soon.

In this adventure Philippa and her family Go on a vacation that Philippa earned in a talent show in the previous book. Along the way Philippa meets great and interesting new people. Like Robin. Philippa soon finds out about Robins dad and his secret. Philippa then has to find a way to save Daisy from certain doom.

I thinks it was a great addition to Philippa Fisher's Fairy Godsister. It had a great plot and was very exciting. These books are cute,worthwhile...and fun to read. I like reading cute books, books that do not take too much thought, but flow nicely. I will definitely read the next book.

Philippa Fisher and the Dream-Maker’s Daughter by Liz Kessler was a wonderful book.
If you weren’t quite sure fairies existed then this book will make you a believer. Philippa Fisher has a fairy god-sister named Daisy. The problem is she can’t tell anyone. She’s already lost her best friend Charlotte by letting her know she believes in fairies. When Philippa wins vacation tickets for herself and her p

The book, "The Dream Makers Daughter," is a fantasy written by Liz Kessler. Liz also has another finished series, "Emily Windsnap." Also, there has been another book in this series, this being the second.
This book was about a girl named Phillipa, who goes on a family vacation after winning tickets. During the vacation, Phillipa meets a girl her age, Robyn. The small village where they met is Robyn's hometown. A fairy named Daisy who has had past experiences with Phillipa is on a quest involvi

I loved this book! I enjoy this writer's books but this one was really good and with a unique storyline that was really enticing!

It was heart breaking at points and touching but still a true fairy tale with a happy ending. I think this is the best book I have read by this author so far. I am looking forward to the next installment in this series.

You don't necessarily have to read the first book to read this book, though it is the second book in the series. I enjoy series and try to read in orde

Recommends it for: "Magic of Friendship" stories fans
Recommended to Savannah by: I'm a Liz Kessler fan who read the first Philippa Fisher
Honestly, I'm very surprised this book has better ratings than Liz Kessler's other book: The Tail of Emily Windsnap. All in all, the book was ok, but there were some parts I found annoying. The first issue is this book starts out REALLY SLOW. I put it down for a few months because I got so bored of the beginning where they pretty much do nothing but describe the woods, and then throw in the butterfly. Then, the rest of the book is pretty much ruined because the surprise plot is given away in the ...more

This book was the best book I have ever read. It is such a page turner! Yesterday I couldn't put it down and read 180 pages!!! I recommend this for girls any age. I would assume that boys wouldn't want to read about fairies... but maybe I'm wrong! I would reccomend that you read the first book of the series, "Phillipa Fisher's Fairy Godsister". Read this book it's amazing!

This was a fun book about a girl who still believes in fairies. Actually, she has a best friend who is a fairy. Because of her belief and friendship with fairies, she is sent on a mission to help another girl to come tor grips with the death of her mother. It a story of friendship and grief; of dreams and heartache.

I read this book out loud to my daughters. All three of us enjoyed the book. There were a few nights I had to read more than one chapter because they really wanted to know what happe

I love this book and I fell in love with it as soon as I picked it off the book shelf. However I wish I knew where to find the very first book of this series. Excellent book 5 STARS!

A cute story that Alice checked out from the library at school. I'd recommend reading the first book before this one. This one doesn't stand as well on its own.

I regret not reading the first book in this series. After enjoying this one so much I think the next time I'm going to get all the books and read them in order.
Aside from the mystery and magic involved with fairies and dreams, this is a great story about strong and powerful friendship. It's also about learning to grieve for lost ones and lost relationships.
The settings were alive, the characters pleasant, and the story enjoyable. You can read them separate but I believe you get to enjoy them bet

Philippa is still amazed that she won the talent show at her school.But everybody knows that. What they didn't know was that she had help from her fairy godmother (or fairy godsister since she is the just young), Daisy. Philippa knows she might never really see Daisy again. Now, Philippa has won a vacation with her parents. They go to a small town where Philippa befriends a girl who is a lot like her. But now, Philippa keeps having nightamares about a woman she doesn't even know, learns the trut ...more

A good follow-up to the first in the series. This book, like the one before it, has good things to say about not being afraid to be yourself, while at the same time not reducing the message to a fluffy inspirational phrase. It's truly hard to be yourself for people who identify with Philippa's people-pleasing nature, and it doesn't happen all at once by any stretch of the imagination. Kessler does a reasonable job of conveying this by not making it too fluffy and by making Philippa's journey tow ...more

This book is the 2nd book in the Phillippa Fisher series and it is full of suprises! The things that you would think have nothing to do with each other are the things that have the most to do with each other! I would recomend this book to girls who have read the first book in the series and girls who enjoy the Emily Windsnap books.I would recmend the series to girls who are 9-13.:)

This is the second book that I read in this series. It is a delightful read. Girls from about 9 years on will love this. It has ideas for friendship, getting past grief, forgiving others and developing trust. It is a story about being committed to a friend and learning how to deal with loss. The magic of fairies makes it even better!

4.5 stars. A bit more complicated and somber plot than the first book, and we didn't get to see Phillipa interact with her fairy friend as much as before. That was the charm of book one. Still a fun read though, and I'm looking forward to starting book three soon.

My third grade daughter labeled this "her favorite book ever" and I do see why she thought so. For a children's book, it combined character development with a dose of magic and that is what makes it such an endearing book.
