This time, he stole the jewels from Queen Tatiana's crown. The jewel fairies can't do their job without those jewels. The jewels are hidden in the human world, and there are goblins guarding them. Thankfully, Rachel and Kirsty are good friends with the fairies and will help them get back their jewels. In this novel, they help Sophie, the Sapphire fairy, get back her sapphire that grants wishes.
The length of this book is good for young readers just beginning chapter books. The text in it is a little larger than normal, and there are still some illustrations included. However, these novels are very formulaic. In the entire series, Jack Frost always hides valuable magic items from the fairies, and the same two human girls help the fairies find and get those items back. While the repetitive format is comforting to young readers, and makes them feel good about being able to read this form, it stops challenging them after a while. If a new villain, or human characters were introduced, it would really revitalize the series. Boys will not enjoy reading this at all, because the only male characters are bad guys. As it stands, this is an okay series for young girls just beginning chapter books. It is recommended for purchase, but only because there is not much material in this particular category....more
