I almost skipped this after the first few pages. Jack has troubles and gets bullied at school. His parents actively dislike him. He whinges. He's short and weak. blah, blah, blah. Oh, and he has a faerie companion named Puck who only he can see. This did not look good.

Then, on his thirteenth birthday he masters the bully. When he gets home he's attacked by two goblins. Puck lets him in on a little secret. With Puck, a brownie

A completely enchanting, heartwarming and imaginative novella

There’s no doubt about it, D.M. Andrews s a great storyteller! His characters practically jump off the page producing wonderfully colourful images of his faerie creatures and their hidden realm; they come to life with each turn of the page. His use of mythical names further persuades you to continue reading this magical tale which you will find yourself utterly captivated by from the off.

The story is narrated by the protagonist Jack Ma

This exciting tale for early teens takes the form of a Quest story. Jack and his school friend Steph set off to discover Jack’s true parentage. They have help in the form of Puck, from the Realm of Faerie but are similarly hindered by a number of creatures sent by a dark enemy. The latter’s aim is to prevent the success of the quest and to kill Jack. When we learn of Jack’s real parents it’s not surprising that he has some unusual gifts.

This story is beautifully told and includes creatures from

Jack MacFadden and the Faerie Realm is an imaginative and delightful tale. In places,I felt there was a lack of continuity,which confused me some what, but it didn’t diminish my enjoyment.
In D M Andrews writing, there is always enjoyable humour, and this book is no exception.
I liked the characters, particularly Old Tom; he came across as really cute. I do feel the story could have been fleshed out more. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it.

A fantastic short kids story! I loved the characters and how we were introduced to a few of the different types of fairies. There wasn't a lot of depth to the story but no less than would be expected in a children's story and especially a short one. But each character was wonderfully 'filled out' and were very believable. I'd love to know more about Jack and the rest of the fairies. Definitely worth a read.

I liked this short book. The author has created a fun world that every young child dreams about.

The overall plot is strong, with some well written characters too. The descriptions of the scenery are brilliant also.

When you read this, you must remember that it's not really aimed at adults but more for the younger generation.

Overall a great read for all abilities.

D.M. Andrews has been drawing maps, writing stories, and coming up with weird ideas since the age of twelve. Although fantasy features in most of the author's writing, he also has a keen passion for history (especially for his native land of England), genealogy, mythology and even political philosophy.
