The Fairy Rescue League

Rate this book
Hobin is the boggart of Ellwin Hall. Not so very long ago, there were boggarts in all the big houses, but not anymore. Now there's just Hobin - the last of the fairies. Or so twelve year old Adam Ellwin has always believed. Then one day he happens upon a starving fairy and brings him home. Hobin isn't at all pleased to share his family or Ellwin Hall, and when Hobin's not happy, everyone knows about it. But Hobin going on the rampage is only the start of Adam's problems. It turns out that there are more fairies out there - and they all have a knack for getting Adam into trouble. So does Sophie, Adam's best friend, with her crackpot idea about the Fairy Rescue League...

This book made me happy. It’s a short, fun book for kids that was — well, it was fun! The subject of fairies is always a winner, but I also liked the characters and their relationships with each other. Adam and his family were quite entertaining, and I thought they interacted well. The friendships were also dealt with nicely (predictably, but nicely), the banter between Sophie and Adam believable of longtime friends.

I enjoyed the stubbornness of the fairies, and how Adam keeps getting into trouble because he says things without thinking and soon regrets it. ‘Why didn’t you just unplug it?’ he asks their boggart, after the little fairy tried to bite through an appliance cord. ‘Unplug? What’s unplug?’ Oops!

Cute story. I would read the sequel.

I enjoyed this book, a small volume, but packed full of good characters doing interesting things. The story revolves around Adam Ellwin and his friend Sophie, plus assorted homeless fairy folk, who Adam and Sophie take pity on, unintentionally inviting them back to Adam's home, Ellwin Hall, an ancestral pile his family are struggling to maintain. The assorted problems caused by the fairies as they arrive constantly get Adam into trouble with his parents.

As a child I'd have loved this, as an adult I'm charmed by it. The author is an old fannish friend of mine, who is now doing some very good work. A second Fairy Rescue League book, The Wildwood, is also available.
