The team of Michelle Eastman and Kevin Richter have done it again, with the second installment in the Dust Fairy Tales series.
This long-awaited sequel is a gem, front to back!

Here, the reader will find an important and universal message about individuality, originality, and self-acceptance, all the while enjoying Michelle Eastman's imaginative story and catchy rhymes – perfectly metered through this magical tale's twists and turns.

I'm somewhat of an "illustration snob" and often take issue with

This is the second book, written by Michelle Eastman and brilliantly illustrated by Kevin Richter, I've read and thoroughly enjoyed, even though I'm well past the 4 - 8 years old age range it's intended for.
I read the book in pdf format, received from the author inviting me to review it, and was much impressed with its exceptional quality and presentation.
I have no hesitation in recommending this and the previous book 'The Legend of the Dust Bunnies').

I LOVE THIS BOOK!!! I am going to start by saying it is a 5 star HIT! It is about finding out who you are and who are your people. It is about never changing who you are to fit into a group. It is about loving everything about yourself and how doing just that will attract the people who will truly appreciate you!!! I adore Aggie and see myself in her. I cannot wait to use this book in my classroom and talk to the kids about all the wonderful lessons sweet and unique Aggie has to teach us! In add ...more

I am SO LOVING this author!

What a sweet book! There are fairies which spread dust, play games, or are simply as pretty as can be. And after reading this book, kids will be on the hunt to find them in their own houses. Well, except for a little fairy named Aggie who has a hobby which doesn't quite fit in; she plays bagpipes.

The most capturing thing about this book is the illustrations. They are simply a delight to gaze through and be swept away into a fairy world . Even the littlest will have no problem falling into the st

Dust Fairy Tales – Absolutely Aggie by Michelle R. Eastman, illustrated by Kevin Richter – Kindergarten and up – This is my second time enjoying the change to review a Michelle Eastman book. The first book was a review of The Legend of Dust Bunnies, a Fairy’s Tale. I did receive this book to review, lucky me. I enjoyed this new celebration of independence. Aggie is an very cute little fairy who just wants to share her enthusiasm and music with others… but since her music is different from others ...more

I was very privileged to receive a PDF copy of this beautifully illustrated book by the wonderful children's author Michelle R. Eastman. Thank you Michelle.

This is the second book in 'The Dust Fairy Tales' the first being 'Legend of the Dust Bunnies'. Like the first story the main characters in these books are no ordinary fairies, they are different with their own individual styles. These are stories that some children will very easily relate to, especially when they are young and finding it har

Absolutely Delightful!!

What a wonderfully delightful Children’s Picture book. “Absolutely Aggie” is book two in the Dust Fairy Tales, by talented author, Michelle Eastman.

I loved this book with its great lesson on individuality, trying to fit in and feeling rejection. It is accompanied by lively, colourful illustrations by gifted artist, Kevin Richter.

Aggie is messy. Some fairies don’t like that. Aggie plays the bagpipes too loud (and sometimes misses notes). Some fairies don’t like that. Aggie

Dust Fairy Tales: Absolutely Aggie’ by author, Michelle R. Eastman, is another delightful read. This second book is, also, beautifully illustrated by Kevin Richter. Once again, Michelle R. Eastman has written a creative rhyming book, with lots of action, imagination, and magic.

This book tells the tale of an insecure fairy, who wants nothing more than to fit in. It is a great read for the young and the young at heart. I highly recommend ‘Dust Fairy Tales: Absolutely Aggie.’

Aggie dances to the beat of her own drum—which happens to be bagpipes. There’s nothing dainty about bagpipes--if you're a fairy girl, not being dainty is a no, no in the fairy-world. Aggie tries hard, she changes her style and the way she expresses herself to be accepted by the other fairies–but of course that doesn’t bring her happiness... ~ Such a charming, relatable story with wonderful illustrations.
Laura Jensen-Kimball
Aggie is a typical young fairy who is a bit insecure. She knows what she likes, but not everyone is a fan. Absolutely Aggie finds herself and happiness through this witty tale told in rhyme. Beautifully illustrated, this book will give your child that extra boost of confidence they need to be themselves.

I love Absolutely Aggie! This book is a great tool to help empower kids to be themselves and worry less about fitting in. Richter’s illustrations are vibrant and expressive and bring the story to life. This book should be on every young girl’s reading list as a great example of how we should celebrate our differences, and find those who value us not try to change us. 5 stars plus!

Aggie is a bagpipe-playing dust fairy who doesn't quite fit in. But by staying true to herself, Aggie finds happiness by playing her bagpipes to the beat of her own drum. Absolute Aggie is a wonderful book about individuality and respect for others who are different. Kids will love getting to know Aggie. Without a doubt, there's dust fairy magic in the air.

The description of Aggie made me relate to her so much (she definitely marches to her own beat). Again, the rhyming and cadence made this easy to read aloud. It will definitely entertain young children (it sure entertained me!). Another five star book!

Written by Michelle Eastman, Dust Fairy Tales: Absolutely Aggie is a fantasy picture book. The story follows a dust fairy named Aggie as she tries to fit in with her peers. Absolutely Aggie is a wonderful story with an important lesson for children.

Aggie is a lovable misfit that feels like an outcast. No matter how hard she tries to fit in, she isn’t like the other fairies. Her bagpipes are too loud and her clothes don’t fit right. Even her hair doesn’t behave as it should.

Feeling alone, Aggie t

Some books just capture your heart the minute you hold them in your hands. Looking at Aggie with her missing teeth, freckled face and torn pants on the front cover had me cheering for her before I even opened the book. This book will be used in my second grade classroom by:

• being a beginning of the year read aloud on accepting others, being comfortable with who you are and not changing to fit in.
• lessons on getting your mind ready to read by using the front and back covers.
• story elements

Author Michelle R. Eastman and Illustrator Kevin Richter presents "Dust Fairy Tales: Absolutely Aggie." This is an adorable story about a little dust fairy named Aggie that wants to fit in with the other dust fairies but just doesn't quite make it for many reasons. Feeling left out, she finds a friend that helps her find her way.
The story line and illustrations will delight and truly engage young readers.

The Picture Book Review:

Absolutely Aggie is for anyone who has ever felt like an outsider and quietly plants a seed of hope inside all readers that if they hang in there, be themselves, and be patient — they will find a way to thrive. It’s also a great story for those that aren’t outsiders to get to spend some time as others who don’t quite fit in and get an idea of what it must feel like.

Lines from Absolutely Aggie stay with you long after you’ve read it, but that you’ll read it so many times y
