Two fairy friends from different backgrounds think that the other has the better life, and they decide to swap places. But they discover that it’s always best to just be yourself.

This is a lovely story with a beautiful message: we are all different and we should celebrate our differences. The gorgeous illustrations, also by the author, have a magical, ethereal quality which is just perfect for the subject matter.

A great gift idea for your little fairy.

I received this book in return for an honest

Two little fairies meet and would rather live the life of the other. The house fairy would rather fly high but the forest fairy would rather have a house over head. The two decide to make a fairy wish and change places. But they find not everything is as simple as you first see.

This is a wonderful story about two fairies that think the grass is greener on the other side of the lawn. But then they realize that there are other responsibilities than just flight or roofs. This story is beautifully i

A delightful little tale about being happy with who you are. With colorful, fun illustrations and a sweet, rhyming story, this one captured my little's attention and even inspired a few questions about these entertaining fairies and the lesson they learn as they switch places. This is a great length for a bedtime read and is captivating enough for even the shortest of attention spans. Definitely a hit in this house.

Fairy Wishes 1-2-3 is a cute story for children (and adults). It has lots of really wonderful pictures that make the story come to life, which, in my opinion, makes it even better. It's a short read, something you can get through in about ten or fifteen minutes.

Fairy Wishes 1-2-3 is about two fairies who wish they could switch places. They're envious of the other, so they decide to go for it. They trade places and become the other fairy. It's only after they trade places that they realize they

This was such a wonderful book. It actually has a lesson and a good one at that. The book is about 2 very different Fairy's. Both are different in every way, color, where they live, and how they live. One day they decide they want to trade lives. They are envious of the others lifestyle, so they make their wish. Soon afterwards though they decide they miss their own lifestyle and want to trade back. Its a grass is greener type story.

Michele has done an amazing job with this story. It is written
