Recommends it for: untuk semua anak yang bermimpi menjadi peri
Yang kaubutuhkan hanyalah rasa percaya dan....sedikit debu peri!!!

Kisah kehidupan para peri teman-teman Tinker Bell dari Never Land. Ternyata peri itu dikelompokan dalam banyak bakat. Lucu banget dech, ada peri bakat-lampu, peri bakat-air, peri bakat-terbang, peri bakat-masak, peri bakat-kurir, peri bakat-panen, peri bakat-melayani dan juga peri bakat-kebun seperti Lily ini. Dannnn masih banyak lagi peri bakat lainnya.

Dalam kisah ini, diceritakan bagaimana Lily sangat senang berkebun. Kecintaann

baca buku ini sebelum tidur, dan aku pun bermimpi terbang bersama peri-peri yang lain..

dibutuhkan keberanian yg besar untuk meyakini sesuatu yang dihujat banyak orang.

seperti yang diceritakan disini, sepertinya memang hanya kita sendiri yg tau apa yg terbaik untuk diri kita.

pengorbanan lily yg terus saja percaya bahwa tunas barunya tidak membahayakan, akhirnya berbuah manis karna tunas itu justru tunas yg sangat langka.. pengorbanan yg berbuah manis..

the title of this book is "lily's pesky plant" by kristen larson. this book was very weird because it all started with a seed that lily found in the forest. she had decided to plant the seed in her backyard. then she noticed that after days and weeks her backyard started to white pink things everywhere. the other fairy's were starting to get runny noise, watery eyes and started sneezing.I give this book four stars because I think it was a good book.

Lily's third chapter book. She wanted so badly to have a chapter book with her name in it! Hopefully we can move on to better literature quickly...

Well, I give it 3 1/2 stars. Lily gives it "100". :-)

When Lily finds a strange seed in the forest, little does she know the commotion and hostility it would create or how rare the pesky plant would be.

Awalnya saya melihat cover buku ini mengingatkan saya pada buku Disney yang selalu mengisahkan mengenai peri maupun khayalan anak kecil. Namun, buku ini entah kenapa menarik perhatianku untuk membacanya.

Buku ini mengisahkan perjuangan seorang peri kebun untuk mempertahankan pohon aneh yang selalu membuat masalah di lingkungan peri dimana dia tinggal. Nama peri kebun tersebut adalah Lily. Lily merupakan sosok peri yang selalu menghabiskan waktunya bersama dengan tanaman yang dia rawat dengan sepe

Kalo kamu pecinta dongeng, mungkin bakalan suka sama cerita ini. Penggamaran tentang dunia peri benarbenar diceritakan dengan baik. Selain itu, beberapa gambar yang ada di dalam buku ikut mengembangkan imajinasi kita. Absolutely, i love this book <3

Bercerita tentang Lily (peri yang memiliki bakat berkebun) yang menemukan suatu benih misterius di hutan. Benih itu berwarna putih kemerahmudaan seperti mutiara. Awalnya, Lily ragu untuk menanamnya. Namun, karena penasaran ia pun menanamnya. Dibant

Beli buku ini pertama karena sampul bukunya berwarna HIJAU.
lustrasi tokoh utamanya (Lily) mengingatkan aku pada masa kecilku.
Hitam, berambut keriting, suka bertelanjang kaki.

Buku ini bercerita tentang kehidupan para peri di Never-land.
Lily, seorang peri-bakat-kebun, suatu hari menemukan sebuah bibit aneh di hutan. Lily kemudian membawa bibit itu pulang dan menanamnya di kebun miliknya. Dibantu oleh Iris, peri-bakat-kebun yang tidak memiliki

Di sebuah negeri yang bernama Never Land tempat para putri duyung asyik bermain Disana terdapat tempat yang bernama Pixie Hollow.Disana hidup ratusanperi perempuan dan laki-laki.
Suatu hari salah satu peri yang bernama Lily dan Iris jalan-jalan di sekitar kebun Lily,karena setiap peri pasti memiliki kebun.Disaat jalan-jalan itu mereka menemukan bebih yang aneh,kemudian Lily membawa dan menanam di kebunnya.Sesaat kemudian benih itu tumbuh besar tetapi layu,kuning,rapuh,dan baunya membuat penghuni
Looks are certainly not everything (though the problems the Ever tree was causing were bad enough).
Nice it was settled that way, and nicer even that Iris got a friend.

I really love these Disney Fairies books. Each one has a good lesson for children to learn. Lily is under a lot of pressure from her friends to remove a plant just because it isn't something the other fairies are used to. They cannot see the true, inner beauty of the plant because the outside of the plant is ugly. Boy, oh boy, are they ever surprised at the end of the book.

Once again, the Disney Storyboard Artists have done a spectacular job with the artwork. The story is well-written and easy

This is one of the books in the Fairies series from Walt Disney. Lily, a plant-talent fairy, finds a seed while she's out and brings it back and plants it in her garden. Normally that wouldn't be a problem, but once the seed sprouts and grows it develops into a plant that stinks terribly, then ends up shedding pollen and making everyone sneeze.

The other fairies want her to get rid of the plant but she doesn't want to, curious about what the plant will develop into. It turns out really good for

After reading other fairy books, this one is a delight. There is such originality in the way these Disney fairy books are written. Sure, you still have some typical characters like other fairy books, but many of the characters in these aren't so typical. They have more depth. Like the "mean" fairy Vidia, who really isn't that mean all the time. And Disney fairies aren't that clumsy. They do get into trouble, but that is the fun of these books. For example, in this one Lily, a garden fairy, finds ...more

Lily isn't like the other fairies, she's more into enjoying her plants and less into fashion. That love of garden gives her the best garden in Never Land. So when gardenless garden fairy Iris comes to tell her stories, Lily takes a walk.

On that walk she finds a strange seed and decides to just plant it and see what it becomes. What it becomes is an ugly pain in the butt. Lily doesn't care, she loves it anyway. As the situation becomes more dire, the fairies begin to take sides.

Another wonderful addition to the surprisingly enjoyable Tales of Pixie Hollow series, this book stood out from the previous three because it's ending wasn't all that easy to predict. The focus on the unique relationship between the two females characters was delightful and three dimensional and unexpected. This series continue to respect the audience it is intended for, while also being interesting enough for all ages. I strongly recommend.

Recommends it for: anyone with a fairy or princess in their life
My 7 year old fairy princess LOVED this book. While the plot was good and the storyline uplifting, I think what she loved most was it was about fairies and talked about Tinkerbell. Not the best reason to like a book but she did stay interested and remembered the plot line from night to night.

This book is part of a series of Fairy Princess books. We have read 3 or 4 of them and each has brought my 7 year old happiness.

Lily, a garden fairy discovers a queer seed and decides to plant it in her personal garden, which, to the fairies of Pixie Hollow, is deemed to be one of the best in Never Land. Yet when the new plant begins to excreete a stinky smell and covers it's pollen all over Pixie Hollow, the other fairies beg Lily to cut it down, and quickly! A great story of friendship and getting along with others, and sticking to your beliefs.

This book was about lily having a plant that caused so much trouble but in the end it didn't 'coz it grew fruits.
I liked this book because it was interesting how much trouble the plant caused. It was nice when the troubles ended and everyone started liking the plant and started plucking the fruits for their special meals.

Okay I’ll admit it I mostly bought this book because it’s cute and has a fairy on it. It’s one of those cute stories with a good moral lesson based on your favorite characters kind of books. The perfect kind of thing for an 8 year-old girl.

This book was cute. It was about a fairy that had a problem with one of her plants. It was a very simple book with little deeper meaning but a easy and entertaining read. It would be a very good book for little girls. I liked this book but would never read it again.

Rating ala Chris. The girls really enjoy these Pixie Hollow books. They are actually well-written and teach nice little morals without moralizing. All I know is when Chris reads them to the girls, I hear frequent peals of laughter.
