Recommends it for: beginning readers and parents reading with them

Pish and Posh are friends who try to delve into fairy magic--only it goes awry and it even becomes funny after a while. A fun book!

Recommends it for: everyone
A charming "Odd Couple" series for early readers. Practical-minded Pish reads books from the beginning; Posh's impulsiveness gets her into trouble.
