I received an advance reader copy of this book to read in exchange for an honest review via netgalley and the publishers.

Bad Fairy is a fun short fairy story for children aged 8 - 10 years.
The adventure is short, sweet and simple but has a great moral to it. The word building is fantastic and the little land of fantasy and adventure is so cleverly plotted and planned out.
This book is a happy ever after story and shows children they can work with others they don't like or get along with if the en

I read this story during a very emotional time (in the middle of the Black Lives Matter resurgence to seek justice for murdered black people at the hands of law enforcement) and it was a nice reprieve. The message of the story sounds simple enough and yet, sadly, people of all ages still need to be taught it, thus the emotional time I was going through when reading it.

This bright and whimsical tale of fairies, brownies, trolls, and more carries many messages within its fun pages. The characters

A Cute Story with a moral.

While this is a little old for my grandchildren, it's a cute story just as advertised. She doesn't like rules. She has trouble with little fairy boys causing trouble and teasing her (just like little human boys) Herr world-building is cute and detailed. A good story and I'd advise it to boys or girls of the 8 to 10 years old group.

Thank you so much to The Wild Rose Press for the ebook to read and review

This was honestly nothing like I expected the story to be at all, however it was pleasantly adorable.

Thistle a fairy that got branded a ‘bad fairy’ at school gets the opportunity to prove to all that she really isn’t a bad fairy all without realising she was doing it. The story is filled with so much, it has great characters you don’t dislike any of them. It has such a heart to the story and you can connect easily to the f

Now how can a fairy be bad? They are kind and helpful and loving. Right? In Author Elaine Kaye’s story, Bad Fairy, we learn a lot about the world of the fairy.

Thistle is not a happy fairy. Why? Because she has to go to school to learn how to be a good fairy, since she is considered to be a bad fairy. To make matters even worse, the teacher gives them homework for the weekend. She claims it will keep a lot of them out of trouble. They are to write a new rule for Fairy Land and the student who wri

Definitely a fun read. Thistle isn't a "bad fairy" but she does have a reputation for doing things her own way and maybe not quite following the rules exactly. The descriptions of how the fairies live, their houses, their clothes, the food they eat are lovely. I also really liked all the various fairy names, from the Sheriff, Mr. Webbing to the two really bad fairies, Viner and Needles. Watch out for them, I think they are big trouble and will show up again!

This little story has humor, adventure

Disclaimer: I received this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This book is Junie B Jones meet Babysitter Club's with some pixie dust and fairy magic mixed in to it.

I feel like this story would have really benefitted from some illustrations to capture younger audience's interest. Nevertheless, the story of spunky little Thistle was still enjoyable.
