Do you believe in Fairies? And a GIVEAWAY (for later!)

I know you ALL love fairies and I would like to introduce you to the The Knot Fairy by Bobbie Hinman.

Bobbie is a follower of my blog and when she found out how much I love children's books she asked me if I would like to do a book review. Of course I was excited and said, YES! You know it's a special day when a purple fairy travels to Florida to live in a purple house! 

I'd like to share some of the fun of each book over the next few weeks and then we will have a GIVEAWAY of one of her wonderful books!

Her first book is The Knot Fairy and it really is a magical story with wonderful watercolor illustrations!

It's all about every day children, with ordinary problems....using their imaginations.

With the CD playing in the background, you can't help but smile! (it's included with the book)

The Knot Fairy is definitely my first choice, with The Sock Fairy a close second! I would love to be entered for the drawing. If I win, I'll take it to school to read to the kids.

I can't wait to see more of that book. My daughter has curly hair like that and we used to tell her that the knot fairy visited her in her sleep too.

What pretty illustrations in these books..and such nice details and storylines! I thought the "sock fairy" book was really cute and I just know a boy would love the one called "fart fairy" ..lol...so I'd love to have that one for my grandson when he was a little older.

Nothing like a fairy that comes to your rescue on a Saturday night.
That is really special that she asked you to review the book Diane! She must have known you have been a Queen in Training and you were totally equipped for that!
Thanks for sharing the whimsy and magic. I'll hop over to her site tonight...poof...right now!

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

You absolutely KNOW I have fairies in my garden. But guess what? Last night, I was outside with the dogs. And some mice/rats were scurrying around on my back fence behind my pretties like my red mirror! Horror of horrors! What do I do? Must have come over from the construction that tore down the trees down the block.

It's Just Dottie said...

Don't you remember what Peter Pan told Windy about fairies? I believe in faries.They live in my garden. They often have a dance on summer nights. The butterflies and the bees make a lovely little breeze and the rabbits stand about and hold the lights.
I adore all of her books!!!
