Review for Fairy Dust by WJ Scott

Book Description

 August 2, 2014  6 - 12
Mischief and magic. Tinkers and fairies. Do you believe in magic?

Farran Sherwin cupped a hand to his ear and said, “I can’t hear you. Do you believe in fairies?”
The hall erupted into chaos as children sprang out of their seats, spilling popcorn under their feet as they yelled, “Yes!”
The tinker staggered as if he had been struck by a sound-wave and the children giggled.
Farran cocked his head. “Listen. Can you hear someone?”
A hush settled over the children. They perched on the edge of their seats, palms gripping the armrests. Their faces were pinched tight as they gazed up at the stage.
He widened his eyes and whispered, “She’s coming.”

Evelyn, an orphan, doesn’t believe in magic anymore, but then the meddlesome tinkers arrive in her village and change her world forever.

A bedtime tale to delight younger readers or those still young at heart.

A heart-lifting tale suitable for junior readers or a perfect bedtime read by parents and grandparents for younger children.

“Do you believe in fairies?”

Fairy Dust is a short story about a child who lost her parents and lives with her aunt and uncle. She is introverted, hurt from her loss. At a magic show a man named Farran tries to get her to speak and enjoy the fun like the other children, but she says she doesn't believe in magic. It is then that Farran finds a way to help her. Fairies have always been known to attract children and adults alike. The mysteries of their very existence fascinates the world, but to a child with a great imagination anything is possible. That is what Farran shows and in so doing helps the girl believe in something in which she thought she had lost by a tragedy.

This story is whimsical and light hearted. Children of all ages who love fairies will adore the message the author provides and even though the ending is a mystery all in itself, it is easy to imagine what the girl might have saw on her fairy adventure into the unknown.
