‘Everything is perfect, from the art to the plot to the words. One of the best children’s books I’ve ever seen.’

‘This is an absolutely delightful children’s book that’s strong across the board: vivid, whimsical illustrations, a lovely story, a great layout that is eye-catching both in words and pictures, and some nice underlying themes about being true to yourself and how there is value in many things.

‘The best Christmas books are those that capture the magic and joy of the holiday, and this one certainly delivers! I enjoyed it immensely, as I do all of this author’s works. It is a wonderful read, full of excitement and charm.

The story ends with a surprising twist, which readers won’t see coming. It really encapsulates the wonder of the season and the cheer and miracles that only this time of year can bring. It would be a lovely way to get children into the festive spirit, especially now that winter is almost here and we can all look forward to those special days off work or school with our families.

I highly recommend adding this cheerful tale to your library, as well as the other books in this series. They are all incredibly beautiful reads!’

‘This wonderful read gets a sparkling review from me!

From the first page to the last, I was completely absorbed by the author’s gift for writing children’s literature. The prose is beautifully descriptive and flows wonderfully from page to page. The world Tait has created really comes alive in your mind as you read, making it easy to get lost in the enchanting story.

The illustrations of this book are stunning, adding another layer of allure to an already dazzling read. It will surely bring magic into the lives of young readers.

In all, The Fairy in the Kettle is a series that has captured my heart, and I am very excited to see it reach its full potential!’
Louise Jane, CEO The Golden Wizard Book Prize

‘This is an astounding children’s book: the pictures are gorgeous and lovely, the story is incredible and the rhymes and stylistic devices make it such a poetic text!’
