The Fairy in the Kettle is, by far, one of the most wonderful children’s books that I ever have read or reviewed. Now, the author is back with a Christmas edition of the Fairies: The Fairy in the Kettle’s Christmas Wish.

Leona the Fairy and all of her forest friends are back with Leona looking forward to decorating her tea kettle for the holidays. Of course she wants it to be the most beautifully decorated home and the best Christmas ever. However, like so many of us during the holidays, Leona runs into some problems. Will she be able to get everything done before Christmas and, more importantly, will all of her forest friends make it there in time to celebrate together. 

Once again, Pauline Tait has given us a wonderful story of true friendship along with page after page of enrapturing illustrations. The story is enchanting, mesmerizing and delightfully told. I know that I get a little excited about children’s books, I admit it, but this one deserves all of the praise that I can give – and more! I cannot imagine any child, pre-school to early elementary (or adults with a child like heart,) who would not adore this delightful book. I only wish that I could give it TEN magical holiday stars instead of mere five. 

You can find The Fairy in the Kettle’s Christmas Wish at Amazon. All of my thanks to #Netgalley, #PaulineTait and @BooksGoSocial for my copy of the wonderful holiday tale.

I absolutely adored this book. The watercolor artwork is stunning and eye catching without over doing it and distracting the reader from the story. The story is sweet and simple which is perfect for a younger reader. I have to admit I didn’t want the story to end as quickly as it did. I love that there is a book prior to this one. Giving both as a gift would make for a wonderful present. I hope there are many more books to follow. Thank you Netgalley for the copy in exchange for my honest review.

Great story and beautifully illustrated. I can see this being read repeatedly towards Christmas. Love the story, not too short and not too long. Plenty of scope for using different voices for dramatic effect with lovely characters. Lots of scope for different storytelling styles as well. With children’s picture books I find that while the story obviously needs to captivate (and it does), the quality of the illustrations can make or break it. The illustrations here are wonderful. Thoroughly recommended! Thanks to NetGalley for the copy for review purposes.

A lovely story with really beautiful watercolour like drawings, I fell in love with them. The story is wonderful for young readers, although I must admit I did not want to story to end.

I kindly received a digital copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange to an honest review.
This is a lovely little story that would make a wonderful addition to a young child’s Christmas reading. For the past few years I have done the book advent with my children, where you wrap up 24 books and they open one each day and read it that night. I have mainly chosen Christmas themed books, and this book would be an ideal candidate for that project. It certainly has the Christmas feels- who doesn’t love a badger saving the day and hot berry punch for round things off. Lovely artwork as well. My children highly enjoyed it.

This is such a sweet and magical book for young children to enjoy in the run up to Christmas. Any little girl who loves fairies and magic will be enchanted by this short story. It is also the perfect bedtime story to send your little ones to sleep with dreams of magic and Christmas.

This is the cutest story of the Fairy (Leona) who lives in a Kettle. One Christmas she talks her friends into looking for the perfect Christmas tree. Leona winds up seperated from her friends and the story goes on from there. It is a story of friendship, Christmas spirit and determination. It is a great bedtime or Christmas story for children. I recommend it for 2-7 yr olds.

I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
