Synopsis

Synopsis

From 2008 Newbery Medalist Laura Amy Schlitz comes an exhilarating new adventure — and a thoroughly original fairy who is a true force of nature.

What would happen to a fairy if she lost her wings and could no longer fly? Flory, a young night fairy no taller than an acorn and still becoming accustomed to her wings — wings as beautiful as those of a luna moth — is about to find out. What she discovers is that the world is very big and very dangerous. But Flory is fierce and willing to do whatever it takes to survive. If that means telling others what to do — like Skuggle, a squirrel ruled by his stomach — so be it. Not every creature, however, is as willing
to bend to Flory’s demands. Newbery Medal winner Laura Amy Schlitz and world-renowned illustrator and miniaturist Angela Barrett venture into the realm of the illustrated classic — a classic entirely and exquisitely of their making, and a magnificent adventure.

"The girls who come into my library adore the prettiness of fairies, the
miniature-ness. But they are also nature lovers and lovers of adventure — the future wild women of America. I couldn’t help thinking that these little girls who love fairies deserve something lively." — Laura Amy Schlitz — Quote

"If Flory had had a less exciting life, I would have enjoyed drawing a very detailed domestic interior for her. But she is a creature of simple needs, and after providing herself with a bed, clothes, and storage, she gets on with her mission outdoors. She is brave and resourceful — a perfect heroine." — Angela Barrett — Quote
