When Celia Lovejoy’s parents announce that her grandmother is coming to live with them, Celia is delighted. Now while her parents work at their toy company, she can spend time with Grammy instead of going to bossy Paul’s house. When her grandmother tells stories about the fairies living in the woods behind Celia’s house, her parents are quick to dismiss it. “Just a lot of nonsense,” says her father with a wave of his hand. Her mother reminds her that a ten-year-old girl is too old to believe in magic.

But if there are no fairies, how to explain the glimmers of light she sees from her balcony at night? And why does she dream of a fairy girl begging for help?

All of the answers are in the woods, if only Celia is brave enough to discover them.

An engaging story sure to enchant listeners everywhere. Download and start listening now!

    " Cliches galore. Major plot flaws. Predictable ending. Didn't care for the characters. Did not enjoy this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kitty | 1/16/2014

    " This is just a fairly short, cute little story about a young girl and her encounter with some helpful little fairies, who live the woods behind her house. Charming - you can't help but smile after you read this. "

    " I bought this book on impulse, the author is hyped as one of the better amazon kindle singles authors but I was pretty disappointed with the story. I have 3 other titles I purchased, hope they turn out to be a better read. I'll read a scattered life next before I give up on Karen McQuestion. "

    " Very cute story. A quick read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 12/21/2013

    " Excellent read for the 8-10 set, and entertaining enough for adults as well. Has a bit of moral to the story, but doesn't smack you in the face with it. I think this story of Celia and the fairies that she discovers in her backyard would be a wonderful read-aloud selection. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzanne | 12/16/2013

    " A well told story of a little girl and her encounters with fairies. I loved how the story went from grandmother, to son, and to Celia. The characters are charming and seem to just pop off the page. This is a good read for any age. It is a good story to read to your children with a very good message. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tanya Romero | 12/1/2013

    " This is a charming book and would be great to read to a child. I was reminded of nights when my grandma would read to my sister and I before bed. If you have a child in your life pick this one up. If you have a Kindle, this is a steal at 99 cents! "

    " An Adorable Middle Grade Book, definitely am saving for mt future kids. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Inger Faherty | 10/11/2013

    " I think the demographic for this book is grade school girls, which I didn't realize when I purchased it. Given that information, it was okay. I probably would have enjoyed it when I was seven. Not so much as an adult, however. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle Wegner | 9/18/2013

    " This is a wonderful modern day telling of a fairy story and how a little girl gets to help them to change her world. It is very well told, and I am hoping my three girls will love it as much as I did! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marlene | 6/29/2013

    " Good for all ages - cool fantasy book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelsey | 1/29/2013

    " It was all right. It had moments where I got into the story, and moments where I didn't really care about what I was reading. It was cute, but that's about it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 11/18/2012

    " This is a VERY cute story! I would recommend it for anyone 10 and over! I loved it and it is for sure one I want in my collection for my girls! "
