Newbery Medal winner Laura Amy Schlitz—New York Times bestselling author of Good Masters! Sweet Ladies! and A Drowned Maiden’s Hair—creates a magnificent tale about a tiny night fairy who loses her wings and can no longer fly. As Flory the fledgling fairy soars through the dark sky, a ravenous bat bites off her wings. Injured yet determined to live, she’s willing to do what it takes to survive—even if it means befriending a hungry squirrel and becoming a day fairy.

    " I like this book because it is about fairies. I did not like it when a bat bite into Flora's wings but the rest were fine. I think you should buy one too! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie | 2/19/2011

    " A great read aloud for primary students as well as a read alone for young gifted. The fairy might be off-putting for boys but with numerous creatures like spiders and bats plus adventurous battles with swords will bring them in too. "
