Fairy Mom and Me Blog Tour (review & giveaway)

Fairy Mom and Me
(Fairy Mom and Me #1)
By Sophie Kinsella
Illustrated by Marta Kissi

Fans of Sophie Kinsella’s sparkling humor will love her first ever illustrated series for young readers about the charming adventures of a mother-daughter fairy duo!

Ella Brook can’t wait to grow up, because one day she will become a fairy and have her own sparkly wings and a teacher on Fairy Tube, just like her mom! Until then, Ella has to learn by watching her mom in action.

But sometimes spells go wrong, and Ella’s mom can never seem to remember the right magic codes on her Computawand. A lot of the time, it’s up to Ella to come to the rescue. Does she have what it takes to be a fairy one day? Or will there be more glitches than glitter?

Praise for Sophie Kinsella:

“A Sophie Kinsella novel is like a box of Valentine’s Day chocolates.” –USA Today

“Kinsella has a genuine gift for comic writing.”–The Boston Globe

Fairy Mom and Me, the first book in Sophie Kinsella’s first-ever kids’ series, is a sweet and delightful story about magic, mayhem, and mother-daughter fun! 

Ella Brook’s mom is a fairy...a real, sparkly wing having, spell casting fairy! And when Ella grows up she’ll train to be a fairy just like her mom, aunt, and grandma. But for now, Ella pays close attention to the lessons her mom’s fairy teacher gives on Fairy Tube...and good thing too because sometimes Ella’s mom’s spells go topsy-turvy and it’s up to Ella to help her get them right. 

Full of fantastical elements, endearing charm, silly humor, magical adventures, and important life lessons, Kinsella’s Fairy Mom and Me is a bewitching and fun romp that amuse and entertain eager young readers. Kinsella shakes things up with a fresh, modern twist on fairy lore, that focuses on recognizable technology and gadgets that young readers will find exciting and cool. Like me, readers will really enjoy all the neat, creative spells and will have a blast watching those spells unravel and cause hilariously over-the-top and good-natured trouble for Ella and her mom. 

Fairy Mom and Me is an engaging and charming book, perfect for young readers who like their fantasy funny, fun, and fresh.
