Bloomsbury, 2017. ISBN 9781681193731
(Age: 6+) "Sisters Addie and Clara have just moved to a new house where they discover that their backyard is a gateway to an enchanted realm of magical butterflies. These special butterflies - called Wishing Wings - have the power to make wishes come true!
A new butterfly named Tiger Streak has just emerged, but something isn't right. She's under a curse that has her confused - she thinks she's a bee because of her beautifully striped wings! Now, only Addie and Clara can help her break the spell. But they have to do it before the day is over or she'll lose her magic forever." (Publisher)
Well who does not like a girlie book? With the eye-catching cover, I am sure this will be a hit with young girls who are moving onto chapter books. The text is reasonably large and set out like a novel for the skilled reader. This will sit along-side the likes of Juliet, Nearly a Vet, Clementine Rose and Violet Mackerel. The storyline follows a traditional narrative but in all good books, it has a happy ending! This is sure to become a popular series. Suitable for ages 6 and up
