(Ages: 5 - 7) Recommended. Themes: Fairies. Humour. "Ella's family has a big secret - her Mummy is a fairy. She can do amazing spells with her computawand. Only, sometimes the spells go a bit wrong, and that's when Ella steps in to the rescue.
In this brand-new book of magical adventures, there are very naughty monkeys, a swimming pool filled with ice-cream, and the best birthday party ever - complete with giant cakes and fairy dust." (Publisher)
And after so much fun and adventure, will Ella get her wish and become a magical fairy, just like her Mum?
The magic and mayhem in this young chapter book make it a sweet and funny series for 5-7 year-old's. There are lots of messy adventures and parents who do silly things.
