5 out of 5 stars


Evie, the Strawberry Fairy, has a special entry for the strawberry fair contest. Along the journey to reach the fair, she stops to help a lot of other creatures and loses her contest entry. When she arrives at the fair, she has nothing to contribute, but some friends might be able to save the day!

I loved this imaginative book! The sweet story and the lovely characters made the whole book adorable! Evie’s character is so cute and funny. I fell in love with her right away, and was truly interested in all the ups and downs of her journey to the strawberry fair. She is so good-natured and generous.

The artwork is enchanting with soft lines and beautiful colors. I loved all the little details in the background of each scene that add so much depth to the story. Fairy houses, little gardens, flowers, and tiny bugs and magic creatures all dot the landscape in various places, and add to the charm of this magical fairy world.
I also love the subtle message that when you are generous with others, you will be rewarded for your kindness. I love books that have a positive message without being preachy.

This book is absolutely captivating! I can’t wait to share this with my little nieces!
