Marvelous Middle Grade Monday
Shannon Whitney Messenger decided it was time to give middle grade stories the attention they deserve, and "Marvelous Middle Grade Mondays" was born.
Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg
Fairy Haven and the Quest for the Wand
Gail Carson Levine
Fairy Dust Goodreads Blurb:
A Newbery Honor-winning author takes readers back to the home of Peter Pan in this "New York Times" bestelling fantasy featuring the fairies of Never Land, including Tinker Bell and new arrival Prilla, who doesn't quite fit in. Full color.
Fairy Haven Goodreads Blurb:
Newbery Honor-winning author Gale Carson Levine ("Ella Enchanted") delivers the thrilling sequel to "Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg." Rani, Tinker Bell, and all of the Never Fairies find themselves fighting against the greatest danger of all--their own heart's desires--to save their beloved Fairy Haven.
These books are absolutely beautiful! I love the over-sized covers, the gorgeous illustrations (by David Christiana), and the wonderful read-aloud quality of the stories. My daughter and I read them a chapter or two at a time -- L-O-V-E!!
The covers say it all, folks. The stories inside are every bit as inviting and delightful as the outsides.
