Fairy Hunters, InK. by Sheila A. Dane
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Have you ever wondered what happens to your socks while in the washer? Or why they develop holes? Have you ever wondered why your clothes fall off clothes hangers? What about the times when you've picked up your book to find that you've lost your place? These things don't "just happen", they are helped along with fairies!
Sheila Dane along with illustrator Rose Csorba have done a beautiful job of explaining the different types of fairies in the world. Of course they have the help of Ashley, Big Rabbit, Turtle and friends in telling the story as well. I struggled with getting into the book but once I did, I found it very enlightening and an overall enjoyable read. The fairies are beautifully depicted, although not like I would have imagined them! I've had the wrong impression of fairies for many years I guess.
This book is fairly fast reading. I'm sure I would have read it faster had it not been in e-book format but I still enjoyed it. I intend on reading it to my children one day. I started it on vacation and read it mostly while they were sleeping (the only time I really get to read these days!). While this book is a continuous story of Ashley and friends finding new fairies, I can see how this book could also be called a short story book. Each story could be individual in and of itself. I do believe that the short stories or chapters would make excellent reading for a new reader. There are a few "big" words in there (even some I had to look up) but it would be an educational venture for the reader.
My favorite part of the book was the ending. I thought it very creative and original. I'll not say anymore about it. You'll just have to read the book!
