Three Lost Kids - The Death of the Sugar Fairy by Kimberly Kinrade

About The Three Lost Kids

The first three books in this series (Lexie World, Bella World and Maddie World) were inspired by Kimberly's three little girls of the same name, who discovered their own worlds where they had magical powers and wanted their mom to write about it!

This special edition trilogy includes full color illustrations and each book is told from the first person perspective of that little girl's world. The paperback editions of these books are 7x10 full color with a coloring book in the back of each. They also include discussion questions to get kids and parents talking about the important themes in each book, such as caring for the planet, emotional maturity and handling bullies.

In The Death of the Sugar Fairy, the Three Lost Kids start a whole new series of chapter books, told from all three kids' point of view. Moving forward, the series will not include illustrations, but will include the same fantastic stories that have made the special edition trilogy so popular.

About The Three Lost Kids & The Death of The Sugar Fairy

Halloween is here and Lexie, Bella and Maddie couldn't be happier. But why does everything feel so different? Fewer houses are decorated and fewer kids are out trick-or-treating. Still, that's not going to stop the three girls from eating as much candy as they can before their parents can stop them, even if that means fighting each other for it.

When they finally discover a haunted house worthy of their favorite holiday, they forget their parents' warnings and go in alone, only to discover that the house really is haunted, and not only that, but they've been transported to a whole different world!

A dying Sugar Fairy in one of the abandoned rooms send them on a quest to find her Sugar Baby and the magic Sugar Flower in order to save her and Halloween. If they fail, Halloween will be gone forever, and they'll never return to their family.

But with Sugar Bug attacks, the Cavity Caves where they must face their deepest fears, and giant gummy bears armed with candy cane swords, the girls aren't sure they'll make it.

About Kimberly

I was born with ink in my veins and magic in my heart. As a child, where others saw shapes in clouds, I saw words. But I was also an entrepreneur at heart. So when my business arrangement with the Tooth Fairy ended, I went pro by writing my fantastical stories and selling them to all my neighbors.

Fast forward…um…many years and many college degrees later…and I am now a published author and reformed journalist.

Though I have written in many genres and fields, I am most passionate about the world of the paranormal and fantasy. Look for these exciting young adult paranormal novels from Evolved Publishing.


My Thoughts 

Maddie is so excited about Halloween not just because her and her sisters get to go trick-or-treating today is her birthday.  The girls were arguing about everything while getting their costumes on.  

They head out with their parents going door to door but for some reason it isn't as festive this year. Not many people seem to be handing out candy or decorating for this Halloween. Maddie feels as if her birthday is spoiled. 

That is until they see a haunted house and leaving their parents behind Bella enters the house. While Maddie holds Lexie's hand she hollers at Bella to come back and wait for their parents.  But Bella sounds further away so she must scream for help yet no one hears. Then she hears Bella upstairs and with Lexie in hand she heads upstairs. She is so afraid!  She  hears Bella speaking to someone.  When they enter the room where Bella is their is a real live fairy and she looks very pale, like she is ill.  She tells the girls she is the Sugar Fairy and she is dying.  She sends them on a quest for a flower that holds her Sugar Baby and they must find her and bring her back to this house to her mother or her baby will die too.

The author had the girls go through some real scary things like Sugar Bugs and the Cavity Cave that is impossible to find you way out of.  Will the girls work together to find Sugar Baby and bring her safely to her mother the Sugar Fairy?  Are they too afraid to complete this quest?  

The fantasy adventures and quest the girls go on build character in the girls and always has a lesson of some sort to learn.  The lesson in this quest was don't stray away from your parents.  Don't eat too many sweets.
Working together is much better than against each other it accomplishes so much more.

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book a 5 out of 5.

I received a copy of this book from the author/I.O. Book Tours for review.  I was in no way compensated for this review.  It is my own opinion.


  1. Kimberly Pens a great read for children and parents alike :)

  2. I won a copy of Lexie World from you and haven't read it yet, but this is really motivating me to get to it! Can't wait! :D
