My Thoughts

Brianna was out with the other fairies picking sugarplums.  What she really would like to do is dance for the Fairy Queen.  A mischievous little pixie over heard Brianna's wish and told her she could help.  With some pixie magic she had Brianna dancing.  But the pixie was just pulling a prank on her.  This made Brianna sad when she realized what was happening.  But what she did not know was she had her own magic for dancing.

The author tells a rhyming tale of Brianna the Ballet Fairy.  It teaches one to look within themselves to find their very own special talents and self-esteem. 

The illustrations are of darling little fairies and pixies flitting around picking sugarplums and merrily dancing.  

This was a very enjoyable tale indeed.  The author and illustrator created some magic themselves.

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book a 5 out of 5.

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