    Title: Megan the Monday Fairy
    Illustrator: Georgie Ripper
    By: Daisy Meadow
    Main Character: Megan the Monday Fairy
    I love fairy books because they are fascinating and I am very pleased that they have chosen this person to write these books.
    My favourite characters are: Kirsty, Rachel and Megan
    I like the start of the book because it is where you meet the fairy.
    I dislike Jack Frost and the Goblins, because they steel the fun flags from the fairies.
    I rate the book 5 stars.

    blurb: The fairy land fun day flags are lost in the human world , after Jack Frost stole them, but Megan the Monday Fairy needs her flag back to put fun into Mondays can Rachel and Kirsty help them?

    Sophie the Sapphire Fairy
    Auther is by Daisy Meadows
    The book is about this jewel that goes missing and they find it in a mermaid water fall.
    What I like is the gobblins getting squirted by water guns.
    What I dislike is the fairy called Sophie, who gets squirted and can’t fly.
    The best character was Rachel.

  68. classms

    My book at school is Stella the Star Fairy.
    The book is by Daisy Meadows and illustrated by by Geogie Ripper.
    The best bit about this book is when they wake up and it’s snowing. What I don’t like about this book is that the gobblins are trying to steal the fairy’s objects. The best character in this story is Santa beacuse Santa flies through the sky with his Reindeers and he leaves something saying Merry Chistmas for Kirsty and Rachel, because they had helped Santa. I would rate this book 5 and a half stars because it’s good. Some of it is
    bad because the gobblin’s try to ruin Christmas but I think that’s part
    of the Shanice
