Katie twisted the ring Aunt Jane had given her around and around on her finger, as she always did when she was nervous. The package just HAD to come today.

Katie is a young, strong willed girl that has just moved into a brand new house in the country with her mom. When she brings her BRAND new dollhouse out in the backyard, under the Oak tree, Bluebell, Snowdrop, Rosehip and Daisy make their home inside. But when Katieís mom tells her she has to bring her dollhouse inside, things go a little topsy-turvy for Katie!

Fairy Friends was a very entertaining book, with twists and turns all over the place. It also has two problems: one big one, where they need to save their fairy kingdom, and one little one, where they need a place to stay. The book contains the answer to the small problem, but not the big problem. Although, in the next book, I would think that the big problem is covered. I really enjoyed this book, and hope to read many more of books in the Fairy House series.

Kelly McKain lives in a small flat in West London, with a fridge full of chocolate. Her life's ambition was to be a showgirl in Paris 100 years ago. But that wonít exactly work, so she became a writer. She'd also love to go on a flying trapeze. Her favorite things to do are yoga, horseback riding, dancing and playing the guitar. This book is mainly for kids 6 to 10 years.

Iíll give Fairy Friends 3 flying stars.
