Freddie and the Fairy
In the newest tale from the award-winning author of Room on the Broom, Freddie meets a fairy who grants his every wish—almost Freddie finds a fairy, tangled in a tree. Freddie is desperate for a pet, so when he rescues Bessie-Belle and she offers to grant his wishes, he knows just what to ask for. The only problem is that Bessie-Belle can't hear very well, and Freddie tends to mumble, and Freddie is given a net. So they keep trying. Luckily, the Fairy Queen is on hand to explain. This is a delightful tale full of Julia Donaldson's trademark rhyme and wit, with a subtle message about hearing impairments.
