N.J. Stratford (author)

Publisher: Blue Door Education ISBN: 9781952398056

Being a fairy isn’t as easy as you might think. We are not born with good fairy skills or fairy magic—we have to go to school to learn and practice them. I go to Rowan Tree School for Fairies (etc.)—it is the best school in Riverfalls Forest. It is where fairies, elves, pixies, sprites, goblins, and gnomes can learn about the magical powers of our forest plants, hone our skills in elf-shot, and win prizes for the tangliest, messiest fairy-locks. It is also where I have my best—and scariest—adventures!
