Night Fairy
Laura Amy Schlitz, illus. by Angela Barrett

Just as night fairy Flory has learned to fly, a bat mistakes her for a moth and crunches her beautiful wings.  Dropped into a Giantess’s garden, Flory boldly takes up residence in a birdhouse, choosing to be a day fairy in order to survive.  No taller than an acorn, Flory discovers that by being kind and brave, she can make much-needed friends. Detailed, enchanting illustrations are sprinkled throughout this adventuresome, short chapter book, perfect for ages 5 – 10 as  a read-aloud or for independent reading.
