Who doesn’t love a good, wholesome fairy tale, complete with a Fairy Queen, who also happens to be the tooth fairy and protector of Bluebell Forest! I know I do. Following the Fairy Queen’s adventure between the magical, mystical world and the real world, we witness the delicate balance between good and evil, and the fragility of the world around us. While the Fairy Queen works hard to protect the natural world, there are others who seek to destroy it. And then along comes a little girl who longs to meet a real fairy and fly through the magical skies with this fairy. She even builds a little door so the fairy can come to visit. The Fairy Queen accepts the invitation and the two weave their own adventures as they work together to save the natural world.
Tanya Squire’s picture book story, A Pocket Full of Fairy Tales, is a collection of stories centering around the most loved fairy of all, the tooth fairy. The first story in the collection introduces the Fairy Queen and her desire to find the perfect house, but each one has its flaws until the Fairy Queen is delegated with collecting children’s baby teeth. What a grand palace she builds with all the teeth she collects! But the Fairy Queen’s adventures are more than just building castles. She has a job to do, one that she pursues with joy and compassion: saving the natural world, particularly a place called the Bluebell Forest. Each little fairy tale in this collection involves the Fairy Queen and each tale is a progression of the Fairy Queen’s life and work. This is a great way to teach young readers about caring for others and caring for the world around them. Beautifully illustrated.
