Emma and the Silverbell Faeries by Matthew S. Cox is the third book in the Tales of Widowswood series. Ten-year-old Emma lives with her parents, brother Tam, and her Nan in a small two-bedroom house. Her mother, Nan, and Emma are druids and they possess magical qualities. After solving the problem of the Silk Thieves, Emma is back to her normal routine, but not for long. The Silverbell faerie, Neema, wants her help and Emma cannot refuse. Neema tells her that the faeries are in danger and dying, and she thinks Emma can save them. The queen wants Emma to save both the faeries and the animals that have been attacking them. Will Emma succeed in her mission? She is gone for days and feels like she is trapped in Faerie Land? Will she be able to get back to her family?
