A fairy isn't born with wings. She has to earn them.

When Queen Jasmine sends Daisy on a Fairy Quest it will take all her wit and magic to succeed.

But what if succeeding means letting someone else down? Will Daisy make the right decision?


This is a delightful new series for emerging girl readers.

Daisy is just waiting for the day when she will get her wings. But the thought of the Fairy Quest that she must undertake to get them makes her have butterflies in her stomach.

The time comes for her quest and together with her best friend, Vu, a shiny green beetle, they set out on her quest that is full of secret messages and challenges.

Will Daisy really be able to achieve her wings? Or will one decision she makes put it all in jeopardy?

A lovely story with a very clear and important message about helping others and never giving up.

This book was included in our March 2014 Primary Fiction Standing Order selection.
