About this deal

But the biggest surprise of all is a tiny thing that tumbles out of the pages of the book… A magical, captivating story about fairies, families and friendship from the brilliant, award-winning Jacqueline Wilson.

Then and there, they realise that their father didn’t deserve them and their peaceful, cosy warm lives. and definitely the kind of book I would have loved to read as a child, filled with fairy magic and history and all the heartache and family angst you'd expect from JW. Surely even her silly and indulgent mother wouldn't give her a pink fairy dress on her birthday and make her wear it to school if she were ten? After all these years, Jacqueline Wilson still has the power to captivate readers with her wonderful, emotionally charged books.Additional note: Mab is shown to be good at playing football once - brought on by her new best boy-friend, Micky, because feminism - but it never comes up again.

Biography: Jacqueline Wilson wrote her first novel when she was nine years old, and she has been writing ever since. As well as winning many awards for her books, including the Children's Book of the Year, Jacqueline is a former Children's Laureate, and in 2008 she was appointed a Dame. I kind of wish there was a mention, like a suggestion, of whether Mum was taking any kind of medication, any antidepressants, however.The illustrations are more diverse than I've seen in a JW book for a long time, which was also so nice to see. In the end, as a reward for caring for her, Bindweed grants a wish for Mab and she meets her father once again. What I am certain and adamant about is that Mab shouldn't have to act like an adult and take care of her out of anxiety.

Their flat is full of fairy ornaments, tiny fairy furniture and they’ve even got fairy lights in the toilet. The main reason I will continue, is one, I have bought and read all of her books since I was a child, and they hold a very special place in my heart. But the family are in for an even bigger surprise when something tiny tumbles out from within the pages. JW has shown she's not afraid to include LBGTQ characters in her kids' books before (though in my opinion, 'Rent a Bridesmaid' contains her one true positive rep), and in 'Project Fairy', there is only the slight implication of queer content. The narrative is relevant and features current lingo and contemporary issues, I believe that any child would enjoy this book.As an adult, it only took me a couple hours to complete this book, but it has resparked my love for her books and I rushed today to borrow all of her teenage fiction that was available at my library. It was too adorable - Rachael Dean is a fine, lovely illustrator for this type of children's lit - and I was in the mood for some lighthearted, harmless escapism (at least I hoped it would be harmless), maybe some fairy fantasy, and nostalgia. Jacqueline Wilson wrote her first novel when she was nine years old, and she has been writing ever since. I've read all her new books and absolutely adore Rachael Dean's illustrations, and this was no different for me.
