Riassunto:

When Celia Lovejoy?s parents announce that her grandmother is coming to live with them, Celia is delighted. Now while her parents work at their toy company, she can spend time with Grammy instead of going to bossy Paul?s house. When her grandmother tells stories about the fairies living in the woods behind Celia?s house, her parents are quick to dismiss it. ?Just a lot of nonsense,? says her father with a wave of his hand. Her mother reminds her that a ten-year-old girl is too old to believe in magic.

But if there are no fairies, how to explain the glimmers of light she sees from her balcony at night? And why does she dream of a fairy girl begging for help?

All of the answers are in the woods, if only Celia is brave enough to discover them.

An engaging story sure to enchant listeners everywhere.

Recensione: (Recommended Ages: 7-11) A Q&A with Karen McQuestion

Question: You?re a bestselling women?s fiction author with your novels A Scattered Life and Easily Amused. What drove you to try your hand at children?s literature?

Karen McQuestion: I have a confession to make: I never outgrew children?s books and I still read them to this day. A good kids? book can be completely engrossing, transporting the reader to a whole new world. I clearly remember the joy I felt when first reading A Wrinkle in Time, Harriet the Spy, and the books of Edward Eager. I wanted to try my hand at writing for younger readers to see if I could create the same experience for others.

Question: What inspired the plot of Celia and the Fairies?

Karen McQuestion: Fireflies! Growing up I was always fascinated by the flashing glow of fireflies at night. Something about them seemed magical, and from a distance it was easy to imagine that they might be fairies. And who knows? Maybe sometimes the lights we assume to be fireflies are indeed fairies. I like to think that almost anything is possible.

As a kid reader, I loved stories where the main character was someone like me, an average person going about their usual routine of school and home, when something extraordinary occurs. And in Celia and the Fairies, that?s exactly what happens. I guess I wrote the kind of book I would have loved when I was young.

Question: What do you hope kids who read the book will take away from it?

Karen McQuestion: A few adult readers have said that Celia and the Fairies has a good message, and it does, but I?m glad that I haven?t gotten that same comment from kids. Instead, they talk about how much they love the scenes with the fairies, and how exciting it was when Celia had to venture out into the woods alone to save the day. I hope first and foremost to tell an entertaining story, and if a good message goes along with it, that?s fine, too.
