Fairy Mom and Me Reviews

  • Jennifer

    4.5/5 stars

    Fairy Mom and Me is the first book in a new children's series by one of my favorite authors, Sophie Kinsella.

    I decided to read this book with my 8 year old niece and she absolutely loved it. The UK version says that it is for 5-7 year olds. And while I do think that kids as young as 5 might enjoy the story, I don't know many 5 year olds that read 100+ page books.

    My niece is 8 years old and the book was perfect for her because we would take turns reading the book.

    The narrator is Ella.

    Fairy Mom and Me is the first book in a new children's series by one of my favorite authors, Sophie Kinsella.

    I decided to read this book with my 8 year old niece and she absolutely loved it. The UK version says that it is for 5-7 year olds. And while I do think that kids as young as 5 might enjoy the story, I don't know many 5 year olds that read 100+ page books.

    My niece is 8 years old and the book was perfect for her because we would take turns reading the book.

    The narrator is Ella. Her mom looks like a regular mom most of the time. But she can turn into a fairy. Ella has a bratty next door neighbor Zoe. Neither me nor my niece liked Zoe at all. She was very mean.

    The story was really enjoyable. It was funny. My niece really enjoyed the spells. And she thought that it would be cool if it was real (that your mom could turn into a fairy).

    Ella's mom was really sweet, but in many ways she was a hot mess. She was really bad at doing magic. So everything she tries to do ends up all wonky.

    My niece really loved this book. She hated when we had to stop reading to go out. And she begged me to start again when we got home. Also we didn't have time to finish it the first day. When she came over the next day she immediately wanted to read it. She was sad when it ended and was happy to see that there would be a book two in the series.

    Overall, I think that this is a wonderfully cute book for young girls. It is fairly long, but does have some pictures. It is the perfect book to read with a child.

    Thanks to netgalley and Penguin Random House Canada for allowing me to read this book.

    I read this story with my daughter. She really enjoyed it and didn't want me to stop. It was also easy for her to read out loud to me. We're already excited about the next book in this new series. Sophie Kinsella truly understands a child's voice and what would interest young readers. The illustrations were really cute and my daughter laughed out loud from them.

    I felt it ended a bit abruptly, but knowing there is another book coming helps. The chapters were a bit long and didn't really connect to each other, so it seemed more like a series of short stories.

    Overall, it was fun, humorous, and imaginative. I applaud Sophie for her first attempt at children's fiction.

    I think it would be so cool if my mom was a fairy mom just like Ella's mom. But it is not easy being a fairy because sometimes your spell doesn't go the way you wanted it to go. It is funny that she doesn't use a wand, she uses a computawand. And I would like to thank my dad for reading this book with me. I read this book with my mom so that is pretty funny because the title is fairy mom and me. Thank you Sophie Kinsella for writing such a great book.

    Mummy Fairy and Me was our book at bedtime this week. DGD#1 is a reluctant reader so I decided that I would read it to her in the hope that she would one day want to revisit this story and read it herself. And she absolutely adored Mummy Fairy and Ella! The book is divided, not into chapters, but individual stories around a particular spell cast by Mummy Fairy who is not quite the best fairy in town! Her way of changing from Mummy into Mummy Fairy was one of DGD#1 favourite parts of the book as

    Mummy Fairy and Me was our book at bedtime this week. DGD#1 is a reluctant reader so I decided that I would read it to her in the hope that she would one day want to revisit this story and read it herself. And she absolutely adored Mummy Fairy and Ella! The book is divided, not into chapters, but individual stories around a particular spell cast by Mummy Fairy who is not quite the best fairy in town! Her way of changing from Mummy into Mummy Fairy was one of DGD#1 favourite parts of the book as she also had to partake in the actions and shout “MARSHMALLOW!” during the transformation!

    We both had such fun reading this book about a very modern fairy and her fairy-in-training daughter. We interacted with the storyline, joined in with the spells and laughed at the situations Mummy got them all into. We were both quite sad to get to the end but we have been cheered up considerably by the news that Mummy Fairy will return later on in the year.

    I highly recommend Mummy Fairy and Me to read to, or with, your little person and I’m sure that more confident readers will be heard giggling away from behind the pages of this wonderfully charming children’s book.

    Mami Fee & ich ist die erste Kinderbuchreihe von Sophie Kinsella, die man sonst von ihren Shopaholic Romanen kennt.

    Das Buch ist wirklich total niedlich gestaltet und mit dem rosa und Glitzer ein wahrer Mädchen-Cover-Traum. Auch die Illustrationen im Buch waren wirklich süß, aber leider haben sich diese sehr oft wiederholt, was ich ein wenig schade fand.

    Die Buch selbst ist unterteilt in mehrere kurze Geschichten, so dass sich das Buch auch wunderbar eignet um jüngeren Kindern daraus vorzulesen. Wenn man diese jedoch alle hintereinander liest, wiederholen sich einige Erklärungen und Ausdrücke. Dennoch fand ich die Geschichte sehr unterhaltsam und auch wirklich witzig. Es war unterhaltsam welche Pannen Ellas Mutter passieren, da sie ihre Schwierigkeiten mit dem zaubern hat.

    Der Schreibstil ist einfach gehalten, so dass das Buch sehr gut zum vorlesen für Jüngere und zum ersten selberlesen geeignet ist.

    Yea—Sophie Kinsella for kids! I read this with my 8-yr-old daughter and we loved it. She loved the silliness of the spells and the awful messes the Fairy Mom got herself into. I loved the good choices most of the characters eventually made after learning from their mistakes, and also how Ella reacted to her not-best friend, realizing that not everyone is nice but we can choose how we respond. We both loved the cupcakes! Nice to see a fairy book with substance for this age. Can’t wait for this se

    Alles in allem ein schönes Kinderbuch. Leider wurden Illustrationen ständig wiederholt.

    This was a very cute read, I read it in an hour and got a few laughs and chuckles out of it and I really liked that about this book. I'd say if you're looking for a very light, fluffy, and funny read this would be for you or your daughter, son, younger sister, brother, niece or nephew haha. I do have to say normally I wouldn't read something like this but since it was sent to me as PR mail I decided to check it out. I have a thing for magic so I think that's mostly why I decided to give

I have a thing for magic so I think that's mostly why I decided to give it a go too. My eleven year old sister is interested in reading it too so that's a plus. All in all, as I said it was a cute, fun read, nothing heavy or dark about this one and it was a very fast read as well.. :)

    Ella knows that she will be a fairy like her mother when she grows up, but she is impatient to try out her skills, especially since her mother is not very good at magic and frequently needs some help. Normally, Ella's mom works at an office and takes care of Ella and Ollie, but when the situation requires it, she breaks out her Computawand and magics up cupcakes, flying beds, or clean up spells. Things often go awry, but work out in the end. Ella has two good friend

    Ella knows that she will be a fairy like her mother when she grows up, but she is impatient to try out her skills, especially since her mother is not very good at magic and frequently needs some help. Normally, Ella's mom works at an office and takes care of Ella and Ollie, but when the situation requires it, she breaks out her Computawand and magics up cupcakes, flying beds, or clean up spells. Things often go awry, but work out in the end. Ella has two good friends, Tom and Lenka, but also a girl, Zoe, who gives her trouble. It's hard for her to watch her mother experience problems with magic when she suspects she would do a better job, and Ella occasionally has to ask her Aunty Jo or her grandmother (who uses an old fashioned wand) to step in to fix things.

    Strengths: As more and more of my readers enjoy short chapter books with illustrations, it's been hard to find fantasy books. This one is perfect for strong elementary readers, and still empowering enough that older readers who struggle will enjoy watching Ella's mom make mistakes with which she needs help. The pictures are particularly charming and work well with the story, the magical mishaps are amusing, and Ella is a fun character. This has a feel of Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle for the new Millenium.

    Weaknesses: A bit twee for me personally, with the magic word for the mother to become a fairy being "marshmallow" and spells having names like "Cupcakeridoo" and "Rewinderidoo", but the target demographic will probably enjoy those light moments.

    What I really think: This will go over very well with my struggling 6th grade readers, although my 7th grade ones won't come anywhere near the aggressively pink cover! Ah, middle school.
