9780061345630: The Fairies of Nutfolk Wood (Outdoor Adventures (Katherine Tegen Books))

A Fter Willa's parents' divorce, Willa and her mom find themselves starting fresh in the country town of Plunkit. Catching a glimpse of a sparkle by the creek and in the old woods, Willa knows there's something unusual about her new surroundings. And her older-than-old neighbor, Hazel Wicket, has an amusing story about an imagined family of tiny people that inhabit a tree stump.

Willa knows there's no such thing as fairies, but when she spots more and more oddities, she can't stop wondering if there's some truth behind Hazel's curious tales of the fairies called Nutfolk. . . .

About the Author:

Barb Bentler Ullman is the author of the highly praised The Fairies of Nutfolk Wood. She lives with her family—husband Jim, two daughters, and a vicious kitty named Apricot—in a house that her husband built in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains of Washington State. "My daughter Sara once came up with the idea for an American woodland fairy. She was glue-gunning acorns together and calling them ‘nut babies.' They resided in pretty places in our woods, living quiet, natural lives. One thing led to another."

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* Gr. 3-5. Worn thin and ill by stress, 10-year-old Willa is eager to move out of her spiteful grandmother's house after her parents divorce. After she and her mother move into a trailer in the woods, they meet Hazel, a kind, eccentric old woman who lives nearby. During the summer, Hazel watches Willa while her mother works, and Willa assists Hazel with her chores, which helps the child grow stronger. Willa also begins to read between the lines of Hazel's many stories. Soon they share a secret: a band of woodland fairies called the Nutfolk lives in the woods, invisible to all but a few. When humans threaten their unseen neighbors, Willa and Hazel fight back. With so many fantasies set in vaguely medieval realms, it's refreshing to find one with a homey American backdrop. Ullman's first novel affirms homespun, American values as well, such as the benefits of physical work and nature; Hazel's advice on scaring spiders from the privy and the details of doing laundry pioneer-style are as involving as the particulars of the Nutfolk's cabins, clothes, and magic. A convincing first-person narrative with the wholesome appeal of fresh-baked bread. Carolyn Phelan
