It has been twenty years since the time of The Fairies of Nutfolk Wood, and grownup Willa has returned to Plunkit with her daughter, Zelly. Willa can't see the fairies anymore, but Zelly can, and she meets an unusual boy—the last remaining fairy child living in Nutfolk Wood, Ronald Whistle Bright.
Hard times have befallen the fairy town of Nutfolk Wood, but Whistle Bright is determined to stay in his forest village, even though humans are sure to destroy it. And Zelly wants to stay in the small town of Plunkit, even though her mother insists that they return to their lives in the big city. Zelly is convinced that she belongs in Plunkit, and only there will she find out more about her father, who disappeared when she was three.
In their quest to stay in the place that they love, the tiny Nutfolk boy and the human girl become allies, and both are surprised by the unexpected things that can happen in life.
Barb Bentler Ullman's follow-up to The Fairies of Nutfolk Wood is another charming story infused with magic and hopefulness.

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:
When land developers threaten a community of diminutive woodland fairies, three children and a mysterious man work to save them. From the Nutfolk Tale series, this opens some 20 years after the ending of The Fairies of Nutfolk Wood (2006) and features Zelly, the daughter of the two characters in the previous book. Her parents’ separation means that Zelly doesn’t remember her father, though she continues to long for him. Ullman skillfully weaves the distressed-fairy thread and the lost-father thread into a winsome first-person narrative with an ending that is both magical and unconventionally happy. Grades 3-6. --Carolyn Phelan
