9780976202028: Wee Charles and the Strawberry Fairy King

Wee Charles is a boy with a giant imagination and an original, curious mind. In the first of many adventures, he sets off to solve one of great questions of life: where do Strawberries come from?  And why do they taste so good..?  It is a quest that leads him to the Strawberry Fairy King, the source of so many answers - and not just about the humble fruit.  But the Fairy King has never met a boy like Wee Charles and so together they set off on an even greater adventure.

A magical tale of wishes, nature and humanity (and the circus!), Wee Charles and the Strawberry Fairy King manages to impart a subtle ecological message that will stick with young and old,  as it sweeps the reader up and around the globe on a weird and wonderful journey!

Review:

"In all my hundreds of years of being a fairy, in all of the kingdoms of fairyland. I have never heard of a wish... to grant a fairy a wish." "The fruit in our bowls, the vegetables on our plates. Where do they come from? Does someone make them? How do they grow bigger? When Wee Charles looks at a strawberry, he wonders these questions and asks even more. The answer? It is time for a quest!"
