About this title

Synopsis:

Ridiculed by all but her closest friends, the wingless Fia is invited by the boy fairy Kip to accompany him to the annual May dance, where her wingless condition causes a stir until a wing-hungry troll crashes the party.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3?Lovely illustrations, reminiscent of Arthur Rachkam's ethereal style, are weighted down by a pedestrian plot. Fia is the only fairy without wings. Shunned because of her difference, she amuses herself by befriending woodland creatures and creating alternative modes of transport. When she meets a handsome young stranger who invites her to the annual May Dance, fairy-tale fans will quickly guess that he is a prince. Daunted at first by her sisters' petty cruelty, Fia overcomes her fears and attends the dance with the help of Frog, Crow, and Rat. Prince Hyacinth welcomes her, but his parents' objection causes her to leave in disgrace. She redeems herself, however, when she prevents the fairies' loss of their wings at the hands of a troll. The story ends with the promise of a wedding. While young readers may enjoy the appealing illustrations and feel some sympathy for Fia, the lengthy text, predictability of the plot, and shallow characterization all combine to weaken the book's appeal. Wait for a more successful collaboration from this undeniably talented couple.?Lisa Dennis, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
