Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The third in a series of books about Willow's adventures as she masters her secret fairy powers, navigates sprite training, tries to ignore her perfect older sister, and maintains a friendship with Katie, the most un-normal of humans. Willow Avery seems to be advancing in her fairy training with alarming speed. In addition to being able to talk to animals (a very unusual power), she can also fly! But it isn't all good news. Willow's human bff, Katie, has discovered that fairies exist and that's put the Averys in a difficult position. They're under review from the Fairy Council as to what humans' knowledge of fairies could mean. Meanwhile, Willow is entering the school science fair and she's vowed not to use her magic to help her win. So she tests different methods of watering plants the old fashioned way: trial and error. However, a vindictive garden gnome, Jakob DeGroot, is appalled at her plant abuse and does everything in his power to thwart her science project. Of course, drama continues with Bethany and Katie, and new crush Nathan at school. And it looks like Jakob might be meddling with her human classmates' projects too! Can Willow stop the meddling gnome and still be able to compete--all without magic?

Synopsis:

In Wishes for Beginners, undercover fairy-in-training Willow gets the chance to cozy up to Miranda, the most popular girl in fourth grade, when she learns that Miranda's cousin is getting married--and Willow's mom is making the cake! But trouble brews when Miranda invites Willow to an exclusive sleepover--and doesn't include Willow's best friend, Katie. Add some wedding-related fairy magic to the mix, and Willow's in quite a fix!

And in Gnome Invasion, Willow's fairy training is going remarkably well (she can talk to animals and fly!)--but when Katie discovers that fairies exist, Willow's family is put under review from the Fairy Council. And to make matters worse, Willow has sworn not to use magic for her science fair project, but a meddling garden gnome is threatening to ruin her experiment. Can she find a way to compete without using her powers?
