Synopses & Reviews
For fans of Rainbow Magic Fairies and Disney Fairies comes the third book in the Fairy Bell Sisters, a magical and utterly charming chapter-book series about Tinker Bell's little sisters, by Margaret McNamara.
In Golden at the Fancy-Dress Party, Goldie travels to the mainland for Queen Titania's annual fancy-dress competition. But the mainland is so different from Sheepskerry Island—her host fairies are rather unfriendly and even play a mean trick on Goldie when they realize she has trouble reading. And Goldie feels out of place without her sisters by her side. She will have to use her creativity and quick thinking to turn the party from disaster to success.
Julia Denos once again graces this delightful text with her girly and energetic illustrations.
“Fairy Golden Bell travels to the mainland for an adventure packed with fairies, fashion and bullying.” Kirkus Reviews
Fall has arrived on Sheepskerry Island, which means it's time for the Fairy Bell sisters to start preparing their houses for the cold weather. But Golden is tired of working so hard—she needs some glamour in her life! So when she gets the opportunity to compete in Queen Titania's fancy-dress party on the mainland, she couldn't be happier. Independence, fashion, a chance to spread her wings . . . what more could a young fairy wish for?
About the Author
Margaret McNamara is the Christopher Award-winning author of more than two dozen books for young readers, including the Robin Hill School series. The Fairy Bell Sisters series is inspired not only by her love of the classic sisterhood novel Little Women
but by her own experiences growing up with older sisters (and a baby brother). Margaret and her family live in New York City, but they spend part of their summer on an island in Maine very much like Sheepskerry Island.
The hardest question for Julia Denos to answer is "What is your favorite color?" She has illustrated several children's books, including Just Being Audrey by Margaret Cardillo, I Had a Favorite Dress by Boni Ashburn, Dotty by Erica S. Perl, Grandma's Gloves by Cecil Castellucci, and Letters to Leo by Amy Hest. This is the first book she has written and illustrated. Julia lives in Boston.
