Descrizione del libro

2 novembre 2010
When Celia Lovejoy's grandmother moves in with her family, she tells her granddaughter magical stories of fairies living in the woods behind the Lovejoy home. Ten-year-old Celia believes they are just that- stories-until the day she receives an unexpected visit from Mira, a real, live fairy. Mira needs a favor in a matter of the utmost importance. It seems that Celia's house and the adjoining woods are in danger of being demolished to make way for a new highway. The person behind this horrible plan? Vicky McClutchy, a spiteful woman who holds a childhood grudge against Celia's dad. Fairy magic can counteract this evil, but it will only work with Celia's help. Aided by neighborhood friend Paul, Celia begins a danger-filled quest that takes her out in the woods at night to face her greatest fears. This magical tale of a plucky girl combines an entertaining story with an underlying message about the power of ordinary kindness.

5.0 su 5 stelle 6th .. 5 Star Review for Karen McQuestion's 6th Kindle Book 12 dicembre 2009
Di Alice L. Kent - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato
Celia and the Fairies is a Wonderful Read for every age group . I am way past senior citizen age and the second I saw that it was written by Karen and when I saw the cover on this book I knew I wanted to read it . In my generation we read Dick, Jane and Spot. HaHa. I can still vividly remember those books and also remember being a small child growing up on a farm. Instead of fairies, we had magical Lightning bugs that glowed at night and we could see hundreds of them in the fields fluttering around twinkling in the dark. Just like Mira does.

Going back to one's childhood day's bring's back so many wonderful memories and this book did just that.

I am sure that the youngsters who read this book will remember it forever and this story also sends an important message about being good vs being bad to children. I also could of played Grandmother Celia and relate stories like this to my children and grandchildren and hopefully my great grandchildren.

I am an avid reader of myster/light thriller,light romance but I have to say that after I read one of Karen's books I was and am absolutely hooked on the way she writes and when one of her books comes to Kindle I put aside my mystery book or whatever else I am reading and start on Karen's stories.

Another Great read Karen for the youngsters and the oldsters !!!! Keep them coming. If all your future stories equal the quality of the six that I have read of your's, I am going to start saying Ditto...Ditto...Ditto

I bought this book last night and started reading it and I could not put it down. I stayed up to finish the book because it is such an engaging and charming story. The characters are soo real and the descriptions of the fairies make them so vivid and real that you can almost see them yourself. This is such a beautiful story and such a enjoyable read. I highly recommend this book! All age groups will enjoy this book.

5.0 su 5 stelle Ashamed of myself, Astonished by the author's pure talent 5 settembre 2010

I'll be honest. Brutally so. I saw this book and bought it, but in the back of my head I was saying, "Oh really, the lady that wrote that amazing adult women's fiction book, A Scattered Life, wrote a fairy tale for kids? Really? Jumping the shark much? Well, let's put this suckfest to the side to read later." *hangs head in shame* The author stopped by my blog and left a comment and we ended up exchanging a tweet or two when she emailed me asking if I would like a free review copy of Celia and the Fairies, to which I replied something like, "Oh, absolutely, I actually already bought it a while back and cannot wait to read it, it just keeps getting pushed back." (notice no suckfest comment) She still sent me a copy to share with a friend. ANYWAY...

I should have never doubted this author for a second. This is one of the most heartwarming and charming little fairy tales I've had the privilege of reading. I actually started it with my daughter but read ahead because I got so pulled into it. There's the mean old aunt next door, the little girl who's finding magic, the grandma who helps her find the way and... well, there's fairies, people! Fairies! Little human looking things with wings that fly around and glow! While set in the modern times, it had the feel of a story that had been retold before (not ripped off - that's not what I mean at all - but an old story told to little girls at bedtime).

McQuestion has, in all of her books that I've read, an amazing way of transporting you into her story. She makes the places and people come alive. I am pretty darn sure I've met Celia before, somewhere, somehow. Her writing really is THAT good.

I cannot wait to finish this book with my daughter. Her little eyes were all lit up while we were reading it. A note to parents though: If you have a kid (my daughter is 7) that is on the cusp of learning about Santa, etc, there's a line in there that might open up that discussion - depends on if you want it opened or not. I chose to change that sentence a bit myself. *laugh*

For the adults out there... this story will make you believe in fairies yourself. And in the author's talent for creating. To her, I owe a large "I'm very sorry for thinking it was going to suck". I shall never doubt again.

Very very highly recommended. I wish I could say more, but read the description, then go read the book. It's truly beautiful.

2.0 su 5 stelle Just didn't quite work for me 5 novembre 2010
Di Bookphile - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile|Recensione cliente vite del prodotto gratuito (Cos'è?)
Having two children, reading children's lit has become something of a hobby for me, as I try to build up a library of really, really good books for my kids. I've found that some children's lit really works, some does not work at all, and some falls flat. For me, Celia and the Fairies just fell flat. There were some things that I really liked about it but, as a whole, I just couldn't get into the book.

I think my biggest criticism of the book is that some sections of it felt too adult to me. I don't mean this in the sense that the sections were objectionable, but that they discussed concepts that I felt would be beyond the ken of the targeted age group. In particular, I didn't feel that the parts of the book that dealt with corporate corruption were really on the mark for a young children's book. A theme like this would work in a book targeted to teenagers, but I felt like it would go right over the heads of younger children.

Another disappointment for me was with the relationship between Paul and Celia. Paul just didn't feel developed enough for me, so I had a sense that he was there more to drive the plot than to serve as a full character in his own right. I was also disappointed in the way Celia treated Paul. Paul was painted as a selfish, bossy child, but I just felt like the way Celia treated him was too mean. She does apologize, but I would have liked to see some self reflection on her part. I think it would have been a nice message for her to reflect on how her actions caused hurt feelings in someone else.

What I really liked about the book, though, was that it avoided the simplistic trap that most children's works seem to fall into: it did not divide the world into a distinct good/bad dichotomy. I really liked the message of compassion. I thought it was great that Celia's grandmother explained to Celia that no one is all good or bad, and that she introduced Celia to the idea that sometimes people do mean or bad things because they're misguided and not necessarily because they are mean or bad. I was very impressed with how Celia ultimately resolved her situation, and I would love to see more works take this nuanced a view of the "bad" guy.

Though the ending of the book was very strong and though I liked the ending a great deal, it just couldn't make up for the beginning and middle sections for me, which simply dragged. Had the whole book been like the ending, I would have rated it much higher.

A wonderful book! My 8 year old daughter and I love this book! A wonderful and magical story, Celia and the Fairies is a great selection for parents and kids. And ageless tale about fairies, this novel is just pure magic. I loved every minute of it. I even ordered a copy to donate to my daughter's school's library. This book would make a wonderful gift for any child, but especially young girls up to and including tween age.
