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

5.0 su 5 stelle Ashamed of myself, Astonished by the author's pure talent 5 settembre 2010
Di CandysRaves (and Rants) - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
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.

1.0 su 5 stelle This book was a blowout. 22 febbraio 2015
Di FIREBANDIT - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

When the title is a girl and fairies it should mean yay a girl going on a trip around the fairies home and having to go on a journey to save the home. It had none of that. All it was was a girl meeting fairies and just her going on her own and her just wishing. It had no action and it was not about what it said. I only would have put a quarter of a star it was so bad. But the telling of her grandma's story's was worth it.

4.0 su 5 stelle A magical story that touches on a number of social issues 1 dicembre 2010
Di Karissa Eckert - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I actually got this for my Kindle some time ago. It was one of those impulsive initial purchases I made right when I got my Kindle; for 0.99 cents it was a great deal. This Ended up being a fantastic book. A great fairy tale for the middle grade or younger set that touches on issues of responsibility, greed, environment and friendship. I enjoyed this book a lot.

Celia lives in her parents' house, a house which has been in the family for ages. Celia's grandma is going to be moving in with them; Celia loves her grandma and the stories she tells about fairies in the woods behind the house. Celia's dad is a toy maker with his own business. Things start to take a turn for the worse when an evil president of a corporate toy company wants to buy out her dad's business and he refuses. Then suddenly they are being forced out of their house because of a new highway being put in. Somehow everything is tied together and Celia has to figure out how; she also finds that she made need assistance from the supposed fairies that live in the wood's behind her house to set things right.

This was a well-written book and was easy to read. Celia is a lovable and realistic character; who tries her best but sometimes isn't as nice as she should be. I loved how subtly the magic in this story was woven into a lot of real life problems. I think kids will enjoy this because it really makes magic in everyday life seem possible.

I was most impressed with how McQuestion integrated a lot of important issues into such a simple fairy tale. In the course of the story Celia learns about corporate greed, a bit about environmentalism, how to accept people for who they are, and how to look past the evil in people and try to bring out the good in them. There were a lot of wordly and important issues addressed and they were addressed subtly enough that I think kids will learn from this but not realize they are learning from it :-)

Overall I really enjoyed this story. It was well written, the characters were believable, and the story was magical. A great story for all ages. I recently saw this availably through the Amazon Vine program and I am happy that Amazon is bringing this story to print so that it will be more widely available. I definitely recommend picking it up if you like fairy tales that deal with real world issues. I think young girls will enjoy it a lot; It is magical, insightful, and intriguing.

4.0 su 5 stelle a very sweet little book 2 novembre 2010
Di Sonja - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Recensione Vine di un prodotto gratuito ( Cos'è? )
Here's a book with something hard to find these days: a magical kid's tale without the fate of the world hanging in the balance. Celia and her family have problems - don't get me wrong. It's just that these problems don't involve anyone getting murdered, tortured, or kidnapped. And it's not that I didn't love Harry Potter. I did. (Still do.) But does every kid's book have to take things to the same extreme (or more)? No, and "Celia and the Fairies" proves that. You can still have a wonderful, engaging tale without supreme evil lurking around every corner.

In this book, we are allowed to enter into Celia's life and her family's history. We get to see McQuestion's version of the fairy world and the role fairies play in our world. And we get to wonder how it's all going to work out in the end (we're pretty sure that it will).

The chapters are short. Very short. I'd say that 3 pages per chapter is the average. This makes this book a nice transition book for bedtime stories if you're moving away from picture books. (As another reviewer mentioned, McQuestion does let the cat out of the bag about Santa, so if you're still maintaining that Santa is real, you'll need to re-word or skip that paragraph.) McQuestion also does that thing I remember from kid's chapter books when I was growing up, where the end of each chapter is a bit of a cliffhanger.

All and all, a great little book. I definitely recommend it for ages 5 and up.
