Review: Dancing Fairies by Jenny Way

by Jenny Way
Illustrated by Nick Roberts
Clink Street
Picture Book
20 pages

Follow the adventures of the Dancing Fairies as they dance and play every night and day!

See them fly over hills, in gardens, on window sills and in the treetops! Join them and their animal friends having fun in the rain and sun. Watch them as they paint flowers - it doesn’t take them hours!

You will be amazed and enthralled by their beauty and that’s not all! These little fairies are amazing and a delight!


In a lovely rhythm which flows almost like a song, this book allows fairies to dance and glisten and fly about.

The text runs mostly smooth and almost takes on the feel of a bedtime rhyme. While it would make a nice last read at the end of the day, it is by no means a book only for sleepy eyes. It's short, sweet, has a vocabulary fitting to younger listeners, and is made for fairy fans. Every page radiates the joy and liveliness often associated with fairies and allow their magic to abound.

The illustrations are bright and energetic. The fairies come to life and offer a large amount of variety while doing all of the things fairies are said to do. I and my children weren't completely won over by the style used in the artwork, but that is really a personal opinion. The illustrations were done with care and do offer the excitement of fairy life.

And here she is...
