Will Thistle ever escape the nickname Bad Fairy?

Thistle Greenbud thought the nickname Bad Fairy was behind her, but she can't escape it. Someone is spreading a rumor about her that just isn't true and can ruin all of her hard work in getting into Advanced School. What fairy would do such a thing?

As if that's not bad enough, Thistle's dad goes missing. Not a single fairy in Tinselville has seen him. He's vanished like pixie dust. Her mom is distraught, and Thistle is worried. Where could he be?

Thistle and the Flutters, along with Dusty and Moss, are on both cases. Can they find out what happened to her dad and solve the Bad Fairy rumor? Thistle hopes so!

Elaine Kaye Interviews Dusty the Fairy

Elaine Kaye is interviewing Dusty, one of the fairies in Bad Fairy Strikes Again, Book 2 in A Bad Fairy Adventure series. Dusty is Moss’s best friend and Thistle’s ex-bully. Now, Thistle and Dusty are good friends, but ssh! They don’t want their friends to know that just yet.


Elaine: Have you and Thistle done anything exciting lately?

Dusty: We went on a stakeout!

Elaine: A stakeout where?

Dusty: At an old abandoned house in the woods by the library. Brownies used to live there, but they left a long time ago.

Elaine: But why did you and Thistle have a stakeout?

Dusty: We wanted to find out what Viner and Needles were up to.

Elaine: And did you?

Dusty: *rubs his hands together* We sure did!

Elaine: *waiting* Well, are you going to tell everyone?

Dusty: No way! They’ll just have to read Bad Fairy Strikes Again to find that out. Isn’t that why you wrote about Thistle’s adventure in the first place?

Elaine: That is why I wrote it. You’re right.

Dusty: It sure was exciting, though.

Elaine: Were you scared?

Dusty: A little, but I had my friends there with me—Thistle, Moss, Lacey, and Rose.

Elaine: The five of you make a good team.

Dusty: *smiles* We do. We’re always ready for an adventure.

Elaine: And I’ll always be ready to write about your adventures.


We are nearing the edge of our village limits when we see the abandoned house hidden in tall weeds. The night grows darker as we huddle in a fern thicket. “It sure is spooky out here,” Lacey whispers and shifts closer to Moss.

“Let's move in closer,” Dusty says. “Moss and Lacey, you go to the other side of the house. Find a crack in the wall to see inside. Thistle and Rose follow me.” He looks back at Moss. “If you see anything strange, flick your flashlight on and off three times.”

“Then what?” Rose asks, munching on another berry.

“We’ll meet…um…” Dusty looks around and then points. “Over by that fern thicket. Is everyone clear?”

We nod and fly as low to the ground as we can. Once we reach our positions, we hunker down and wait. Time goes by as slow as a worm while we wait. It gets darker. After a while, boredom creeps in.

“What's that?” Rose points behind us.

Dusty and I turn to see a shadow coming out of the woods, heading straight for us. Boogles! No, wait. There are two shadows!
