My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Firstly I would to thank Pegasus Publishing for the review copy.
Having not read a children’s book in a while it was weird adjusting to the language, and the repetition but from a child’s perspective it was definitely aimed correctly.
Flick Jones’ had a cosy narrative, one which reminded me nostalgically of books I used to read as a child, such as The Naughtiest Girl in the School by Enid Blyton and The Faraway Tree.
I definitely would recommend this book to young readers, it’s one to empower them to follow their path and not worry if they don’t fit in straight away – that they’ll find what they are good for soon enough. It had great morals to the story of good and bad characters.
The world created was very immersive, again reminding me of Beatrix Potter. The little details were a lovely touch from Flick that layered the world and lifted it off of the page.
All in all a very enjoyable quick read – and the watercolour drawings were lovely – I wish there had been more of them! A lovely edition for children to enjoy along with the story!
Bless little Kicky the Tooth Fairy!
