Fairy Forest School: The Raindrop Spell – Olivia Brook ★★★★

Blurb; A brand-new fairy school series about helping animals and looking after nature, from the home of Rainbow Magic!

Poppy Merrymoss is so excited to start at Oakwings Academy, a beautiful fairy school in the trunk of an old oak tree. There she’ll learn about all the different types of magic that fairies use to help nature, and she’ll discover what type of fairy she’ll be when she grows up! But when evil Lady Nightshade puts a curse on the forest, stopping the adult fairies from making the magic seeds that create fairy dust, it’s up to Poppy and her friends to save the forest!

Can Poppy and her friends Ninad Cleardrop and Rose Seedpip stop Lady Nightshade and rescue a little lost otter?

My Review; The first in a brand new series, perfect for any little girls. Full of fairies, magic and animals. Ofcourse it wouldn’t be a story without an evil character but this one is within the school and as new beginners noone believes them about who is really the bad one here. Beautifully illustrated throughout. Magical. Adventure. New school. New beginning. Fab start to a new series alot of little girls will adore. At just over 100 pages a perfect read. I enjoyed it. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.

Whether it is standing up for yourself and your friends, opening your heart to love, or refusing to let others write your reputation, these life lessons will help you shake off your troubles and become folklore for Swifties everywhere.

Containing advice on love, friendship, overcoming fears, being yourself, and finding creative inspiration, Be More Taylor Swift is the perfect gift for Taylor Swift fans.

My Review; This is not written by Taylor this is unofficial. But a brilliant little hardback book at just under 100 pages. An easy read full of life, relationship, friendship and career advice we can all learn from Taylor. Perfect for any little swift fans. Easy reading. Beautifully laid out and illustrated. A fab little book that could be educational and powerful for younger readers. A well deserved four stars from me.

Beast Quest: Ossiron: The Fleshless Killer ★★★★

Blurb; Free the Beasts. Live the Adventure.

Battle Beasts and fight Evil with Tom and Elenna in the bestselling adventure series for boys and girls aged 7 and up!

In the land of Tangala, a new Master or Mistress of the Beasts is to be appointed, and a band of brave young adventurers is ready to take part. But when four of the candidates are magicked away to another realm, it soon becomes clear that the Evil Wizard Malvel is responsible. Tom and Elenna must venture to the Netherworld and defeat Ossiron, a terrifying skeleton jackal, in order to rescue Nolan – one of the New Adventurers – and fight back against Malvel’s wicked plan.

My Review; This is series 28 book 1. But a good place to start I think. Read fine as a Standalone. An easy children’s read at just over 100 pages. Illustrated throughout. Fantasy/adventure/magic. The story focuses on two main characters Tom and Elenna who are on a quest to save four young adventures/warriors. This is just the story of saving one of those four so I guess we will be saving the other three in future books. It is full of magic, portals, fighting and teamwork. There is a great relationship and teamwork between Tom and Elenna against the evil wizard Malvel. Fab read. I devoured it in one sitting. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.
