“The Hairy Faerie is a story about how friendship and a bit of determination can create the kind of magic that will fix even the worst situations…”



What if you woke up one morning as hairy as a Yak?

Worse, what if, when you tried to cut the hair off, it grew back even thicker?

Take a pinch of Dahl, a soupçon of Walliams, and a dash of Seuss; mix them all together and add a hefty dollop of original, humorous, and mildly perilous Sparkle D’Lacey and you have The Hairy Faerie.

Children and parents alike will delight in the daft names and dafter situations that poor Mary Moffett is subjected to as she desperately tries to find a cure for the dreadfully hairy problem she has woken up with and which she needs to sort out before the Queen discovers her peculiar problem.

There will be squeals of delight mixed in with ooohs and aaahs as you travel with Mary and her best friend Deetle across Faerie Kingdom to the famed wizard known as Pink in the hope of discovering if there is anyway this Hairy faerie can become less well, less hairy.

This is a book that cries out to be read aloud, in company and often.
