Review: Nixie the Bad, Bad Fairy by Cas Lester
Format: Paperback / eBook
Released: May 7th, 2015
Nixie the bad, bad fairy isn't really that bad . . . at least, she doesn't think she is. But sometimes she has to be a teeny-tiny bit bad because that goody, goody fairy, Adorabella, is just too . . . well . . . just too GOOD. Fairy dust and magic are fine, but when your wand's as mischievous as you are, sometimes you have to rely on your own genius inventions to get you out of trouble!
Nixie the Bad, Bad Fairy is a great start to a new children's series about one of my favourite fantasy creatures: fairies! It's a fast-paced, fun book for younger readers and I really enjoyed meeting Nixie and her fairy friends. She's like Horrid Henry with wings!
Nixie gets herself into lots of trouble throughout this book, most of it rather funny and unavoidable. She's a lovely character with a big heart, and I'm sure readers everywhere will warm to her. Ali Pye's illustrations make Nixie come to life and they're a fantastic addition to Cas Lester's story - what a great team they make!
Nixie the Bad, Bad Fairy is a brilliant little read which will appeal to fans of fantasy, fairies and magic. I'm looking forward to reading future instalments in this series and I hope they're as good as this one. I wonder what trouble Nixie will get herself into next?!
