A Fairy’s Guide to Disaster is full of ... chaotic disasters and adventure and diversity.
Matilda is introduced as a typical, sarcastic (not snarky!) teenager with a slight attitude who evolves and grows into a level headed, caring, resourceful guardian. Erm babysitter.
I wasn’t crazy about breaking the fourth wall - basically because it was blatant at the beginning, then faded away. It came across as though the author flipped tracks and didn’t polish or edit it out.
The dilemmas of missing and appearing children kept the rapid pacing of the story and plotline, keeping one’s attention. The creativity of explanations were well woven into the story.
I liked the new characters; they were fleshed out and individualized.
A nice book, yet I’m not inclined to quickly follow the series and removed them from my Wish List.
The sample drew me in; narrator was wonderful for this piece.
Outstanding! The story was really a lot of fun. There was a lot of different creatures that I had never heard of. It is a great story for teachers to use to illustrate that a physical deficit can be overcome. The main character Matilda has significant hearing loss. She overcame a lot to keep the little ones in her care safe.
The narration was excellent!
I highly recommend this book!
