This is not a typical fairy tale, and Artie is not a typical fairy. Artie is a misfit. His fellow Dust Fairies have a knack for dirtying people's houses. While we sleep, the Dust Fairies come out to play. And they love to make a mess. They zip around the house, tossing dust left and right. They hold crumb-spitting contests, and they launch soot from their tiny slingshots. Each fairy seems to have a gift for making a clean house into a dirty house. Except for Artie; he's different. He doesn't like messes, and he doesn't fit in. But, Artie has a special talent of his own. It is this unique talent that inspires him to create something legendary. His story will have families looking at dust bunnies in a new light, and may actually give kids an excuse NOT to clean their rooms. Artie's tale helps kids realize that we all have unique gifts, and not everyone fits in with the crowd.
