A mistake that will change her outlook on life. This series starts out pretty similar to most juvenile fairy stories. The difference in this one is that the main character, Elly, dislikes being a fairy. Most juvenile fairy stories the fairy loves b Elly, a young fairy who dislikes being a fairy. Most juvenile fairy stories the fairy loves being a fairy but is too awkward to perform fairy magic. With the difference in the story, it makes this story memorable and somewhat realistic. I am not a fan of the book cover. It is okay but it does not grab me. Although I am not the demographic for the book so it really does not matter so much for the readers.
I also do not remember much magic in the book. I always prefer more magic. What the reader may get out of this book is not really whimsical magic feeling but more realistic tween girl issues with a little magic. May 13, Ali rated it really liked it Shelves: children-s , summer-reading. A very cute book but simplistic and almost babyish at times, not the story but the reading level and sentence structure. My 7-year-old was never bored but she did remark that it was for "really little kids.
I thought it was cute but agree that it was a rather young book and would be a great story for four and five-year-olds. Oct 14, Caitlin W. This book is a fun look into the world of fairies, and incorporates relate-able themes such as academic troubles and not fitting in.
Ella is a fairy who can't seem to get things right-- her wand is broken and never fully charged, and she has an unfortunate habit of turning her teachers purple. All of her trouble-making is accidental, but she's been kicked out of two fairy schools and is not doing too well at her third. She doesn't like wearing fairy tutus, and isn't great at fairy magic, though This book is a fun look into the world of fairies, and incorporates relate-able themes such as academic troubles and not fitting in.

She doesn't like wearing fairy tutus, and isn't great at fairy magic, though she comes from a very distinguished family. She prefers skateboarding to other, more fairy-like forms of transportation. She doesn't want to be a fairy at all-- she sees them as slaves to humans, always flying around granting wishes.
But then she accidentally reveals her true nature to her human neighbor, and an unlikely friendship is formed. She finds that helping people can be its own reward, and that you don't need fairy magic to make someone's wish come true. Whimsical depictions of magical fairy appliances are peppered throughout the book Elly sees most of them as more of a hassle than a convenience , as well as entertaining diagrams of wands, fairy facts and rules, and Elly's family tree. The cover is eye-catching, with silver text and stars, and the text and illustrations inside are purple.
Each short chapter has several illustrations, which are a little artistically messy, with lines extending beyond the boundaries of the figure. Many of the illustrations are somewhat repetitive. Stars and hearts are a motif. Recommended for grades Aug 26, Jennifer Wardrip rated it really liked it Shelves: trt-posted-reviews , read-by-other-reviewers.

She longs to go to a human school, but only really good fairies get to go to those.

The characters are amusing and fun to read about. The plot keeps moving and does a good job of holding the reader's interest. The illustrations are well-done and add a lot to the story and its humor.

Dec 01, Alexandra Ratliff rated it it was amazing. I think that this book is really interesting and that if you have a little sister or a little brother that doesn't like school, you should read it to them so they know what it's like for someone else to not like their school. If they hear what it's like for someone to not like school, then what then they do. I think your little brother or sister would like school. A nice little book, and a fun, original take on fairies.
Cute illustrations liven up the text, which is clear and easy to read. Still, any girl with a yen for fairies should, as I did, gobble up this book. May 27, Amy Holiday rated it liked it Shelves: middle-grade , not-posted-to-blog. Great concept and a cute story. Loved the technologically advanced fairy world, like Artemis Fowl but for younger kids. Elly tries hard even though she's not interested and feels a little insecure because she's not that good at being a fairy.
I think a lot of kids would identify with Elly's situation, and I liked Jess's spunk. Good book for younger MG readers, second-third grade. I read this book on the high recommendation of my 8yo who rarely finishes books and even more rarely raves about them. She loved it and I "just HAD to read it! I read this one with my granddaughter for a school book report project. Geared towards a mid 4th grade reading level, my 3rd grader breezed through it quickly.
She thought that it was a fun read and really enjoyed it.
