If you have a transitional young reader in your life, you need the Fairy Mom & Me series in your life. It’s a magical adventure full of childhood exuberance.
“Mom calls me her Fairy in Waiting. I’ll have big sparkly wings and my own beautiful shiny crown, and I’ll be able to do magic just like Mom. I already know what my first spell will be. I’ll wish for a unicorn of my very own.”Page 5
There are four stories in this book, all taking us through the adventures of Ella and her fairy mom. And my favorite part is the family activities in the back. With games, craft projects, and lots of space for drawing and using your imagination.
The shorter stories within the book are perfect for the transitioning reader as they can be broken down into shorter reading sessions without losing the overall plot of the book. They all interweave, making it easy for a parent or older sibling to help your reader piece together the stories and practice reading for longer bursts while keeping the narrative intact.
I also love how Kinsella uses today’s technology in her magical world, allowing kids to practice definitions and understanding more mature terminology. All while keeping the stories relatable and full of magic.
One day I was watching Mom having her magic lesson with Fenella on FairyTube. She was learning about the Rainbow Effect.
The Rainbow Effect is very powerful and mysterious. When there is a rainbow in the sky, fairies have to be careful because their spells are extra strong and very hard to control.
That’s why there’s a Rainbow App on every Computawand. The app tells you when a rainbow is coming. All fairies have them except Granny. She doesn’t like apps or Computawands. She says, “Just look at the sky, dear.”Pages 81-82
In all, this is an adorable book filled with a ton of relatable topics to talk about with the young reader in your life. It will encourage their reading, provide tons of giggles, and launch countless daydreams. I can’t wait to give it to my niece.

Fairies, unicorns and magical wishes combine in this third book of the Fairy Mom and Me series from New York Times bestselling author Sophie Kinsella!
Ella’s one wish is to become a fairy like her mom. She dreams of the day she will have her sparkly crown and Computwand. Ella even imagines what her first spell would be: a glittery unicorn of her very own.
But Ella knows that spells are often harder than they look, even with the special fairy apps available…and being a fairy in waiting is not all rainbows and butterflies.
Will Ella learn more magic to help her become a fairy someday? Or will she learn she doesn’t need to be a fairy yet for all her wishes to come true?
“A cotton-candy read for transitional readers.”
Sophie Kinsella has sold over 40 million copies of her books in more than 60 countries, and she has been translated into over 40 languages.
Sophie’s latest novel, Surprise Me, presents a humorous yet moving portrait of a marriage—its intricacies, comforts, and complications. Surprise Me reveals that hidden layers in a close relationship are often yet to be discovered.
Sophie Kinsella first hit the UK bestseller lists in September 2000 with her first novel in the Shopaholic series – The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic (also published as Confessions of a Shopaholic). The book’s heroine, Becky Bloomwood – a fun and feisty financial journalist who loves shopping but is hopeless with money – captured the hearts of readers worldwide. Becky has since featured in seven further bestselling books, Shopaholic Abroad (also published as Shopaholic Takes Manhattan), Shopaholic Ties the Knot, Shopaholic & Sister, Shopaholic & Baby, Mini Shopaholic, Shopaholic to the Stars and Shopaholic to the Rescue. Becky Bloomwood came to the big screen in 2009 with the hit Disney movie Confessions of a Shopaholic, starring Isla Fisher and Hugh Dancy.
Sophie has also written seven standalone novels which have all been bestsellers in the UK, USA and other countries around the world: Can You Keep A Secret?, The Undomestic Goddess, Remember Me?, Twenties Girl, I’ve Got Your Number, Wedding Night, and My Not So Perfect Life, which was a Goodreads Choice Awards finalist for Best Fiction in 2017.
In 2014 she published a Young Adult novel Finding Audrey about a teenage girl with social anxiety and her madcap family, and in January 2018, Sophie published her first illustrated book for young readers about the charming adventures of a mother-daughter fairy duo, Mummy Fairy and Me (also published as Fairy Mom and Me).
Sophie wrote her first novel under her real name, Madeleine Wickham, at the tender age of 24, whilst she was working as a financial journalist. The Tennis Party was immediately hailed as a success by critics and the public alike and became a top ten bestseller. She went on to publish six more novels as Madeleine Wickham: A Desirable Residence, Swimming Pool Sunday, The Gatecrasher, The Wedding Girl, Cocktails for Three and Sleeping Arrangements.
Sophie was born in London. She studied music at New College, Oxford, but after a year switched to Politics, Philosophy and Economics. She now lives in London, UK, with her husband and family.
