The Night Fairy by Laura Amy Schlitz 117 pages

Third person fantasy about, “Flory,” a night fairy who must adapt to her new “day fairy” status when a bat accidentally nips her wings, and causes her to live in a new garden. Great example of living within changing circumstances, empathy, and helping others. High-level vocabulary discussed (such as suet, torpor) as well as habits and environments of various garden animals. Gorgeous color illustrations, rich with detail to bring this new world to life for the reader.


  1. Glad to see your opinion of this! I chose to read this for my first Mock Newbery book.

  2. I finished this last night. I liked it pretty well. I thought it was beautifully written, but I don't think it will win the Newbery.
