When Celia Lovejoy’s parents announce that her grandmother is coming to live with them, Celia is delighted. Now while her parents work at their toy company, she can spend time with Grammy instead of going to bossy Paul’s house. When her grandmother tells stories about the fairies living in the woods behind Celia’s house, her parents are quick to dismiss it. "Just a lot of nonsense," says her father with a wave of his hand. Her mother reminds her that a 10-year-old girl is too old to believe in magic.
But if there are no fairies, how to explain the glimmers of light she sees from her balcony at night? And why does she dream of a fairy girl begging for help? All of the answers are in the woods, if only Celia is brave enough to discover them. An engaging story sure to enchant listeners everywhere.

I haven't read the print version so I don't know for sure, but since this book had quite a few characters in it, I found it enjoyable to listen to the audio edition.
I didn't really have a favorite, but I really didn't care for the lead fairy. I thought she was a little too bossy.
My favorite scene was the ending.
I didn't have an extreme reaction. This was just a short feel good story.
This was my first book with this author and narrator, and I would definitely listen to another audiobook but either of them. The narrator did a really good job getting into character, and the book was well written.
