From the 9 year old: "I loved the sense of wonder and the descriptiveness"
From the 9 year old: "Prudence was my favorite character because I liked how she was caring to the human even though many other fairies had been captured by them"
From the 9 year old: "I loved the voice of the narrator who did Prudence."
From the 9 year old: " Some points made me happy, some made me sad, some made me nervous."
From the 9 year old: "I wish I could hear more, hear another story about Prudence."Mom says: "This is a great story for the whole family, but it would be especially appealing to every fairy fan out there. It was narrated with such engagement and warmth. I am with my daughter, I want to hear another story, we didn't want it to end."
This is a sweet short tale of a fairy meeting a young boy . Their meeting changes them both for the better. This story is beautifully narrated and pulls you in to the story by the dreamlike soothing audio! A great story for young boys and girls to listen to, or for the whole family to enjoy!
This is an interesting and creative story. It'll leave you and your family with smiles on your faces.
I loved the audio performance. It instantly moved us from this world into the world of the story. It was a perfect match with Powell's writing.
The reader did an excellent job in creating the two characters, Prudence Willowfig and Hugo, the boy she helps. Her diction is quite marvelous, each word beautifully enunciated in an otherworldly English accent.
Tinkerbell Academy, where fairies must earn their wings.
Definitely. It is a short tale.
This was a wonderful children's fantasy book about a fairy trying to get her wings.
Prudence must complete the New Leaf challenge in order to earn her wings. She goes through several obstacles and tests but then she is taken off course by some unusual sounds. They are the sounds of humans. Fairies aren't supposed to expose themselves to humans but Prudence makes the choice to speak to this one. He is crying. She knows that this could compromise her test but isn't helping someone more important than passing him by.
The only thing that I wish would have been different was the ending. I would have liked it to have been more definitive. It was very open ended.
This is a great story about how taking a moment to help someone doesn't just help that person but can make you feel good too.
The narrator was very animated and brought the story to life. She did Prudence's character very well. I really enjoyed listening to this book. I think it would be a great story for a child.
