Product description

Review

Prepare to have your notions of fairyhood debunked: Flory, our heroine, can be snarky and rough. But she's also gutsy, loyal, and inherently good. The story of how Flory must fend for herself after losing her wings brings equal doses of character and suspense – and offers a satisfying antidote to all those prissy princess tales.
—Real Simple Family

This elegant hardback’s snug size and Angela Barrett’s exquisite miniature illustrations have the effect of making readers feel as if they’ve crept through a magic portal into a fairy-scale world. Indeed, looking up at story’s end, children may be mildly surprised to find that they’re still the size they’ve always been.
—The Wall Street Journal

Laura Amy Schlitz, who took us deep into a medieval village in her Newbery Medal–winning Good Masters! Sweet Ladies!, here allows us to inhabit the fascinating miniature world where fairies dwell.
—Shelf Awareness

An imaginative adventure story in a familiar, yet exotic landscape…. Beautifully composed, the artwork combines subtle use of color with a keen observation of nature that’s reminiscent of Beatrix Potter’s work. This finely crafted and unusually dynamic fairy story is a natural for reading aloud.
—Booklist (starred review)

Beautifully crafted. . . . Barrett’s full-color watercolor illustrations add depth and perspective to the story. Detailed and drawn to scale, they give readers a sense of just how tiny Flory is compared to the other animals. Children will enjoy looking at this garden from the perspective of the tiny but resilient protagonist. Sure to be a favorite among girls who love fairies.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

Laura Amy Schlitz is the author of the 2008 Newbery Medal-winning GOOD MASTERS! SWEET LADIES! VOICES FROM A MEDIEVAL VILLAGE, illustrated by Robert Byrd, and the 2013 Newbery Honor book SPLENDORS AND GLOOMS. She is also the author of A DROWNED MAIDEN'S HAIR: A MELODRAMA; THE NIGHT FAIRY; THE HERO SCHLIEMANN: THE DREAMER WHO DUG FOR TROY; and THE BEARSKINNER: A STORY OF THE BROTHERS GRIMM, a retelling illustrated by Max Grafe.

Her newest novel, THE HIRED GIRL, traces the story of a farm girl who escapes her hard scrabble life in 1911 rural Pennsylvania, and journeys from the muck of the chicken coop to the comforts of a society household in Baltimore (Electricity! Carpet sweepers! Sending out the laundry!), taking readers on an exploration of feminism and housework; religion and literature; love and loyalty.

Schlitz's latest book, PRINCESS CORA AND THE CROCODILE, is brilliantly illustrated by Brian Floca. This beginning chapter book describes the life of an over-conscientious princess and her uninhibited reptile alter-ego.

Schlitz lives in Baltimore, where she is a lower school librarian at the Park School.
