In the newest tale from the award-winning author of Room on the Broom, Freddie meets a fairy who grants him every wish—almost Freddie finds a fairy, tangled in a tree. Freddie is desperate for a pet, so when he rescues Bessie-Belle and she offers to grant his wishes, he knows just what to ask for. The only problem is that Bessie-Belle can’t hear very well, and Freddie tends to mumble, and Freddie is given a net. So they keep trying. Luckily, the Fairy Queen is on hand to explain. This is a delightful tale full of Julia Donaldson’s trademark rhyme and wit, with a subtle message about hearing impairments.

MyGreatestChild’s Review

Freddie rescues a fairy called Bessie-Belle who offers to make his every wish come true. However, she can’t hear him very well so she keeps getting his wishes wrong. Freddie gets frustrated and Bessie-Bell gets upset, but the fairy queen arrives and teaches Freddie to speak clearly so the fairy can understand what he is wishing for.

This book is well written in rhyming verses and it ends the story with an important message. It shows children that everyone is different and they should be patient and kind. The illustrations are lovely so this book would be perfect to read aloud to early years age students.
