Charlotte and the Fairies by Wendy Beasley

Illustrated by Rose Weaver
Children’s Fiction
67 pages
Age range: 8 Years+

Every child loves fairies, well I know I did. The wonder of something small and magical that may be hiding away in our garden, but you just can’t see them. Charlotte and the Fairies is a story about a young girl who moves house and discovers that her new house has a rather and wonderful and magical secret. It is inhabited by fairies.

These magical new friends take her on adventures, until one of them needs rescuing and Charlotte is the only one who can save her.

This is a lovely little story. I liked Charlotte and I very much liked Morgan, Charlotte’s side kick – the super clever dog. The book is aimed at 8+ children, but I sat down and read it to Aria who is 6 and she loved it. She reads independently now – some of her favourites are The Rainbow Fairy series. I would say in terms of reading level this book is harder for a child to read. But Aria declared the story just as good.

The book is divided into 6 chapters, so you could easily read it as a bedtime story, a chapter at a time. I was particularly fond of the illustrations, they were bright and colourful and looked as though they could be brought to life with its very own animation.


A fun book, with a wonderful dog (got to mention the dog!), perfect for any child who has a love of adventure and fairies.

  1. Not in ours but we do at nana’s house, the fairy’s always leave money when my daughter has lost a tooth

  2. Not in ours I am afraid, our garden is waterlogged most days of the year so there is no flowers for them to play in

  3. Yes, my partner & I created a Fairy Garden overnight for my daughter, complete with sign, slides, path & seesaws!

    • We have fairy doors and little toadstools the fairies and elves sit on at night. The kids love it and it is always a talking point.

  4. There are most definitely fairies in our garden…and elves that live above the kitchen cupboards according to my 2 year old!

  5. We have 2 tree fairies (their front door is at the bottom of our huge apple tree), called Joe and Sophie. My great-niece always makes sure that they are ready to go home when she visits and they are always placed there. One night she got her Mum to ring and was so upset that she hadn’t “put them to bed” so I had to take a photo for her to show they were already at their front door.

  6. According to my daughter we have fairies but we also have birds that she walks to that look out for the fairies…..only she can talk to the birds. I cant understand them 🙂 love their imaginations!

  7. No fairies in our garden, they’re a bit nervous of all the flying footballs. They are safely nestled in the woods instead ?

  8. “I do believe in fairies ??‍♀️ I do, I do” — but we only have them in the grandparents‘ garden.

  9. I have fairies in the field behind my house. When I take my dogs out for their last walk of the day, I can see them flit about in my torchlight.

  10. We built a fait6 garden in our garden for our granddaughter we little houses and solar lights
    She loves it and was amazed when she come one day and they had a tiny clothes line with washing hanging on it
