Evie is a determined, ingenious and sassy little Strawberry Fairy who lives in an old teapot. Join Evie and her friends, the flower fairies and creatures of Wildberry Woods, on their magical adventures in this first book in the Evie the Strawberry Fairy series.
When Evie's strawberry patch is flooded she needs to find somewhere for her strawberry plants to live - the flower fairies' backyard is too crowded, the pond is too swampy and the woods are too dark. With the help of her friends, Evie moves her plants to their new home on the little hill, but they still won't grow. What has Evie forgotten?
Through Evie's adventures, young readers will learn about the natural world - how plants grow and how all living things are connected. This is a story about determination, working together, caring for each other and putting mistakes right. Stefanie Dahle's illustrations are charming, detailed and full of character and fun.
'A home-and-away story without the homecoming resolution typical to children's stories, which enhances rather than undermines its charm. Sweet.'
- Kirkus Reviews
'What I really liked about this book is how so many woodland creatures come out to help Evie make her new home and transport her strawberries. The illustrations are very detailed and take a little time to see everything happening on the page - a beetle scooping water out of a flooded home, a butterfly flapping its wings to help dry a rug, and a small bug carrying a stack of tea cups. I could see slowly reading this book with a young child so they can notice all the illustrations that enrich the text.'
- Youth Services Book Review
'I love how the story helps us understand how all of nature is interconnected. The detailed, colourful illustrations combine the natural world with fairies, reminiscent of childhood favourites.'
