Pastoral and warm; this is a book to delight lovers of fairies and fantasy. At first I was reluctant to believe there could be a fresh take on a world of little people. After all it has been done with The Littles and The Borrowers. The title didn’t lead me to believe it would be a satisfying read but it exceeded my expectations and made me a believer. A delightful read with quirky and interesting characters, a lush setting and engaging plot line. Definitely worth purchasing for a K-8 library. Great companion for ” The Higher Power of Lucky” as it has similar themes.
