Reviews

Praise for Evie the Strawberry Fairy:

'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.'
-- Juno Magazine

'This is a charming tale... It combines a magical world with teaching children about how plants grow, how all living things are connected and how working together, caring for each other and fixing mistakes can make a difference. The vibrant hand-drawn illustrations in a mix of pencils, watercolour paint, pastels and gouache are detailed and expressive and are sure to endear Evie to young readers.'
-- Outside In World

'A home-and-away story without the homecoming resolution typical to children’s stories, which enhances rather than undermines its charm. Sweet.'
-- Kirkus Reviews

'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
