Goodreads synopsis:

Margaret McNamara tells the stories of Tinker Bell’s little sisters in her charming chapter-book series, the Fairy Bell Sisters. Readers of the Disney Fairies and Rainbow Fairies series will adore these magical fairy tales.

In the second book in the series, Rosy and the Secret Friend, it’s summertime, and the island cottages are taken over by the Summer People. The fairies are supposed to stay in hiding, away from the big, scary humans. But one Summer Child, Louisa, is sick and lonely. Kindhearted Rosy knows just what to do to make her feel better. Soon Rosy and Louisa are secret friends! How can Rosy keep such a big secret from her very own sisters?

Whimsical illustrations by Julia Denos make these books a magical read.


Hey guys! 

      Bailey wanted to do another review of one of the books that she read recently. I love it when Bee reads. She's in the generation that loves technology, and I love it when she actually picks up a book to read. She actually reads really quickly and she comprehends it and loves the characters. She's 7 and in the second grade and she reads at a fifth grade level. She's very smart, and I'm one proud sister. Bailey started out reading the Boxcar Children books, and now she's started to read a lot of fairy books, and when my mom bought her these books, she was very excited. Rosy & the Secret Friend is the second book in the Fairy Bell Sisters series, and Bailey's read the first book (Sylva & the Fairy Ball), but she's chosen to review this one. Enjoy! 

Q: What is Rosy & the Secret Friend about? Can you summarize it a bit?

A: Rosy's story is nice. It's about Tinker Bell's little sisters. Louisa looses one of her crutches because she was trying to find blue glass for Goldie Bell. She can't walk very well with only one crutch, and all the fairies try to help her.

Q: What would you rate this book? Why?

A: 5 stars: I like the characters.

Q: What did you like about this book? Dislike?

A: How Rosy is willing to help.
I didn't like how Louisa looses one of her crutches.

Q: Who was your favorite character? 

A: Louisa.

Q: Are you going to continue with the series?

A: Yes of course!

Bailey wrote these answers herself, and I helped her with her spelling and such. She's seven years old, mind you, so I didn't expect her to write a full blown review like I usually do. I want her to enjoy her chapter books, and I want her to enjoy everything she reads. 

Things Mommies and Older Siblings Need To Know Before Letting Their Littles Read The Book: (From Bee & I)
  • This is a chapter book
  • Yes there is magic and fairies
  • There are pictures (created by Julia Denos)
  • This is a happy book.

Bailey loved this book, and I expect that all young girlies will love this book. I checked on Goodreads for the reviews to see if other youngins loved the book as much as Bailey, and I couldn't find any reviews that said that all of the littles that read it absolutely adored it. 

I hope you guys enjoyed Bailey's thoughts on this book! Happy reading from Bailey & I!
