Truly the Fairy's Great Adventure by Lana VanValkenburgh-Bennett will take readers on an epic adventure along with Truly the Fairy. Truly lives in a forest known as Hopsmeadow. It is a lively little village full of Dinkyhop families who live in quaint huts made out of birch trees. There is a fairy school, shops, market, and a library in this village. Truly's favorite place is the library and she spends a lot of time there reading adventure and mystery stories. Truly is not like the other Dinkyhops at her school. Her wings are a dull green and she blends in with the woods. One day Truly is feeling lonely and she buzzes over to Sycamore River. Her magical adventure begins from there. Let us join Truly on her adventure and watch her discovering the clues that will take her to the most magical places she has ever been.
The story is fun, fast paced, and interactive and will keep young readers glued till the very last page to see where Truly is going. The illustrations are done by the author and are adorable, bright, and charming, adding to the whimsical vibe of the story. I like the idea of giving color to the colors and they add to the radiance along with the illustrations. They also help children to distinguish colors. This magical adventure is a good book for classroom and school library read aloud and story telling sessions. It encourages children to read story books like Truly the Fairy and go to the library just like her and find their happy place.
