The Naughiest Fairy's Naughty New Friend by Nick Ward (Meadowside Children's Books)

With a wave of her wand, and a few magic ingredients, the Naughtiest Fairy creates complete and utter chaos in this amusing and beautifully illustrated book by Nick Ward. Feeling a little lonely and bored, the Naughtiest Fairy has trouble making friends until she consults her magic book.

Now with a doppelganger in tow, she can get up to double the mischief and have double the fun. Until, of course, things start to go horribly horribly wrong.

Charlotte absolutely ate this book up and demanded it again as soon as we'd finished (long-suffering daddy obliged of course!)

Secretly it's probably every young child's dream to whizz up a double, but as this tale shows, the consequences can be chaotic to say the least.

Charlotte's best bit: What the naughtiest fairy does to the giant

Daddy's favourite bit: Who knew that pepper was the magic ingredient for naughtiness?

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars, book of the week
