Mimi's Magical Fairy Friends: Catkin the Fairy Kitten by Clare Bevan and Cally Johnson-Isaacs (Macmillan Children's Books)

Mimi's Magical Fairy Friends: Catkin the Fairy Kitten

Written by Clare Bevan

Illustrated by Cally Johnson-Isaacs
Published by Macmillan Children's Books

I quite like these books that come with cardboard models to play with while you read the story. In Mimi's Magical Fairy Friends: Catkin the Fairy Kitten we meet Mimi who is on a magical quest with her teacher Miss Flap (!) and her classmates at Fairy School to paint a rainbow in the spring sky.

There's only one problem. All the magical paintbrushes have gone missing! No Red, Yellow, Pink, Green - no orange, or purple or blue! Thankfully Mimi has one more helper who joins in - her magical fairy kitten Catkin who is an expert at searching out hidden objects.

Children will love this tale as Catkin tracks down the missing paintbrushes one by one, until everyone can join in painting a rainbow. The book comes with fold-out cardboard models of Mimi and her Kitten so your tiddlers can join in acting out the story as you read! What an excellent idea!

"Mimi's Magical Fairy Friends: Catkin the Fairy Kitten" is out now from Macmillan Children's Books. Perfect for the springtime weather!

Charlotte's best bit: Making (and playing with) the cool little cardboard model fairy and kitten that comes with the book

Daddy's Favourite bit: A simple but cute story of a fairy and her cute kitten helper (wouldn't ANYONE love a kitten with wings?)
