The Night Fairies' magic is missing --- and now Fairyland is in the dark!

Night is not right!

Nothing is more magical than nighttime! The Night Fairies are careful to keep it that way . . . until their special bags of magic dust go missing. Jack Frost and his goblins are surely causing trouble again. Now Fairyland and the human world are in the dark!

During Rachel and Kirsty's first night at Camp Stargaze, they notice that the sunset is . . . green! Can they help Ava the Sunset Fairy set things right?

Find the missing bag of magic dust in each book and help save the nighttime magic!

Ava the Sunset Fairy is the first book in The Night Fairies series that will engage young readers as their follow the adventures of Rachel & Kirsty, who are out to help their Fairy friends against Jack Frost and his goblins. This time Jack and his goblins have stolen 7 bags with magic dust, and each one needs to be found. Without her special bag Ava isn't able to control the sunset, and it's up to Rachel & Kirsty to get it back.

This is a fun book that even my young daughter who doesn't yet read by herself, loved having me read to her. I find the book's cute illustrations and length to be perfect for 1st & 2nd grade readers, as well as for those younger kids who aren't reading by themselves.

The Rainbow Magic series is a great collection of twelve individual fairy series that include The Rainbow Fairies, The Weather Fairies, The Ocean Fairies and many more. Each series takes beginning readers on fun, quick, engaging adventures. We're looking forward to reading many more books from this series.

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
