      Fairy Lit seems to becoming a bona fide genre, if you can count the never ending series of Rainbow Fairy books I thoroughly enjoyed The Night Fairy, and thought Small Persons with Wings sounded promising Oh, how I ended up hating this book The only thing good about it was the title it was clever The story however was a disaster The biggest problem was that I could not tell who the book was intended for It seems to be marked at the 4th 8th crowd, but it felt too me like an adult trying to be funn [...]

      We re all sick of vampires right now We re also a little tired of zombies and don t even TALK to me about angels A couple years ago you could have said the same about child wizards Fantasy trends, you see, are fickle and fleeting One trend that somehow hasn t managed to become annoying ubiquitous, however, is the fairy trend In spite of the vast popularity of the Rainbow Fairies series, fairy books for kids and teens come out in spurts and starts No single fairy has managed to cross into the wor [...]

      OK I m not going to lie I read this book because it has glitter on the cover and got a great Horn Book review but mostly because it has glitter on the cover Yet it turned out to be a fantastic book that actually had depth than I was expecting Yes, there are fairies, but a lot of the action revolves around this group of fairies trying to decide whether to keep the magic they have that allows them to create complete artifice and amazing, imaginative illusions that they can live in even though it [...]

      This story got much better as it progressed It started out as a tale about a lonely child with a fairy as a full time friend caretaker whose parents, while physically present, are somewhat daft The young girl, Mellie, offers to bring her fairy to show and tell only to earn bad results the fairy disappears, the principal calls her parents in to discuss her overactive imagination and her parents agree that the fairy does not exist For the next 7 years, Mellie devotes herself to the scientific meth [...]

      Ok, this book was a disappointment I guess I just expected too much after reading the other reviews When a book is rated for fifth through seventh graders, I don t think tampons should be mentioned in it It seems that too many liberties are being taken with kid lit in recent years Can we not have a book with sex, cursing, and feminine products mentioned in it for elementary aged children.

      Review originally posted here.They call themselves the Parvi Pennati Whatever you do, don t call them fairies they hate to be called fairies They may be minuscule, but they are temperamental, and making them mad could result in serious injury This makes life difficult if you re a member of the family that is the guardian of these fairies S.P.W.W.s And life is already difficult enough for Mellie Turpin With these ingredients, Ellen Booraem has concocted a delightfully witty tale of magic, adventu [...]

      This book was disappointing I thought it would be a fun read I was literally waiting for something, ANYTHING, good to happen It never did come And since I ve read another book that is fairies involved though this is Small Persons with Wings I thought it would be just as good Boy was that wrong The characters were boring, unrealistic, lame, not interesting, and not entertaining enough I thought I liked the fairy Small Person with Wings but I ll just stick to fairy cause I m M A D Fidius but then [...]

      Okay, I gave this book a chance, but I couldn t bare with it I am a 13 year old girl, and this was my required book for the summer chosen by my K 8 school All of my classmates agree that this was the worst summer reading book yet First, the plot was horrible and predictable An outcast s family is cursed by fairies, what happens next Oh my lord, I was in tears The writing was even worse I expected a decent young adult novel and I got a book that has adult humor and with the writing style of a fiv [...]

    14. Wendy says:

      This was a disappointment to me It s tempting to say just it s not my thing and move on, but atually, this IS my thing magic fantasy as long as it s set in the real world So it isn t just that I really liked all the human characters, and that s where the three stars come from I liked all the art history, and my favorite part is toward the beginning when Mellie has devoted herself to science, logic, and facts The art scrapbook, and her father s reaction to it, is the funniest thing in the whole b [...]

      Interesting and unique, but incredibly muddled

    16. Claire says:

      DEAR GOD SUCH AN ADORABLE BOOK with Latin French inserts and everything hurry hurry must go must go can t stick around

    17. Marie says:

      The basic fairy story was pretty good and imaginative, but you had to hold on through several things that bugged me 1 Cursing or pseudo cursing fluff, but that s not the word he really used was unnecessary.2 Bullying I know kids bully and get bullied The amount of bullying is probably not excessive unfortunately , but some of the ways she is taught and teaches herself to deal with it are a little out there I don t know ANY kid who would walk anywhere with a tampon pinned to their shirt Grandeur [...]

      The book Small Persons With Wings takes you on adventures that you have never dreamed of going or seeing The book has a quick start In the end the book starts to get slower For the first 3 4 of the way through the book, it is a nice, peaceful story with a mix of fairies and humans For the last quarter, the book starts to take very unexpected turns For example, the girl in the book meets this crazy lady Except, when she puts on the moonstone ring she sees a mannequin lady instead of a normal huma [...]

    19. Janna Jabi says:

      The book, Small Persons With Wings is a great book, I really enjoyed reading it with the big surprise at the end, when Mellie finds out her parents are fairy guardians This book definitly brought many good pop ups and good news to the story If I were you I would read this book because not only is it fun to read but it is also a life lesson, when Mellie gets bullied but she brought her self up and didnt care what they said or thought I rate this book 5 5

    20. Craig says:

      Read this with my niece a little each day she seemed to enjoy it although now she keeps calling me Warm Dolt which is getting old rather quickly but shes only 8 so what can you do

    21. Isabella Nava says:

      Spoiler Alert The main character Mellie turned into a frog, her grandfather was found alive but a living clock, and Mellie s parents have the ability to let them feel and see the truth Have you ever believed in fairies Ever been told a story, well, that s not gonna change in this book review except that this is a whole confusing and crazy drama type of story Small Persons With Wings is a fiction book In my opinion, I feel that this book does have a lot of confusing and lots of frustrating events [...]

      This book is really good My sister read it to me when I was little and I loved it I think I ve read this book about 3 times It is about a girl who gets bullied for saying she had a friend who was a fairy One day she said that she would bring him in, but once she tries to bring him in she finds him to be missing After that day, she forced herself not to believe in anything unrealistic Then a while later she finds another fairy freind, and adventure continues.

    23. Shazzer says:

      As posted on Outside of a Dog I have always loved fairy tales When I was a child, I absorbed the stories of the fairy land of Oz, and as an adult I have devoured and dissected the tales of Andrew Lang, the Brothers Grimm and other legends from around the world There is something about the fairy tale, whether it involves fairies or not, that endures, and something about that fascinates me In the case of Ellen Booraem s Small Persons with Wings, we re dealing with fairies on that later and the hu [...]

      Imagine that you got tessed because of something such as faires,or imaginary friends how would you feel The genre of this book is fantasy because I meen least be real there s no way for faires to exist and you can t talk to them One of the most biggest movement was when the kids started to tell Mellie that she was a fairy fat just because they didn t believe her that she saw faires This book is about how a girl name Mellie that believes in faires but when she tells her friends and when they want [...]

      Finished this one some time back but forgot to update it to read status Though YA fiction will always be my favorite when it comes to youth books, I ve been trying to read a little younger too Small Persons with Wings is definitely for the younger crowd, 5th to 6th grade, I d say.Our main charater, Mellie, cruelly nicknamed Fairy Fat by her jerk classmates, learned to squelch her imaginative mind early Her best friend in Kindergarten was Fidius, a small person with wings who informed her that fa [...]

      ORIGINALLY POSTED AT Fantasy Literature.Mellie Turpin has been suffering for her entire school career Not only has she always been teased about being overweight, but she made the mistake of promising her kindergarten class that she d bring in Fidius, her fairy friend, for show and tell When Fidius disappeared the night before show and tell, Mellie was declared a liar and earned the sticky nickname Fairy Fat Now that she s thirteen, Mellie has learned to suppress her imagination, but she s still [...]

    29. Emilia says:

      I originally picked up this book because of my soft spot for fairy lore, but was ultimately disappointed There was almost no use of folklore in the story, and while I usually wouldn t mind this much the rest of the story just couldn t make up for it The humor was too adult to be funny to children, but too immature to be funny any other age group either While children of all ages should be comfortable talking about tampons and the such, teaching kids that tampons and periods are nothing but embar [...]
