    "beautiful fairytale!"

    This is a sweet short tale of a fairy meeting a young boy . Their meeting changes them both for the better. This story is beautifully narrated and pulls you in to the story by the dreamlike soothing audio! A great story for young boys and girls to listen to, or for the whole family to enjoy!

    "Cute story!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is an interesting and creative story. It'll leave you and your family with smiles on your faces.

    What about Sybil Johnson’s performance did you like?

    I loved the audio performance. It instantly moved us from this world into the world of the story. It was a perfect match with Powell's writing.

    "Sweet tale, beautifully read"
    Where does The Fairy in the Tale rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The reader did an excellent job in creating the two characters, Prudence Willowfig and Hugo, the boy she helps. Her diction is quite marvelous, each word beautifully enunciated in an otherworldly English accent.

    What other book might you compare The Fairy in the Tale to and why?

    Tinkerbell Academy, where fairies must earn their wings.

    Have you listened to any of Sybil Johnson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely. It is a short tale.

    "Narrator amazing!!"

    The story is a bit confusing, as the author seems to digress quite a bit. But the narrator did a phenomenal job at making the story interesting and fun to listen to. Enjoyed it overall.

    "Prudence Willowfig"

    This was a wonderful children's fantasy book about a fairy trying to get her wings.
    Prudence must complete the New Leaf challenge in order to earn her wings. She goes through several obstacles and tests but then she is taken off course by some unusual sounds. They are the sounds of humans. Fairies aren't supposed to expose themselves to humans but Prudence makes the choice to speak to this one. He is crying. She knows that this could compromise her test but isn't helping someone more important than passing him by.
    The only thing that I wish would have been different was the ending. I would have liked it to have been more definitive. It was very open ended.
    This is a great story about how taking a moment to help someone doesn't just help that person but can make you feel good too.
    The narrator was very animated and brought the story to life. She did Prudence's character very well. I really enjoyed listening to this book. I think it would be a great story for a child.
