What's The Mud Fairy About

Publisher Summary

Wearing pink and tiptoing through the dewdrops is for wimps! Emmelina would rather play with her friends, the frogs. But can a fairy with an independent streak earn her wings if she goes against the fairy code? Warm, humorous, and with just the right amount of pink (and mud), here’s a book that will capture the hearts of girly-girls and tomboys alike.

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

Book-loving mama who believes you're never too old for magical stories of talking animals and imaginary worlds.
4.5 / 7.0

This book has a great overarching message that we all have individual talents that we can use to help others and that we’re all needed to make the world a better place! I also appreciated that it showed how even when we’re different or feel like we don’t fit in, we can always contribute in our own way. The story was a little predictable, in my taste, and a little blatant with the lessons.
