What did you like about the book?  Twinkle is a little fairy who loves pink.  She and her friends Pippa and Lulu are invited to Fairy Godmother’s garden party.  Arriving a day early, Twinkle thinks there should be more pink roses. Twinkle’s spell turns everything in the garden pink, but luckily, Fairy Godmother is understanding as pink is also her favorite color.  The next day the party is a success with everyone “…eating fairy cakes, singing fairy songs and dancing the fairy fandango.” On the final double page spread, Twinkle then casts a rainbow spell to turn everything back to their original colors.  The illustrations are full of color, detail and movement. The final page is filled with a sparkly glitter rainbow. Readers will love this enchanting fairy book.
