The Fairies of Nutfolk Wood Book Review

Posted by Laura Losch on August 16, 2008

The Fairies of Nutfolk Wood by Barb Bentler Ullman

I highly recommend this book! It’s about a girl named Willa. Her parents have recently separated, her father has moved away to California, and her mother decides to move them back to her hometown of Plunkit. Her mom starts working at a bookstore in Plunkit and Willa has to stay with an old lady, Hazel Wicket, who lives down the street during the day. After spending a lot of time with the strange and eccentric Hazel, Willa learns there’s a whole other world living within our world of small fairy people. Hazel can see them, but can Willa see them? This book is about the magic of fairies and the love of special friends. And I’ll warn you – it gets sad at the end! Enjoy!

This is the first of many book reviews I’ll post on here, so always check back for a good book suggestion. I also plan on having LOTS of great student book reviews to post from the 6th graders who are playing the Passport to Lunch with Losch game this year!
