K-Gr. 3. The illustrations border on twee in this lesson-laden tale, but they have a certain charm: gossamer-winged fairies, rustic-looking woodkins, and a very impish imp fill the pages in opalescent colors. Fia, a fairy without wings, is assisting the woodkins in gathering stores for the winter, but her sister, Violet, flies above the fray, mocks their industry, and taunts Fia for getting dirty instead of celebrating her engagement. But Fia is also adventure prone, and when she sets out to rescue two woodkins, romance is again postponed. Boggle the Imp plays a part in the rescue and in getting Fia her heart's desire, which is rather different from what he thinks it is. Being different, learning to get along, cultural clashes, and the importance of manners are all hammered a bit hard in this companion to Fairy Wings (1995), but the messages are softened by pictures that emphasize the lighter side, both visually and emotionally.
