Philippa Fisher and the Dream-Maker’s Daughter
by Liz Kessler
Philippa Fisher is trying to have a good time on vacation with her parents, but she’s feeling lonely. When she meets Robyn, a girl with sad eyes and a strict father, she enjoys the company, but can’t help wondering what Robyn and her dad might be hiding. Meanwhile, Daisy, Philippa’s best friend (and fairy godsister), sneaks into her former charge’s room for a visit, but now has a furtive new mission and must dash away. Philippa longs to uncover the reasons behind her friends’ odd behavior, but friendships can be tricky when there are secrets — and unexpected danger — involved! Best-selling author Liz Kessler is back with a sympathetic story about navigating between old friends and new, a tale full of mystery, whimsy, and all the magic tween readers could wish for.
BookDragon Says: This was a very sweet and fun read all about self-healing, great for kids 7-12. Addresses subjects of loss, alienation, loneliness, and grief in an easy to digest manner. Happy ending and lots of fae magic saves the story from being too sad.
