Airy Fairy

There are six Airy Fairy books all about a little orphaned fairy who goes to Fairy Gropplethorpe’s Academy for Good Fairies. Unfortunately one of the other fairies is not good. She is Scary fairy who goes out of her way to make life difficult for Airy fairy. But although Airy fairy’s spells seldom work the way they should and her fairy wand is all bent out of shape, she tries and tries and somehow always manages to win through in the end.

She only has six spells with which to work her fairy magic and she’s terrible at spelling. Can she possibly do it and get to the school Christmas party on time?
