Okay, settle down! Don’t panic! Heather and Morag are here to help you. Well, maybe you should panic! These 18 inch Scottish fairies show up in Manhattan and do their best to help some tragic humans during their stay. The trouble is their version of helping only seems to cause more and more problems. They also seem to alienate the Black fairies in Harlem, the Italian fairies in Little Italy and the Chinese fairies in Chinatown. Of course, they come with a past: it seems they’ve caused plenty of havoc in their homeland and that karma seems to coming to a head. Okay, if that’s not enough of a plot, there’s a homeless woman who thinks she’s fighting some ancient Greek battles.

So, just stop what you’re doing and run out to get this book and be prepared to LAUGH!

    I agree. Good Fairies is a wonderful, hilarious, irreverent book that deserves multiple sequels — but, sadly doesn’t have any that I know of.
