FESTIVAL BOOK

Fairy Science

<p class="Body75105BooksBios"><span lang="EN-US">Esther the fairy doesn’t believe in magic. But fairies are all about magic, despite Esther’s best efforts to reveal the science of their world. When the other fairies’ solution to helping a dying tree is to do a mystical moonlight dance, Esther decides to take it upon herself to resuscitate the tree using the scientific method. <i>Fairy Science</i>, the first in a hilarious new picture book series, introduces a charming, determined heroine as she learns about the world and celebrates the joys of curiosity and exploring science.</span></p>
