Bess Drew Sherret: Scarletina's Quest for Fairy Wings

Scarletina is a plucky little girl who is in the early stages of becoming a fairy. She attends the Earth Circle, where she studies the fairy craft in the hopes that she will learn enough to cause her wings to bud and enable her to graduate to the Moon Circle. Along the way, she gets into mischief and must face the consequences handed down by her much-feared (yet loved) teacher, Tutty-Grandhill.

Scarletina is never alone in her adventures. Her all-knowing guardian, Suntra-Spider, can read her thoughts and is always nearby to help the impulsive Scarletina get out of trouble. Her best friend, Shantreel, tries to help her make the right decisions, but Scarletina must follow her heart and her curiosity to learn the secrets of the Nightingale Wood.

Along the way, Scarletina discovers how fairies gather Stardust and welcome the flowers. She meets fairies who care for flowers and trees and waterways. She sees the harm that the bad fairies and Two-Leggeds can inflict on the forest. Through all of her adventures, Scarletina comes to understand how the fairy clans respect each other and live in harmony with all the creatures in their magical world.

Scarletina’s Quest for Fairy Wings: The Earth Circle is the first book in a trilogy about the spunky Scarletina. Future books will detail Scarletina’s escapades as she attends the Moon Circle and Sun Circle in her quest to become a full-fledged fairy.
