“Silvermist And The Ladybug Curse”

(Random House, 2008)

—————————————-

This is a good entry in Disney’s Tinkerbell-related “Pixie Hollow” series… In it, a cheerful, optimistic fairy named Silvermist has her self-confidence shaken when her friends tell her she’s been “cursed” with bad luck because she’s come across a rare white ladybug. A series of clumsy accidents starts to convince Silvermist that the curse is real, and she has to find a way to overcome the jinx. Taken as a girl-power book, the plot works fine, but in the context of the Pixie Hollow reality, the whole that’s-just-superstition, you-make-your-own-luck lesson is a little less clear, since in the Pixie Hollow world, magic *is* real… and if magic is real, why not “bad luck,” too? Still, this is an okay book for new readers to delve into — if your kid has glommed onto the Tinkerbell movie, etc., and wants more of that world, this book is a good episode.

The water talent fairy Silvermist thinks she is cursed by the white lady bug she finds in a game. Vidia is happy to keep spreading the rumor that she is cursed for good. Silvermist tries to show her good side and keep a stiff upper lip. This is book is a lesson of perception. If you put your mind on the bad, then bad happens. Or if you put your mind on the good, then good happens. What happens to Silvermist and others around her doesn’t matter if it is good or bad. It just the fact it could happen to anyone. I thought this story was only okay. Vidia was very annoying in this book. I know she is the mean fairy but boy can she be mean. I am not sure the character Silvermist was as detailed as other fairies have been in other books.

My five year old daughter loved having me read this chapter book to her. It kept her engaged and there were even parts I would have her read to me. Admittedly, she can already read and can focus easily, but the action in the story should keep younger audiences engaged and is fun for those beginning chapter book readers.

We own all of this series! Started reading them when my daughter was 4 (she just turned 5 now), and they are age appropriate. Not too scary and always a happy ending. One book only takes us about 4-5 nights worth of reading together. The longer ones are good too “Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg” and “Fairy Haven and the Quest for the Wand”, but they are a little bit scarrier than the short books (more appropriate for ages 5-7 I would think).

My first and third graders love this series. We have the last two that we haven’t read on order. The kids know that they can easily talk me into reading extra chapters because I also enjoy reading the books.
