Evie and the Strawberry Surprise
by Stefanie Dahle
4 out of 5 stars
Evie the Strawberry Fairy is confronted with a mystery. Her magic wand is missing. Hedgehog has weird red spots all over. Laurel’s hair has turned orange. Summer heard a loud bang that frightened all the sunshine out of her. What could these things mean? Together the friends decide to investigate.
I liked this sweet story, and how the friends work together to solve the mystery. It’s imaginative and funny! However there were a couple of things towards the end of the story that were not explained. Evie finds her wand, but it is broken. A big deal is made about how she can’t use her broken wand. Two pages later it is inexplicably mended. The text just says, “Her wand was mended, and everyone was happy.” But they don’t show HOW she repaired her wand.
The illustrations and character designs are so cute! They are delicate and adorable. I love all the little details in the art work that brings the magic forest to life. Everything about the art is perfection.
