Here's what Molly had to say on her blog, Reviews by Molly:
With tons of sickness going around my house lately, I didn't get a lot of the books read that I wanted to read. But I did take the time to read this amazing book by Ms. Pearson. She is absolutely AWESOME in her work!
To be honest in my review, I will tell you that this sort of book is not my first choice of reading material. It's young readers that tend to read this kind. Me, not so much. But, I want to give every author a chance and sometimes, like with this one, I will find one that blows me away to the point of making me a fan.
In F.A.I.R.I.E.S., Ms. Pearson does a wonderful job at illustrating as well as the creation of the story. Ms. Pearson takes a classic bad battles good plot line, throws in a mix of fantastical characters, and turns out a story that will capture hearts young and old alike. Mellie Goodwin is one of those such characters and she truly pulled me to the heart of the book. I could feel the adventure and twists that Ms. Pearson through Mellie as if I was the character.
Ms. Pearson definitely created a 4 Book worthy story in my opinion. Her characters are gripping, her story line is one that is both entertaining to read and lesson learning, with good vs. evil, right vs. wrong. An inspiring story for young readers, this would make a wonderful, fantastical gift for your young book lover! As I said before, while this is one that I wouldn't normally read, Ms. Pearson did make a fan of me with her amazing talent for being an author AND an illustrator, and I am looking forward to her next book!
