My Review

I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.

A Fairy Extraordinary Christmas Story is a sweet children’s story about Tallulah the Christmas Fairy who is the tree topper for the Anderson family. She makes friends with the other Christmas decorations and then, when they’re put in the attic for the year, she makes even more friends with decorations from the other holidays. Year after year they look forward to when it’s their turn to go downstairs.

Young readers will enjoy this story. It has cute characters like Tallulah and her friends such as Skelly the skeleton decoration for Halloween or Twinkle, a long forgotten toy.

Purchase on Amazon.



About the Author

(from Goodreads)

6981264About me? Well, I am the author of The Delilah Dusticle Adventures, a middle grade fantasy series. I grew up in the UK, but was born in Gothenburg, Sweden. My childhood influences were a mix of Pippi Longstocking and The Flumps.

Things I like? Swedish cinnamon buns, yoga, tea, salt liquorice, sleeping on boats, compassion and other people’s creativity. Things I do not like? Okra. The vegetable is also known as ladies fingers, which makes them even less appetising to me. Blah!

I have always enjoyed making up characters and their life stories, therefore I jumped at the chance to study theatre at the University of Brighton. I later trained as a drama teacher and I have a Master’s degree from Goldsmiths University of London. I have gone back to my roots and I now live in Gothenburg. People have told me they love reading my stories and I hope you have fun reading them too!
