Little Flory, no bigger than an acorn, was born a night fairy. When Flory was less than three months old, she was attacked by a brown bat who crunched her wings. Luckily, she landed in a giant’s garden and found shelter in an unused bird house. She no longer could protect herself at night and so, Flory became a daytime fairy. Her first friend was Skuggle, a young squirrel who was perpetually hungry. Flory showed Skuggle how to tip the bird feeder for seeds and in exchange, Skuggle became her means of transportation through the garden. Flory has many adventures with creatures of all kinds. She perfects her magic spells. She rescues a hummingbird and keeps the bird’s eggs warm. The life of a fairy is both magical and adventurous. Schlitz makes the magic come alive.
