I like the idea of the different fairies in the Rainbow Magic Series but every story is just recycled from the first to the last. I understand that it is a chapter book and kids are just starting to learn reading with these books but there could be more originality besides the names.
There are other chapter books that do not follow patterns like Disney fairy books, The Fairy school book by Gail Herman and others.
I also dont think you need to read the books in order because they do tell you what happened in the book before this one.
I just dont know if I will read another. I might try one of the super sized ones like Shannon the Ocean Fairy but I am partial to that because the name only and I think that is what grabs you with these books. The girls see there name or name they know and walla a collection is born.
