Disclosure: I received a copy of The Golden Winger Fairy to assess. All opinions are my own.
Children around the world cherish fairies – ethereal, mythical creatures in human form with wings who hold magical powers. So it’s no surprise children love books about fairies. Though Disney has made Tinkerbell one of the most well-known fairies, there’s something to be said about a non-mass-produced and commercialized children’s book that comes from the heart.
One such book is The Golden Winged Fairy written by Lala Fae and illustrated by Laura Siadak. The fairy Lorelei longs to be like the Silver Moon Fairies but is ashamed of her one golden wing. Lorelei masks the color of her golden wing to match the silver of the other fairies. She joyfully flies into the night with them. A sudden storm uncovers her golden wing, and Lorelei flees from the other fairies. Unbeknownst to Lorelei, she learns later that her unmasked golden wing helped the Silver Moon Fairies survive the storm. With universal themes about differences and self-acceptance, The Golden Winged Fairy is a timeless and sweet, enchanting story that children of all ages can relate to.
The heirloom-worthy book stands out not only for its storyline but also for its high quality of production. This gorgeous 12″ x 9″ large book features silver and gold foil accents not only on its cover but also throughout the pages of the books — a rare find in today’s children’s books. Camera pictures taken of the illustrations are unable to completely capture the beauty of the book. One needs to view it in person and feel and turn the pages (made with thicker, quality paper stock). Readers can take in the lush illustrations of the woodland fairies along with the whimsical text font type that reflects the mystical attributes of the book.
The award-winning book has received multiple accolades, including:
- Winner, Moonbeam Children’s Silver Award
- Winner, Mom’s Choice Gold Award
- Finalist, 2016 Foreword Indies Award in Children’s Picture Books, Early Reader
- Finalist, 2017 Benjamin Franklin Award in the Best New Voice in Children’s
The Golden Winged Fairy, with his beautiful story and high-quality production, is an ideal gift for children. Purchase the hardcover book or Kindle version on Amazon.
