For young readers (and all the adults who send me fan mail for this series and The Unicorn's Secret)... I love you! 

There is a shiny new addition to The Faeries Promise series today...
Book Two, Wishes and Wings .   

You can read excerpts from all four books  here : http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=books%20kathleen%20duey

                                                                book one in the series


This lovely, sincere faerie story tempers sadness with joy. Readers will eagerly return for the next volume.
-- Kirkus

"With its magical tone, sturdy characters, and satisfying plot, this simple fantasy will engage young readers and leave them eager to read the next book."
-- School Library Journal

"The opening portrayal of Alida's isolation is particularly compelling, and young readers will no doubt feel at first her despondency and then her hope and determination as the story progresses." The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

((I chose the name Alida because I have always loved the sound of it. A year after I wrote the books, I looked up the meaning. "small winged one". Really.))
