Seven Wild Sisters
Seven Wild Sisters is described as a modern fairytale on its cover and that’s exactly what it is. My eight-year old daughter loved it and I caught my 10-year old son listening in as we read it too. This is a more mature fairy tale, where fairies can be dangerous and capricious. The other world runs beside ours and remains unseen until Sarah-Jane finds a man of sticks, wounded in a battle with the bee fairies and is drawn, with her squabbling sisters into a world of battles, magic and danger.
This book is a world away from the run-of-the-mill fairy stories flooding the children’s market at the moment. It’s a delight to read to your children and challenges their imagination and extends their language.
