What is the setting of the book?
The setting of this book is a person’s backyard. The main character lives in a birdhouse.
Who is/are the main character(s)? What are they like?
Flory the fairy is the main character. She is kind to everyone. She likes cherries and seeds. Peregrine the bat is a character that is happy and has good hearing. Skuggle the squirrel is another character. Skuggle is greedy but he is a good friend.
What is the conflict of the story?
Flory lost her wings and now she can’t fly. She befriends animals that will let her ride on their back so that she can travel. Before she found animals to ride, she made ladders out of spiderwebs so she could travel from tree to tree to get cherries.
What was the conclusion of the book?
At the end, Peregrine the bat tells her that her wings will grow back as her magic grows stronger.
While reading the book, what were your emotions?
It’s a happy book that has a good ending. I liked that Flory befriends Skuggle because he helps her get seeds and cherries and she does the same for him. I think that it is hard for Flory not to have wings and not be able to fly because she needs to fly to find other fairies to live with.
Do you think the book had a moral? If so, what was it?
This book’s moral was probably to keep going through hard times.
