"There's no such things a fairies!" Joe is sure he's right, but his sisters are obsessed by them. They've turned the climbing frame into a fairy bower, there are fairy cakes for tea and no one wants to do his assault course any more. Then a new neighbour arrives, who loves climbing trees and messing about in the pond - and has some other very useful talents too.

Flap copy

A satisfying and funny story for newly confident readers about young Joe's frustration with the fairy games his sisters and his cousin, Sara-Jane, like to play in the garden.
Then Joe meets the new neighbour -- another girl, to his horror. But Mel shows more interest in boat battles and croquet than wings and gossamer.
