Princess and Fairy: Enchanting Carnival by Anna Pignataro

Scholastic, 2012, ISBN: 9781742833200.
With the Carnival on its way, Princess and Fairy need to find all of the things on their list. Heading off in a hot air balloon, they visit Curious Treat Street, Cragbottom Heath, Moss Water Merry and Wild Wooly Acres and begin to collect their treasures which they must then deliver to the Carnival King. After the goodies are distributed, Fairy and Princess become the carnival queens at the greatest show in all of Fairyland.
As with the other books in the Princess and Fairy Look and Find series by Anna Pignataro, the divine pastel shades used in these water colour illustrations and huge quantities of glitter are bound to hold much appeal to the young female readers. From the initial pages which contain much white space to those later in the book with beautiful borders and intricate details on every spare inch of the space, this will capture the attention of little girls who love fairies and magic. The message that one can find joy in helping others is also strong and positive throughout, making this a delightful tale.
