Daisy Meadows is the popular author of the Rainbow Magic fairy books and the Magic Animal Friends series. These junior novels presented in an easy to read style, include all the elements that young readers love; magic adventures, friends working together to solve problems, cute talking animals and good triumphing over evil. They are quintessentially English and a fun introduction to chapter books for girls. The appealing black and white illustrations appear as large borders, around the page numbers and across the double page spreads.
