- DescriptionFrom 2008 Newbery Medalist Laura Amy Schlitz comes an exhilarating new adventure and a thoroughly original fairy who is a true force of nature. What would happen to a fairy if she lost her wings and could longer fly? Flory, a young night fairy taller than an acorn and still becoming accustomed to her wings wings as beautiful as those of a luna moth is about to find out. What she discovers is that the world is very big and very dangerous. But Flory is fierce and willing to do whatever it takes to survive. If that means telling others what to do like Skuggle, a squirrel ruled by his stomach so be it. Not every creature, however, is as willingto bend to Flory s demands.
