I received this book from the author in exchange of an honest review.
I have to confess I have no idea what being Fairy-Tailed was. So I was quite confused throughout the story and when the toilet paper came around I got even more confused. What, why are they toilet-papering a room? But apparently, given the last page it is a family tradition? OK, I have to say that it sounds fun that you wake up in your bedroom on your birthday covered with toilet paper. Sure, I have to say it is also a bit weird (because mostly from what I know toilet papering someone’s room/house/etc. is generally done as a prank, not a celebration), but those photographs were fun and I also liked seeing the looks on the kids faces when they noticed their rooms.
I did like that you can tell your kids it is done by fairies, that there is a charm to hang on the door and show that the kid is on the list. This book shows our fairies on their very first mission (RIP that one fairy that didn’t make it so cleanly as his colleagues :P) or well two of them are still new, one of them is a veteran the OG Birthday fairy. I loved the fairies outfit (I had expected dresses and frills, but these fairies are wearing combat boots and army stuff) and that each of them had their own colour wings and glitter. I loved seeing them have so much fun wrapping and zooming and looping throughout the room to make sure everything is toilet papered, um fairy-tailed!
The art was quite fun and I loved how glittery it was. I know, I read this one on my computer, but you could just see glitter here and there.
All in all, this is a fun book, but the confusion did take away some of the fun for me. I think maybe it would have been best if we had a small introduction on what it was before the book and then dive straight into the mission of these fairies. When I read the blurb I thought that they weren’t meant to TP the girls room but that things went messy. But I am glad I had the chance to read this book.
