The fairy Nata is grumpy because her wings won't work. Several pages of the trouble she causes. The insects and animals around her reassure her that these changes are normal. When her new wings grow she promises to remember, but the toad knows she never does.
Lovely watercolor illustrations given black line definition.

"Jeffs campingsemester i Florida börjar inte så bra som han önskat. Sumpmarkerna, de mörka snåren och havet med alla sina underliga djur skrämmer honom. Helst av allt hade han åkt hem igen.
Men så hittar Jeff en vildhund - ensam, rädd och utsvulten. Han döper den till Mickey och gör allt för att hunden ska bli tam. Just när det verkar som han lyckats, just när de börjar bli verkliga vänner, tränger sig Amber, campingägarens dotter, emellan.

Even though this is an easy read that is aimed at young independent readers, I think it would work even better as a family read-aloud. It's not action-packed, but there's a lot of emotion & thoughtfulness between the lines. And the lines themselves are much like the illustrations, quickly sketched, with deceptive casualness and a light playfulness. I'd love to discuss, with children, the different points of view of Janetta, Grandaddy, and Momma.
