Some fairies are destined for a quiet life. Matilda Whipplethorn is not one of those fairies. She’s already off to a good start with a rebellious streak much larger than her half centimeter height.
On a day Matilda’s supposed to be sick in bed, she sneaks out and finds her future deep in the woods surrounding the crumbling mansion she lives in. On a fine summer day, Matilda’s daring life begins.
