ABOUT THE BOOK
Ari J. is visiting her grandparents’ home in Tennessee for the first time. While sitting on the grand porch one night, she sees a twinkle flash across the yard, followed by more twinkles. As she wonders what they are, her grandfather tells her that there have been fairy sightings in the area.
“Fairies! Well, we need to get to the bottom of this!” Ari exclaims, curious and ready to explore.
After her grandmother captures one in a jar, Ari is in for a surprise, as well as a lesson about compassion and connecting with nature.
