Having a fairy friend can be fun, but it’s not easy. When Nina first met the fairy Sybil and her companion Pandigole, she had no idea the fate of the world would end up resting in her hands. After her defeat in SYBIL THE BACKPACK FAIRY #2, the black fairy Amanite has teamed up with the
King of Evil, Aithor, planning to destroy the “trees of life” that are found throughout the world of the Fairies. If these trees are destroyed, not only will the fairy world fall, but the world of humans, as well. In response, the King and Queen of the fairies charge Sybil and Nina with the task of stopping Aithor and Amanite, as Nina gets closer to discovering the truth behind a mysterious prophecy that seems to foretell her future.

"Papercutz introduces a different kind of fairy you won’t find in Never-Never Land." — SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL"Rodrigue’s perky dialogue, peppered with exclamation points, is the perfect fit for Dalena and Razzi’s rainbow-hued art and swirls of fairy sparkles." — NO FLYING, NO TIGHTS
"In an industry where there are way too many whiny girl geniuses, sullen, mopey children of the night and Mary Sues aplenty, Nina is a likeable kid with a healthy sense of who she is, interests that are obviously gratifying to her (she boxes) and a family life that is refreshingly free of slammed doors and tearful soliloquies about how no one understands." — SEQUENTIAL TART
"With a great cliffhanger, fast-paced action scenes and a nemesis in both the real and supernatural world, Sybil the Backpack Fairy builds a rich, inventive world that will definitely appeal to an older middle grade or teen reader." — SPANDEXLESS"Polished and crisp fantasy-meets-reality adventure, with hints of Disney." — COMIC ATTACK
