Description

Margaret McNamara tells the stories of Tinker Bell’s little sisters in her charming chapter-book series, the Fairy Bell Sisters. Readers of the Disney Fairies and Rainbow Fairies series will adore these magical fairy tales.

In the second book in the series, Rosy and the Secret Friend, it’s summertime, and the island cottages are taken over by the Summer People. The fairies are supposed to stay in hiding, away from the big, scary humans. But one Summer Child, Louisa, is sick and lonely. Kindhearted Rosy knows just what to do to make her feel better. Soon Rosy and Louisa are secret friends! How can Rosy keep such a big secret from her very own sisters?

Whimsical illustrations by Julia Denos make these books a magical read.

Margaret and her family live in New York City, but they spend part of their summer on an island in Maine very much like Sheepskerry Island.
