Description

Only a child so quick-witted as Clemency Pogue, upon finding herself attacked by a wicked, invincible fairy, would remember a lesson learned from the story of Peter Pan. She shouts "I don't believe in fairies," and when it doesn't work, keeps shouting it until the horrible little creature drops as dead as a gossamer-winged doorknob. But then a mischievous hobgoblin arrives to tell Clem that she's killed six other fairies around the globe, some bad, but mostly good. Even if it was a mistake, it's now Clem's duty to set the world aright.

In his hilarious, action-packed debut novel, JT Petty does for burlap pants what holes have done for Swiss cheese.

Critical Reviews:

School Library Journal US
Clemency Pogue is a good listener, which is why she knows what to do when a malicious fairy attacks her in the woods. Remembering an incident from Peter Pan, she cries out, "I don't believe in fairies!" Unfortunately, she utters those words seven times before the fairy falls down dead, and a hobgoblin pops up to inform her that six other fairies have been slain as well. After Clem inadvertently utters the hobgoblin's secret name, placing him in her power, the two set off into the world to find the fairies' true names and bring them back to life. Despite the occasional self-conscious attempts to be overtly glib, this satire of "tough fairy" stories la the "Artemis Fowl" books (Hyperion) is lighthearted, with touches of mischief and merriment. Davis's black-and-white illustrations add to the accessibility of this short, action-filled tale.-Farida S. Dowler
