Quest for the Crown by Eleanor Coombe
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


There is trouble on Faraway Island. It is time for the Great Fairy Council to elect a new fairy ruler, but as the Fairy Queen s crown has been stolen, this is not possible. Rumour has it that Lord Foulweather, king of the goblins, has stolen the crown, and that soon he ll be the one sitting on the throne. In an attempt to stop this from happening, the Queen decrees that whoever finds the crown and brings it back safely to Faraway Island will be crowned the new fairy ruler. Blaize (the singing fairy), Puck (the love fairy), Eden (the healing fairy) and Astara (the youngest fairy in the land), all volunteer to go on the quest. Because the fairies have lost their flying power, the Queen summons a thunderstorm to scatter the volunteers all over the kingdom. Hence, each fairy ends up having a different adventure, meeting bunyips, wattlemen, yowies and dragons along the way. But it is Astara, the youngest fairy, who in the end proves to be the bravest and most honest. She finds the crown and becomes the newest Fairy Queen.
