A Fairy in the Family – Bekki is a black fairy princess –

Here is my book about a black fairy princess who has somehow ended up, not in fairyland, but living with a total normal family. She is an urban fairy inspired by my neighbours in South London. I wanted to create a book with a black girl on the cover for girls to identify with.

And my wish came true – The book has traveled the world and kids in London, ireland, America, Jamaica, South Africa, France. Grown ups call the book “a mirror”- girls says “she looks like me” My next dream is that an agent will help me get it out here in different languages – it is in Irish.

Bekki the Fairy is a mischievious , magical fairy princess ,

A reader from Multicltural Children’s Book Day called Bekki

“the cutest fairy I’ve ever seen”

Here is the new cover for A Fairy in the Family Again – The School School Science Competition

Well now, we thought Bekki the Fairy had learned to be kind with her magic spells but maybe not.  She still gets tempted to have fun with her magic from time to time.  It seems that her spells have driven away all the baby-sitters, all except one – Geeky Mikita, the most no-funnest babysitter in the world ever.

What happens when all the baby-sitters say no – except one?  This book is a fun story for little girls who like fairies, magic, baby-sitters and black hair.

“I like the way science facts are peppered through the story without it being too preachy or “educational” in tone. This is a great example of informational fiction, where kids can learn about various concepts such as what particles are.”
