Book Summary

Freddie found a fairy

Tangled in a tree.

Freddie is desperate for a pet, so when he rescues Bessie-Belle and she offers to grant his wishes he knows just what to ask for. The only problem is that Bessie-Belle can’t hear very well, and Freddie tends to mumble. Whatever can they do? Luckily the Fairy Queen is on hand to explain…

A delightful tale full of Julia Donaldson’s trademark rhyme and wit, with a subtle message about hearing impairments.
