Penelope Jane, A Fairy's Tale

Penelope Jane de la Fesser, a flying French fairy is just the perfect size to live in the right-hand dresser drawer of her very best friend, five year old Carrie. When this eye-lash tall fairy decides one day to go to school with Carrie, she doesn’t let her tiny size stand in the way of getting into some really big trouble! But the whole school is suddenly in danger. Penelope Jane musters a lion’s share of courage in order to save the day.
