“Velvet Ball and The Broken Fairy” by Patricia Puddle

Velvet Ball is a nine years old girl. She is bald because she was very sick and all her hair fell out and for some reason don’t want to grow back. To improve Velvet’s health her parents decide to move to the countryside.

However, her new school is horrible. She is bullied all the time & all the kids are making fun of her calling her Pixie and other names.

She is trying to be brave but when everyone is ganging up on her it becomes incredibly hard.

While running away from the bullies through the forest, Velvet accidentally finds a talking doll, which looks like a fairy. From that moment Velvet’s life is never going to be the same again.

The story grabbed me from the first page and I couldn’t put it down until I finished. I related to Velvet’s story so much because I also moved with my parents into the small town and I also was bullied in my new school.

 “Velvet Ball and The Broken Fairy” is a fantastic book. Velvet’s story teaches the kids that bullies do get punished and should be punished for an unacceptable behaviour. The kids also learn that good behaviour doesn’t go unnoticed and there will always be some kind of an award for children who respect other people and are kind and giving.

Patricia Puddle with incredible ease writes about difficult subjects such as: children illness or bullying. I love the way Patricia gave power to Velvet to fight the bullies off and find her own strength.

I would recommend the book to kids age 7-12, parents, teachers, librarians and hospitals (if they buy books for kids).

After reading Velvet’s story I think I’ve become one of Patricia’s biggest fan.

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
