Hott Synopsis:

amazon Goodreads
Quinn is a fairy sprite who dreams of becoming queen. But how does one become a queen? All the books Quinn has ever read claim that damsels in distress are rescued by princes and then live happily ever after. Quinn’s search for a handsome prince is brought to an abrupt halt by a nasty two-headed ogre who threatens the safety of Fairy Land.

Can Quinn summon the queen inside her heart to outwit this evil foe?

Hott Review:

I really enjoyed this book. Julia Dweck’s verse coupled with Beth Trott’s amazing images takes readers young and old into a fairy world with the lovely Quinn.

It is so refreshing to remind our children that they can do big things too. That we don’t need to be rescued is something that in sadly lacking in the education of many. I loved this small and utterly fun push in te right direction!


And suddenly, a dreaded sound,
As something wicked stomped the ground.
A gruesome ogre, wide and tall,
And both heads said, “I’m King of all!”
Now looking round, Quinn was alone.
How could she stop it on her own?
But fairies always locked their doors
When ogres came to settle scores.
