Butterfly and the Birthday Surprise – Book Review

Fairies of Blossom Bakery is a wonderful series of books aimed at young girls that centres around Blossom Bakery and a group of fairy bakers that live in Fairycake Kingdom. WP_005342Butterfly and the Birthday Surprise is one of the books in the series and is a story about Butterfly getting organised for her birthday as she doesn’t want any surprises so decides to arrange everything herself.  Unfortunately things go wrong but luckily her friends are there to work together and save the day in this cute, Blossom Fairy story.

Butterfly bookAt the start of the book is a map of Fairycake Kingdom, which Miss M was eager to explore and see all the names of the different places.  She liked Blossom Bakery best with it’s big pink roof covered in blossom.

We then read the book, which is a good length for Miss M who is 6, not too short but longer than a lot of picture books.  This was a great story to sit and read in one sitting and although I read most of it, Miss M did have a go herself.  She thoroughly enjoyed the storyline and was keen to follow the pictures as I read to bring the story alive.

This is a lovely book for young girls and even includes a recipe at the back for Butterfly’s Fluttery Wings Cake, a delicious looking double layer sponge with cream and strawberries topped with sponge wings of course!

All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions and we received the book in order to write the review.

  5. Ah, what a lovely, girly book. The illustrations are gorgeous too. We’ve had a couple of books lately which have included recipes or alternative activity ideas and I think it’s a really great way of extending the book into other areas of life.

  6. Perfect for a little lady to enjoy

  7. What a lovely looking book, we have a birthday coming up and this has just made the list!
