by Helena Macree Tsavalas

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
As the sun sets in the land of fairies a star tumbles to the ground everytime a human child is born. It summons for them to soar in the night air and flock to the crib of the baby to bestow their special gifts. Their names are Kindness or Bravery depending on the fate of each child. There is one unusual fairy though by the name of Stop. She has to give the baby a kiss after each of her sisters has endowed the child with a gift, which is a wise limit of moderation, otherwise even with the best of gifts things can go awry.
