Fairyland has changed! Fairies, elves, wizards, dragons, and gnomes have begun to take on very human characteristics. Sometimes forgetting how to perform the simplest magic, fairy godmothers go into retirement at the age of two thousand years, wizards travel around in flying saucers and submarines, and fairies and elves assume hilarious variations of human lifestyles; their palaces often appearing as a sort of whacky Downton Abbey.
Who Killed The Flowers is another brownie adventure, this time in the World of Water. Flowers have been mysteriously turning black in various places, in different worlds. Familiar characters from Book 1, such the boy Skylar, this time with his friend, Jeff, Marigold, the flower fairy, Queen Celestine, the retired fairy godmother Math, the trickster wizard, and the brownies, themselves, are all in on the adventure. New characters like Sprayneedle, a plant wizard, and Rattycat, add to the fun. Brownies, fairies, elves and wizards travel to the bottom of the Great Sea in a wizard's submarine to track down the killer.
