Tasha the Tap Dance Fairy by Daisy Meadows

I read this with my 7-year-old daughter who loved it. Anyone who has read any of the rainbow fairy books before will know why. They are designed perfectly for her age group. Each story features best friends Kirsty and Rachel having to help a fairy friend from Fairyland in their perpetual battle with Jack Frost and the goblins. This one is no different.

This story is about one of the dance fairies, Tasha the tap dance fairy, and, just like the other dance fairies, she can't find her missing magic dance ribbon. This means that until her ribbon can be found and re-united with her, tap dancing in the human and fairy world will be ruined. 

Naturally it is Jack Frost who stole the ribbon to use the magic to improve his and his goblins dance moves, but when the King and Queen of Fairyland demanded he return the ribbons he asked his goblins to hide them. It falls upon Kirsty and Rachel to help Tasha get her ribbon back.

Also along the way there are a multitude of clear and simple pictures to bring the text alive, and the story is written in big text too ideal for early readers. 

As for my daughter she loved the story but also the opening poem and the hidden ribbon you have to find somewhere in the book.

Overall a typical rainbow fairy story that little girls will love.
