The magical adventure of an ordinary girl who finds herself transformed into a fairy in the heart of London

Being a fairy is a lot more dangerous than you think ...

Ever since Rowan was transformed into a fairy, her life has been filled with perilous adventure. And when her mum is kidnapped by evil Vulpes and his army of foxes, Rowan sets off on her most dangerous mission yet. With the help of her fairy friends - plus a tiger released from London Zoo! - she's sure she can rescue her mum and save the fairy realms.

But Vulpes is cunning and sly. And he's luring Rowan right into a trap ...

Biographical Notes

Rowan Oakwing came from an idea that popped into Ed's head and wouldn't leave until he wrote it down. He lives in North London and is married with two young daughters who would like to be fairies. He hopes this book will give them that chance.

When he isn't writing books, Ed works as Head of Film and Television at Shoebox Films where his partners include the film director Joe Wright (Pan, Atonement, Pride and Prejudice) and the venerable film producer, Paul Webster (Pan, Atonement, Eastern Promises). Shoebox's most recent film was the critically acclaimed Locke starring Tom Hardy on which Ed was a Development Producer.

Billy and Betty are bored. It's raining, they have no internet connection, there's nothing to do. Then, the doorbell rings. A cheerful, rain soaked woman introduces herself: she's selling secrets. All it will cost is 5 minutes of their time.'What's the biggest secret in the world?', the children ask.'It's right under you nose!', she replies. 'But there's nothing there!''Look again. But not with your eyes.'When they look again, with their awareness, they find the breath. They feel it move. Over the next few pages they are guided through a mindfulness exercise, feeling their breath like waves rising and falling. Each wave feels different. 'Wow, I never realised there is a whole sea inside of me!''And there's another secret too!', the woman says, as she leaves. 'But you need to find that out for yourselves...All it takes is five minutes of breathing a day'.The children sit and wonder what the secret is. It's still raining outside. There is still nothing to do. But, strangely, they no longer feel bored. In fact, they feel calm. And full of ideas!'Let's paint the sea!'So...do you know what this secret is?Mindfulness practices (exercises) are integrated into each story, and expanded on in the 'Notes to Parents and Teachers' section at the end of the books.
