In this first in a very long series, Kirsty and Rachel meet while on vacation and become best friends. They stumble upon a rainbow and discover not gold, but fairies in the pot at the rainbow's end. The color fairies have been lost due to a vengeful Jack Frost, who plans to take all the colors out of Fairyland. Can Rachel and Kirsty help find the fairies before it is too late?… (more)

Rachel Walker was on her way to Rainspell Island to spend a week's holiday with her parents. On the ferry Rachel meets Kirsty Tate, and the two quickly become friends.

Once on the island Rachel and Kirsty decide to explore, a rainbow that they spotted from the ferry that seems to end not too far away and the two friends set off to see if there really is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Rachel and Kirsty are surprised when they actually find a pot at the end of the rainbow, but were even more surprised to find what was inside.

Trapped inside an old upturned pot is a tiny winged girl.
A fairy.

Ruby the Red Fairy has lost her sisters, banished from Fairyland until they can be reunited; Rachel and Kirsty agree to help Ruby find her sisters so they might be able to return home to Fairyland.

Rechel and Kirsty now only have six days to find six fairies; will they find all of Ruby's sisters before their holidays come to an end?
The adventure continues in book two Amber The Orange Fairy.

A cute story that any little girl can enjoy. The only problem is that you need all seven books in the series to fully enjoy the story. It was a bit of a letdown that the story is not able to standalone.

Ruby the red fairy is at the end of the rainbow. There are 7 fairy sisters-very colorful until evil jack frost sends them away. This is a cute book but its not my favorite. Good for 2-3 grade.

Rachel is travelling with her family to Rainspell Island, when she meets Kirsty, a girl her own age who believes in magic. Together they stumble upon the pot at the end of the rainbow, which holds something other than gold, it holds a fairy! The red rainbow fairy, named Ruby, takes them to the Fairyland Palace, where they meet the fairy King and Queen, and are charged with finding the other six fairies who have been cursed by the evil Jack Frost. This is the first in the adventures of Kirsty and Rachel, friends and helpers of the fairies.
The story is rather unremarkable, it contains the requisite peril and mostly sets up the rest of the series, but it's a good length (65 pages), and the mythology is attractive to young girls interested in fairies. There are some illustrations, all in black line drawings, with a helpful map at the beginning. Parents and readers, aged 7-10, will appreciate this long-running series of adventures, although they should temper it with more substantive reading.
