This is the first in a series of "Weather Fairies" chapter books by Daisy Meadows (surely that's a pseudonym!), the author of the Rainbow Magic series. Simple ink illustrations by Georgie Ripper.
A sweet series for girls aged 6 to 8, set in England, easy to read, 6 chapters and 69 pages.
Annoyingly formulaic for parents, but addictive for young girls (and some boys) who will want to read the whole series quickly.… (more)

The Weather Fairies series picks up where the Rainbow Magic series left off - with Kirsty relishing her victory against the evil Jack Frost and the return of the Rainbow Fairies to Fairyland. There is a bit of mystery and cunning in these stories and the magical world is intertwined with the real world. The Fairy Land world complements the secret adventures Kirsty and Rachel get into beyond their parents knowledge, and offer characters with a superior ability to set things right and good - like they were before - without ever needing their parents help or doubting themselves or their cause.
Although the stories lack much substance and originality, and gender is constructed in a very limited way - the formula of having girls without any discernible character adventure with fairies is pretty fail safe. The illustrations are simple, but highly effective in drawing out the story and providing a larger context in which to see the whole series and the many places it will take Kirsty and Rachel.
