No Flying in the House by Betty Brock (1970)

flying.jpgThis story will thrill any little girl who’s ever dreamed she is really a fairy princess!

Who wouldn’t want to be little Annabel?  She lives in a mansion by the sea with a wealthy, elderly widow, she has a doting nanny, and she owns a tiny three-inch dog named Gloria —  who talks!  Could life get any better?

Yes, it can.

One day while playing in the drawing room alone, Annabel discovers a mysterious golden toy cat with emerald eyes.  This strange cat, who can also speak, announces that Annabel is NOT a regular little girl.  In fact, she’s really a fairy!

Before she knows what’s happening, Annabel discovers she can do many amazing things — including FLY around the house!  This should be the best of news, but what Annabel really wants to know is, “Who are my parents and WHERE ARE THEY??”  No Flying in the House is filled with several exciting mysteries for your little fairy princess to discover!
