Evie and the Strawberry Balloon Ride
by Stefanie Dahle
Age Range: Under_5
Evie the determined and resourceful little Strawberry Fairy is back in a new title from German author/illustrator Stefanie Dahle. Evie lives in Wildberry Acres in an old teapot surrounded by her fairy and forest friends. Everyone is preparing for the Strawberry Fair and Evie would love to win first prize with her inventive creation of a hot-air balloon. On her way to the competition she encounters some creatures of Wildberry Acres who need her help. Now Evie must decide what is more important to her: winning or helping others?
Another charming tale by Dahle, translated by Polly Lawson, following on from Evie and the Strawberry Patch Rescue (2018). It combines a magical world with teaching children that working together and caring for one another is sometimes more important than personal ambition. The vibrant hand-drawn detailed expressive illustrations are in a mix of pencils, watercolour paint, pastels and gouache making this a very appealing second story about Evie.
