Scary Fairy in Wicked Wood by Jana Bauer

Have you ever met a fairy that romps about, disturbs the peace, corrupts the young and swears? 

Watch out, here comes Scary Fairy!

 Banished by her grandmother after breaking one of her beloved china teacups, she decides to search for pastures new, landing at the whim of Southern Wind in Wicked Wood. Wicked Wood is only occasionally wicked, but full of delightful animals with strong characters. 

Living in Wicked Wood are motherly Owl, and thoughtful Bear, grumpy Hedgehog, highly-strung Squirrel, poetic Salamander and many others. 

The animals of Wicked Wood have no idea how dramatically the stubborn, brave and crafty Scary fairy will change their lives.
