Review of "The Three Lost Kids and the Death of the Sugar Fairy"
Even with all of the magic and fantasy, the characters are true to life. The sisters alternately care for, scare, admire, and annoy each other with whining, complaining, and insecurities. They love their adventure and two seconds later miss their parents like crazy. I also liked that some of their magical abilities had consequences, so everything couldn’t be wrapped up too easily. When the girls use their ability to fly, for example, they cannot fly too high and the wings use their back muscles which tire quickly because they are not used to flying long distances.
With action, candy, and sisters that act like real children, Three Lost Kids and the Death of the Sugar Fairy is a great choice for both boys and girls.
