As far as the Fairy Queen was concerned, the Fairy-who-wouldn’t-fly was lazy and so she banished her to the Woodn’t, the place where she had sent all the other creatures who wouldn’t do as they should. There, the Fairy-who-wouldn’t-fly met many friends—the Kookaburra-who-wouldn’t laugh, the Bee-who-wouldn’t-live-in-a-hive, the Frog-who-wouldn’t-hop. Find out how they worked together to return to Fairyland, and how they convinced the Fairy Queen that they had good ideas of their own about how to live their lives.

The magic tale of The Fairy Who Wouldn’t Fly, adapted by Bronwyn Davies for today’s children, was originally written and illustrated by Pixie O’Harris in 1945.
