No Flying in the House – Betty Brock

Cute

Fantastical

Imaginative

What better way to entertain young kids than a story with a tiny talking dog, a girl who doesn’t know she’s a fairy, and a family reunion?  This is a very sweet and imaginative tale about a young girl who learns she has powers.  But will keeping these powers be temptation enough to keep her from wanting a mom and dad?

Annabel has a tiny, talking, trick-performing dog named Gloria instead of parents.  She loves Gloria but what she wants more than anything else are parents.  One day she learns she is a fairy (and she can fly!) soon she has to make a choice.

This is a delightful tale about love, honesty, forgiveness, sacrifice, and family.  It’s a perfect book for snuggling two to a chair and reading aloud, preferably with homemade cookies and a warm drink.  I would definitely recommend this book to readers young and old alike.

  1. A sweet review. It has been a few years since I have read these books to my now tween granddaughter. These days, I’m lucky if I get to take her to a movie. Your description of reading two to a chair pangs my heart. i guess I will have to wait for great grandchildren and hope I can still see the print.
