Someone on MN said that their daughter loved some books about the Magic Circle or Fairy Circle (rather unhelpfully I can’t remember the thread where they mentioned them). If any of you know the books I’m referring to, please could you let me know?

Possibly the Rainbow Magic series which is about fairies - incredibly repetitive but kids can’t get enough of them!

Isadora Moin books are great, amd my daughter is currently reading famous five books (well my husband reads her them)
