A magical fairy story about believing in yourself, perfect for children learning to read. From the author of Dilly the Dinosaur.
Flora the Fairy enjoys school. But one day, her teacher tells them they will be tested on their magic skills the next day. They have to change the class dragon, Smoky, into something else, and back again. All the children start practising but, try as she might, Flora can't remember the words of the spell. She keeps getting it wrong! Even her friend Harry can do it right - what will Flora's mummy and daddy say when she doesn't pass the test?
Luckily, Flora's parents, with the help of Nana and Grandpop, show Flora that all she needs to do is relax. They have great fun changing things into other things at home. And the following day, Flora passes the test with flying colours!
