    The Fairy Bell Sisters #4: Clara and the Magical Charms
    Aspiring young fairies who adore Rainbow Magic and Disney Fairies will delight in the fourth magical installment in Margaret McNamara's Fairy Bell Sisters series, about Tinker Bell's little sisters. All the fairies on Sheepskerry Island look up to Clara Bell. Clara can do anything, which is why the younger Bell sisters—Rosy, Goldie, Sylva, and Squeak—are so proud of her. But when Clara starts to grow into her magical powers, things get a little bumpy. At first it's fun to practice her charms, especially since a colony of gnomes is visiting Sheepskerry Island for the Valentine's Games . . . and one of them, Rowan, seems to like her—very much. But when Clara and Rowan are faced with very serious trouble, Clara tries to do magic that's too hard for her—way too hard for her. Will she have to pay a terrible price? Julia Denos sprinkles her signature fairy dust on each and every page, bringing the illustrations of the Fairy Bell Sisters to life.
