Fresh, new fairy tales, with a classic feel. No scary characters in the mushroom patch; purposely written that way, meet Lilly, Boris & Jack!

Have you ever wondered where fairies get their fairy dust? Lilly and Boris are two mischievous young fairies who leave their home without permission.

Boris has flown too fast and tumbles to the forest floor, where he injures his ankle and bends his wing. Meanwhile, the fairy dorm monitor realizes the naughty little fairies are missing and organizes a search party. Once the two are escorted safely back home, Boris is admitted into the infirmary and Lilly is put to bed.

To teach them a lesson, Lilly and Boris are put to work for a few days in the fairy dust factory. The factory is an incredible place, producing more fairy dust than any other. Lilly and Boris witness the magic of fairy dust coming to life as they watch it dance and sparkle in the large storage barrels.

The two learn a valuable lesson about this wonderful dust that they have always taken for granted and vow never to be so careless with it again.

"Boris, were you supposed to be flying today?" asked Lilly.

Eyes filled with tears and his head in his hands, Boris slowly shook his head. He shouldn't have been flying, and he certainly shouldn't have been so far away from the patch. He was hurt, felt very queasy, sad, and disappointed in himself, and, if that wasn't enough, he was incredibly embarrassed.

"Oh Boris," Lilly sighed. "Will you ever learn to listen to Mademoiselle Francesca?"

She raised her eyebrows and pointed her finger at him as she spoke.

"Rule number three: Never fly on your assigned no-fly days!"

Boris lifted his head, wiped his eyes and nose, and tried very hard to answer Lilly without crying. It was no use; tears started flowing all over again.

"Well, I can assure you, I wish I had listened," he said between sniffles. "You're not completely in the clear yourself, you know."

It was true. Lilly had broken the rules as well, the most important one, rule number one at that!

Never leave the patch without permission and specifically without supervision, unless absolutely necessary!

She thought that now would be a good time to stop scolding Boris. They had, after all, both broken the rules. Not to mention that Boris had a terrible look on his face and was actually turning a really weird shade of green.
