Evie and the Strawberry Surprise

Evie is a determined, ingenious and bright little Strawberry Fairy who lives in an old teapot. Join Evie and her friends, the flower fairies and creatures of Wildberry Acres, on their magical adventures in this third book in the Evie the Strawberry Fairy series.

Something strange is happening in Wildberry Acres: Evie has lost her magic wand, her strawberries have turned bright blue, and strange noises have been heard coming from Berry Woods. Her friends blame the scary creature who has just moved there, but they're in for a surprise... Can Evie find out the truth and make a new friend at the same time?

Evie's adventures will teach young children about courage and curiosity as she and her friends learn not to be afraid of those who are different. Stefanie Dahle's illustrations are delightfully detailed and full of character and fun.

"Evie the Strawberry Fairy’s magic wand has gone missing, and then Evie notices her strawberries have turned bright blue. This latter occurrence is the titular “strawberry surprise,” and Evie is curious but not alarmed. The same can’t be said of three friends—an unnamed hedgehog, Summer the Sunshine Fairy, and Laurel the Tree Sprite—who all come to Evie voicing fears about “a scary Hogwitchit [who] has moved into Berry Woods.” Summer is fearful after seeing a strange shadow, Laurel’s hair is stained orange, and the hedgehog has red splotches all over his quills. Resourceful Evie packs a bag with supplies that end up coming in handy when she and her friends go off in search of the Hogwitchit. Lo and behold, it’s actually a vole who prides himself on his berry jam. They quickly discover that the vole mistook Evie’s magic wand for a spoon and has been using it to try to make jam, and this mix-up explains all the strange surprises and changes the friends have experienced. Evie quickly puts things to rights and gifts the vole a trowel he can use as a spoon. Everyone enjoys jam cookies at book’s end. Dahle’s illustrations are as cozy as her story, the interiors of these woodland homes snug melds of nature and found human objects. The animals are lightly anthropomorphized; humanoid characters present White.

This German import (by way of Scotland) is sweet as tea cakes. "
