The Legend Of Dust Bunnies: A Fairy’s Tale by Michelle Eastman (PLUS a Special Giveaway!)


Title: The Legend of Dust Bunnies: a fairy’s tale

Author: Michelle Eastman

Illustrator: Kevin Richter

Publisher/Year: Byway Press/2014

Back Cover Blurb: Join the Dust Fairies on their messy nighttime adventures, and discover how one misfit fairy uses his talent to create something legendary. His story will have families looking at dust bunnies in a new light and may actually give kids an excuse NOT to clean their rooms.

Before I begin my review, I want to report that the Dust Fairies are frequent visitors to my house and, in fact, I do believe they were here just last night. Now, let’s get to the review.

The Legend of Dust Bunnies: a fairy’s tale answers a question many of us have had, probably for a very long time–Where in the world does all that dust come from? And the answer is Dust Fairies! Dust Fairies come out at night and spread, not just dust, but also crumbs, soot, and cobwebs. And they take pride in their work, all of them, except Artie, a freckle-faced fairy who prefers collecting lint, fur, and hair to spreading around dust and crumbs. Because he’s different from the other fairies, he feels lonely and outcast, so he decides to make himself a friend, and thus the Dust Bunny is born. When the others see his new pal, they each beg to have one too, and Artie, proud of his creation, is happy to oblige.

Together, author Michelle Eastman and illustrator Kevin Richter have created an enchanting fairy world that exists right alongside our world. Michelle’s rollicking, rhyming text is fun to read. And the story moves along at a comfortable, easy pace. Kevin’s colorful Dust Fairy characters are sure to be a hit with even the pickiest fairy fanatics. For me, the best part is the adorable Dust Bunnies, each one a perfect match to his Dust Fairy.

    DUST bunnies!!!!! They are alive and well in my house. So glad you gave me a story for my Grandkiddies to talk about and laugh as they search for Dust Fairies and Bunnies all over my house.

  2. Such a fun and adorable tale of how we acquire dustbunnies. Dustbunnies are among my favorite inhabitants…I’ve been known to let them just be…trying to chase them out is a fruitless occupation. Would love to have a copy of this treasure! Congratulations!

    Sounds like a delightful story – and just the kind of lovely magic this world is in such need of. I have a plethora of the blighters under my bed – and not the little sweeties described here: Mine are more kind of genetically modified nightmares straight out of a Hieronymus Bosch painting. Hey ho! I’ll stick with yours, please!
