Every night Sylvia whispers a magic spell to the rhyme-elves. In the morning her Wonder Book is filled with beautiful pictures and poems of her adventures and the extraordinary stories she has heard. Every day Sylvia asks her mother, the old woodsman, and even her fairy friend Sister-in-the-Bushes, to tell them to her. They weave magical stories of clever princesses, far-away kingdoms, courageous knights, kind children, and graceful fairies.
Sylvia also has her own adventures: planting a fairy tree, meeting St Nicholas and venturing into the deep woods. But as she comes closer to her special seventh birthday, there is one extraordinary adventure left.
This enchanting collection of tales takes us through the highlights of the year as Sylvia and her friends celebrate festivals and birthdays.
