This is the third book in a delightfully quirky and funny series for girls told in comic-strip and featuring Glister Butterworth - girl-magnet for the weird and unusual. It is coming up to Halloween and already Glister's father is bustling around getting ready for Christmas! The Butterworths are putting up decorations for the tree and making preparations for the big day, but Glister is sad - her mother is missing and Christmas just wouldn't be the same without her. She is determined to find her mum and solve the mystery of her disappearance. However, boundary changes in the area mean Faerieland and Whixleyshire's borders now meet right outside Glister's front door. Once Glister has ventured into Faerieland in search of her beloved lost mum, very strange things start to happen and her biggest challenge will be finding her way home again. This book comes with fun instructions to make your own Faerie Head from an apple and create and play your own game of Glister Flickers. At the end of the book, there is a short comic introducing readers to the next story in the series, Glister: The Family Tree . Glister is a compelling little female heroine who will find fans in new readers as well as the many followers of Andi Watson too.
