Pish and Posh “An I Can Read” chapter book, is written and illustrated by Barbara Bottner. Pish and Posh are best friends who live in the same house. One day The Fairy Handbook mysteriously arrives with a “thud” outside their door. Pish warns Posh against reading and using the The Fairy Handbook but Posh is too curious to resist. Before long she has learned how to magically bring a troll, mermaid and giant into their house. Posh soon understands that being a beginning fairy is hard work, and possibly big trouble. Will she ask her wise friend Pish for help? Read Pish and Posh to find out if this fairy in training can find a happy ending for her magical adventures.  (Jean B.
