Sienna, the Cowgirl Fairy

Trying to Make it Rain

Synopsis:

Sienna is not your normal cowgirl, for she’s half human and half fairy. But Sienna wants nothing to do with fairies. When her ma sends her to fairy camp instead of cowgirl camp, she ain’t none too happy. Not only must she deal with cliquish fairies who reject her spunky spirit and outspoken ways, she must also noodle out how to help Mother Nature end the Texas drought. Can Sienna balance cowgirling with some tried ’n’ true fairy skills to both fit in and make it rain? A story about perseverance, friendship, teamwork, self-acceptance, and acceptance of others.

“Kids need great role models...and girls, especially, need to find strong female characters in the books they read. Sienna, the Cowgirl Fairy to the rescue!!!!!

This fun-filled action-packed chapter book will delight every girl and plenty of boys, too. The boot-stomping antics never stop as Sienna tries to adjust to Fairy Camp. And when she sets her sights on making it rain, it's her biggest challenge ever.


This is definitely a page turner that kids will enjoy reading as well as listening to. I can't wait for the sequel!”
Vivian Kirkfield, Amazon




“This is a fun chapter book with adorable illustrations. Alayne Kay Christian's writing practically jumps off the page, it is so lively- just like Sienna herself. Sienna is a fairy who "ain't much for fairyin." This story is for anyone who has ever felt like they don't quite fit in. Follow Sienna on her adventures as she learns it's ok to just be herself.” Tonya Calvert, Amazon



“A cowgirl fairy? What's not to love? I immediately fell in love with Sienna's unique voice and strong personality. Readers will get hooked following the adventures of this strong willed, but loving character. The melding of cowgirl and fairy is flawless and is relatable to children who sometimes have trouble figuring out who they really are. On top of all of that, readers learn a little science! I can't wait to read the next installment!” Ellen, Amazon
