Freddie And The Fairy by Julia Donaldson | Children's Stories at The Works

Freddie is desperate for a pet, so when he rescues Bessie-Belle and she offers to grant his wishes he knows just what to ask for. The only problem is that Bessie-Belle can't hear very well, and Freddie tends to mumble. Whatever can they do? Luckily the Fairy Queen is on hand to explain. Illustrated by Karen George, Freddie and the Fairy is a delightful tale full of Julia Donaldson's trademark rhyme and wit, with a subtle message about hearing impairments. I bought this as we love all JD books but discovered that it has a really great message.
