I've been looking for years, trying to figure out if a book I think I read as a kid existed or not. It was a girl (I think a fairy) in a green dress and a blue cape, with dirty blonde hair in thick curls on the cover, and it had something to do with hiding a flute in a tree stump. I have no idea whether or not this is real, but I'm always on google trying to find out the name of the book.

I remember it was in a trilogy, the two other books having one girl in a pink dress with a horse, the other a blue dress with a basket. Do you have any idea what this book could be?

  • Do you remember any names from the book? What year did you read it, where did you read it, and when and where do you think it was written?

Laurel the Woodfairy front cover

This was a series of three books, and the publishers also put out two (or so) other series that looked similar visually.
