More of a kid's story, I think, but the artwork is good and the little town is just so sweet; I loved it. Saga, a little girl who lives with her grandmother in a small village in Germany (I think?) sees a tiny fairy weak from hunger while running through the rain and feeds it a waffle cookie. The fairy, Sugar, decides to be friends with this human who can somehow see her, and explains that she is a snow fairy in training. Fairies are there to make the weather, such as her friends Salt and Pepper the sun and wind fairies. Sugar finds being friends with Saga hard going, as Saga is VERY obsessed (to the point of being obnoxious sometimes) with doing everything on schedule and Sugar always upsets her plans. They do manage to become friends; it just takes a while. Much of the story revolves around Sugar working to become a good snow fairy like her mother, and Saga wanting to play the piant like her late mother did. Lots of different characters like the rich self-proclaimed rival, the pervy elder fairy, the other fairies (the fairies all act like 5 year olds, by the way). All in all, I liked it for a quick read, but it's definitely not a favorite. VERY cutesy, so you have to really like that or be in the mood for it. And not a particularly complex storyline, so a younger kid could definitely enjoy it.
