Competitions

At the end of most books, there is information on competitions. To win, the readers usually have to:

  • find letters scattered around the book and rearrange them to make a word
  • write 30 words on which fairy is their favourite
  • find the mystery fairy from clues throughout a series and rearrange her first name to make a word
  • answer a series of questions correctly and send in the answers

The prize is usually 'Rainbow Magic goodies' or have your name be featured in a story.

Editions published a while after the original publish date may not have a special word or feature a competition.
