About the Book

Once upon a time in a far away land, there lived the tiniest fairy moth of them all. Her name was Gingledorf. Gingledorf finds herself in pickles and jams because her magic gets a bit whoopsie and too much fairy dust sprinkling has unfortunate effects. For example, there was the time she sat on the poor snail. With the help of some good friends and lots of cups of hot chocolate, she figures out how to make things just fairy perfect.


About the Author

Marta is a nana who learned that the very best way to teach life lessons is through a story. Her grandchildren always wanted the same story over and over, so she started to write them down. It was a family joke that when the children got a bit loud and rolling around like a pile of puppies, she could whisper “Once upon a time in a far away land” and they would instantly be quiet and sitting at her feet ready for another story. The illustrator is her granddaughter Avery Visola, who is fifteen and started illustrating Gingledorf stories seven years ago. Avery combines the childlike innocence of the stories with her talent for capturing the emotion of the facial expressions of the characters. She is the inspiration for the princess character in the stories.
