Buttercup is one of the prettiest flower fairies of the summer and her friend Poppy thinks it would be wonderful if they have a Summer Ball to celebrate the new season. Everyone is soon as busy as can be getting ready for the ball. There are invitations to be written and delivered, dresses and flowers to be made beautiful, and dance steps to be practiced.

At last the night of the ball arrives and what a night it turns out to be.

Packaged in a pretty yellow bag with handles and with a yellow flower necklace, this book would make a perfect gift for any little girl who is thinking of throwing her own little summer ball.
