That's Not My Fairy...
Author: Fiona Watt Illustrator: Rachel Wells
Lots of different fairies are introduced throughout this book, but none of them are quite right. 'That’s not my fairy. Her wings are too fluffy.'
Young children will be delighted when, on the final page, the perfect fairy appears. The pages of this sturdy touch-and-feel board book are wipe-clean with rounded corners, which makes them very durable.
The book’s simple illustrations, contrasting colours and variety of textures make it particularly suitable for visually impaired children. Look out for other great titles in the series, including That’s Not My Train and That’s Not My Puppy.
After gaining a degree in Education at Exeter University, Fiona worked as a writer and researcher for a publishing company who produced booklets for zoos and museums, and then as a teacher in Kent and the Netherlands.
She joined Usborne Publishing as an assistant editor in 1989, and is now editorial director. Fiona has gone on to produce over 150 titles for Usborne and frequently features in charts of best-selling authors. Her books include the award-winning That's Not My... series, The Beginner's Cookbook series, and many fantastic activity and cloth books.
Take your child on a magical journey with our Magic booklist that includes books about the magic of the imagination as well as real witches, wizards and fairies.

Love this book - highly recommend the 'that's not my' books as my daughter loves them. We both love everything princess and fairy related so I had to buy this book for her. We love feeling the different textures.

The that's not my books are rather fun. My daughter now seems to be enjoying opening up the pages and feeling the textures now she's about 8 months old. My personal favourite so far is that's not my robot but I think Eloise likes all the animal ones in her collection. OK maybe that's not my lamb is her favourite. :)

Olivia loved reading the story and the repetition made it easy to understand and follow for her. But most of all Olivia loves feeling all the textures especially the fluffy fairy wings!

One of our favourites, my eldest now "reads" it to her little sister. Wonderful to see how they can share a book and the experience together. We have collected a lot of books from this collection.

BAby loves the touchy feely bits in this book, she finds them by herself now :)

Faith-Imogen loved looking at this book, she finds the textures fun to explore. She smiled at the pictures. It's nice that they are repetitive because it means that when she is older she will start to repeat the words and start to recognise the words.

My daughter has had a selection of these books since birth and always loves looking at them, she will read them to her baby brother now she is older

My little girl loves feeling the different wings, she may only be 10/11 weeks but can distinguish the difference in texture.

Freya has a few of the "That's not my....." collection, but this one is her favourite. She loves touching the pages and tries to turn them over before you can!
