Zeee hates people. Other than that, she's not such a bad fairy. People, the only creatures that can't see her, always end up destroying her living quarters. Poor Zeee gets flung out of a sand pail, washed out of a watering can, and smoked out of an old wasps' nest. All Zeee really wants is a place where she can live in peace. But will she ever find one? Full color.

User Review  - Goodreads

I was honestly a bit disappointed when Zeee stopped hating people - I loved her revenge plots. That said, this is a book I remember fondly from my childhood that has stood up over time. Read full review
