Most little girls would think that the ability to be able to see miniture flying mytholigical was a dream come true, but for Tanya it's a nightmare because these faries aren't the ones that have pretty little wings and go around granting wishes, these faries are trickety and bothersome, not all of them have wings too, some love to spend their day down a slimy drain other would prefer to make a home in a pot.
