Meet the Characters


Grace, big sister to Evie, loves to play amongst the wild flowers and flittery-fluttery butterflies at the bottom of the garden. Who knew that she'd discover a magical Butterfly Fairy Kingdom there!


Evie adores playing all day with her big sister Grace, but by the afternoon she has to take a nap because her night-time waking makes her so tired. But all that is about to change when she meets Bessie and Rosie, the Butterfly Fairies!


Bessie loves to look after sleeping children in the night-time by sprinkling magical fairy dust over them to give them sweet dreams. She even has a special Sparkly Sleepy-Time Wand to help children feel safe at night!


Rosie enjoys magical spells by waving her wand and filling the air with shimmering puffs of fairy dust. She uses her magic to change Grace and Evie to the same size as the tiny fairies. Now they can explore the Butterfly Fairy Kingdom!

Lucy Benjamin

The actress Lucy Benjamin, most well known for her role in Eastenders, brings the story to life in her animated audio version of the book on the accompanying CD. Lucy is a Patron of Rosie’s Rainbow Fund and has two young daughters, Bessie and Rosie.
