Author, actress, and certified fairyologist Aiysha Sinclair has written a young readers chapter book called ‘Brown Sugar Fairies: Saroja’s Quest‘.
There has always been a void in fantasy and fairytales for girls of color, but Aiysha Sinclair aims to change that with her book series and accompanying online community, ‘Brown Sugar Fairies’. The first installment is a young readers book entitled ‘Saroja’s Quest’, and she’s also done the ‘Enchanted Fairies Coloring and Activity Book’. Both have been brought to life by artist Joyceline Furniss who also provided a cover for Amandla Stenberg’s comic ‘Niobe: She is Life’. Saroja’s Quest can be pre-ordered now on Kickstarter where it was awarded a Project We Love designation.
“I want to share stories about fairies that come from a place not so distant from our own,” said author Aiysha Sinclair. “Stories that will provoke curiosity and open the reader up to a world of magic and fantasy with characters that reflect our image. But above all, Brown Sugar Fairies is a healing tale about the magic of friendship.”
