Kittie Lacey is the best hairdresser in all of Fairyland. . . A brave, stylish heroine for whom no tangle is too troublesome and no frizz too fearsome! . .  It's almost time for the Flower Festival and Kitty Lacey's salon is bursting with people who would like a special floral hairstyle. This is the Flower People's favourite time of year but they have all mysteriously disappeared.

All except one: Thumbelina. But when Thumbelina vanishes too, can Kittie save the day with the help of a bluebird, a sprinkle of magic and some fabulous fairytale fashion?
