Kelly lives in the capital with her mother and father. She will be going into second grade next autumn. When Kelly was little, she loved the colour pink more than anything in the world. She would always pretend to be a fairy or a princess. Now, she likes a lot of other colours, too; such as black. All of Kelly’s tiaras and fairy wings have been packed away in a cardboard box in the cellar. Depending on how she feels, the little girl now pretends to be a pirate, an interior designer, a psychologist, a baker, or a hairdresser. And sometimes she is simply an ordinary kid, to whom all kinds of things happen – funny things just as well as nasty things; both serious things and fun things.

The first book in the series, titled Kelly – Almost a Fairy, was published in 2008 and is intended for slightly younger readers.
