Dear Fairy Princess Diamond,
You have entranced my family and friends for years now at all our parties (I think we’ve seen your show about 15 times now!!)
I would like to tell you something that I hope you never forget…you are a very special person.
You have a gift with children. I have seen the most shy children melt in your company within minutes, when they would normally tuck themselves in a corner somewhere. I know you hear me say this to you time and time again, but I thought it was about time I put this in writing and sent it to you to keep.
You really have a quality in you that is one word: magnetic.
You are a million characters all in the one body and you deliver each one when you need to with such ease, style and humour. All the parents watch you come up with your marvellous stories off the top of your head, like a Harry Potter book come to life!
We all love you so much and want you to know about the impact you have had on us. I know that when my children are grandparents (in 80 years!) they will tell their grandchildren all about the tales of Fairy Princess Diamond who is still young and beautiful, dancing somewhere in Fairyland.
