With the help of shooting stars, magical rain showers, and bewitching lullabies, Cricket seeks to end the vengeful grudge between the giant and the witch, in order to free the nightingale from the spell. The Water Fairy Festival is only held once every ten years. Following the festival, Blue attends a Gulf region fairy circle and learns the sad tale of the fisherman and the mermaid: After a thirty-year journey to the Ends of the Seas on a quest to find the Green Sea Diamond , the fisherman returns to find his dearest love, the mermaid, Allure, has died.

Blue and her friends set out on a mission to Ocean Merland, the underwater home of the saltwater merfolk. They meet Allure's sister, Denoue, who helps them find a way for the fisherman to be reunited with his love when he makes his final journey - the one into the hereafter. When an epidemic of terrible plant disease begins sweeping the earth, she must form an unusual alliance with four of the Fairies of Necessity: Mistletoe, Nettle, Hemlock, and Nightshade.

The Fairies of Necessity were created for very different purposes than most fairies, and they don't usually solve problems or fix things like traditional fairies. The Fairies of Necessity have jobs such as decay, defense, killing off weak members of plant species, controlling insect populations, and keeping things balanced in nature. Aloe, Snapdragon, Ginger, and Periwinkle must team up with the Fairies of Necessity to locate the legendary Spring of Hale, a source of magical healing water, to stop the plant disease from spreading further.

The adventure includes a visit to a magic treehouse and a graveyard. During their dangerous journey, the fairies encounter two talking insects - a caterpillar and a walking stick. They also meet a charming stranger before eventually facing off with Putresce, the Spirit of Decay and Disease. With the exception of Primrose, just back from an out-of-town visit to her grandparents, all of the fairies are acting completely opposite their normal characters.

The special gifts that make fairies like little superheroes seem to have disappeared. Cinnabar, with her extraordinary night abilities, is afraid of going out after dark. Harlequin, the fairy of jokes, can't stop crying. Blue, an excellent swimmer, is suddenly afraid of the water. And Dove, the fairy of peace, can't seem to keep from getting into arguments. Even Madam Toad is acting strangely: The fairy leader can't seem to make a decision. Pumpkinwing, Teasel, and Primrose must work diligently, without any guidance from fairy mentors, to solve the mystery of what has happened.

Three brownies also join in the effort to help put things right. Along with Madam Shrew and Milkweed, she welcomes visitors Pumpkinwing, Teasel, and Firefly to a special fairy circle. A great many trolls live in the far North region. Trolls are ordinarily confused much of the time and are not too smart. Keen is unique among trolls because he is brilliant.

The fairies set out on a mission to consult Mr. Keen about a problem involving a lost ogre child named Tad. Then they must seek out a rare troll butterfly to help lead the rock-throwing, tantrum-prone Tad home to his family. During this adventure, we learn the history of toadstool rings; and the fairies conduct an important toadstool ring experiment to benefit their local troll friends. Along with Calliope and Pumpkinwing, Teasel discovers the secret of a magic dresser and a tiny witch in a bottle. The fairies must work diligently to solve the three mysteries, and to help break a curse to free the witch.

When two fairies disappear, she must find a way to locate them in the Land of Bliss, and bring them back without getting trapped there herself. With the help of a magic clock, and her friends Rosemary and Teasel, Calliope travels through a portal in a white poplar tree stump. In a somewhat mixed-up, time-travel adventure, the fairies actually meet their leader, Madam Toad, as a young fairy. She helps them free their friends from the Land of Bliss and seal the doorway to prevent other fairies from becoming trapped in the magical land where no one cares about anything.

Without the Basket, caring and kindness would not exist. But the old woman has to continually work on the Basket. If she ever stops constructing it, all understanding will be lost to mankind. Similarly, an old man, who is a friend to the old woman, must constantly weave the Blanket of Comfort that produces security and ease for all creatures of the earth.

The fairies must try to find a way for the woman and man to finish their endless tasks. For this purpose, they seek out a matchbox genie. During their adventure, the fairies also discover how sphiloxes - elf fairies of light - are born. Winterberry, a fairy who never ages, is forever trapped in the garden.

This article has previously been published in Norwegian in Aftenposten Historie no.

Due to several requests, I have now also translated it into English. The purpose of the expedition was to update the British Navy's charts using new technology. But that's not why this journey is still remembered today. Captain Robert FitzRoy also wanted a naturalist on board, and -- quite by chance -- he commissioned the 22 year old geologist Charles Darwin.

And so Mr. Darwin was struck by the revolutionary realisation that living beings, over the course of generations, adapt to survive in varying surroundings and consequently branch out into what we call species. What actually happened was, of course, not that simple.

Nothing rules the world more than mere chance, and a long chain of events led to Darwin's groundbreaking discovery.

The Fairy Chronicles

One of these coincidences was his meeting with a mysterious man braving the elements on a remote island on the Equator. A man who, just like Darwin, grew up not knowing what a tortoise was at all. On the highland plateau, a few hours' walk through dense jungle, was the settlement of Asilo de la Paz with roughly inhabitants and the governor's residence. But the Acting Governor, an Englishman named Nicholas Oliver Lawson, boarded the ship and invited some of its crew to dine with him at the settlement. During the meal, the conversation turned to the many tortoise shells lying scattered around the simple light-frame huts.

Lawson boasted that he could determine with a glance from which island any tortoise was collected, their shells being slightly specific to each island. Darwin, the naturalist, made a mental note of this comment. But it took him several years to realize what larger truth was hidden in this little tidbit. In the second, revised edition of his report from the journey, published in , he added:. I had not as yet noticed by far the most remarkable feature in the natural history of this archipelago; it is, that the different islands to a considerable extent are inhabited by a different set of beings.

My attention was first called to this fact by the Vice-Governor, Mr. Lawson, declaring that the tortoises differed from the different islands, and that he could with certainty tell from which island any one was brought. I did not for some time pay sufficient attention to this statement. During his stay on the islands, Darwin did not study the tortoises in detail and he never tried to fact check Lawson's statement. Most of the tortoises brought on board the Beagle were eaten on the way home, and the shells were tossed over board along with other refuse. But after he came home, Darwin started cataloguing his collection of mockingbirds.

And gradually, he realised that Lawson was right: The birds also varied slightly from island to island. And this was more than a little fun fact: They all looked superficially like the species found on the South American mainland Apart from that, they were identical and would have been deemed the same species. Darwin was not originally a zoologist. Following his father's advice he became a priest, but he also studied geology on his own initiative, and this was his primary task during the Beagle expedition. In spite of this, the islands harboured a large quantity of species like the mockingbirds, obviously fine-tuned to survive in this young environment.

Vice Governor Lawson, supposedly an Englishman born in Jamaica, has later become a key character in the field of Darwin studies. In Sandra Herbert, professor of science history and a Darwin biographer, wrote:. How are we then to interpret the initial effect of Lawson's comment on Darwin? In , the British biologist and Darwin expert David Lack wrote an article about Lawson in the research journal "American Scientist". Among his views were that:. It may be wondered whether the 'Origin of Species' would have been written if Mr.

Lawson had not existed. But Lack couldn't tell us exactly who this man was. The Vice Governor who happened to be in the right place at the right time, and unwittingly sparked Darwin's chain of thought, has long been enveloped in a shroud of mystery. There are no traces of him in British or Jamaican registries.

No censuses, birth or navy records mention him at all. He was from a small farm on a small island in the fjords of Western Norway. They were not your traditional family of sailors. From Nicolai was five until he was twelve years old, they lived in Oppdal in the inland of Norway, far away from the sea. When they moved back to Sekken Island, he became fascinated by the ships and sailors in the harbour of Molde, the nearest port city. They sailed all winter and on the way home in spring, captain Dahl fell over board and drowned. Shortly after returning home he left again, this time on a Scottish ship going to England.

The captain treated him poorly and cheated him out of his pay. When they stopped over in Liverpool, Nicolai left the ship. Or perhaps he was fired, it's impossible to tell. But going back home with captain Adam Morrison was apparently not an option. We can imagine a penniless teenager walking the docks of Liverpool, the busiest port in the world at the time, not speaking the language and trying to find a ship bound home.

He would soon realise that no ships were going to Norway. International politics had come in the way. After the British Navy attacked Copenhagen in September , prince regent Frederik of Denmark forged an alliance with Britain's arch enemy, emperor Napoleon. The British responded with a massive embargo of the North Sea. For years, not a single trading ship sailed between England and Norway, causing a famine that would be remembered for generations.

At age 17, Nicolai signed on a ship going to Brazil. He would never see his family again. Nicolai Olaus Lossius could easily have become just another cabin boy who left home, leaving nothing but a name in the baptism records. But he lived to be an old man, and eventually he wrote several letters home from the other side of the world.
