A child who loses her way seeks help from 12 multicultural and multigenerational fairies who give her practical life advice to get on the right track.

Trying to possess its beauty, Esperanza chases after a butterfly, which inevitably leaves her behind, lost and scared. Then, she meets 12 Fortune Fairies. Among them is the Fortune Fairy of Beauty, who talks about the beautiful butterfly that flew away and comforts Esperanza by saying: “Beauty is not what you see with your eyes but with your heart.” The other Fortune Fairies likewise give Esperanza words to live by to discover her true path.

Hope and Fortune is a children's book with positive and frank messages about empowerment and self-discovery, designed to stay with a child well beyond childhood.

Through her nontraditional Fortune Fairies, Marissa Bañez uses unvarnished words and vivid images to convey inspirational, aspirational, and optimistic perspectives on meeting some of life's challenges. Hope and Fortune is an invaluable toolbox containing tools to help children cope in their personal life journeys. It is a must-listen not only for children, but for everyone who has ever felt lost.
