Janomi the fairy isn?t supposed to talk to humans, but desperately needs help. Her grandfather, Papa Faff, has been captured by Queen Bernini and the silver spiders. Gemma agrees to help Janomi, and to keep the fairies' existence a secret. But her bug catcher has recorded their conversation - and Nina finds it. With a media frenzy taking over Bunnaloo, ASIO barge in to take control, and suddenly the fairy colony is under threat by something bigger and more evil than Queen Bernini.Gemma and her kooky family, school and resourceful neighbours must take matters into their own hands in an against-all-odds bid to save the last fairy colony on Earth.
