Gemma the Gymnastics Fairy is the seventh and last fairy in the Sporty Fairies series.
Fairy Profile from the Official RM Facebook Page:
Gemma's Magic Hoop helps keep the Fairy Olympics on track. It shimmers with blue sparkles. Her magic wand sends out a glittery trail of magical yellow fairy dust. Gemma realizes that it's easy to get discouraged when it seems you're not improving at your chosen sport. She says sometimes improvement comes in tiny steps, but if we keep at it those tiny steps will lead to a triple back somersault with a three quarter twist and a perfect landing!
Gemma has light brown hair in a bun, tied with a yellow ribbon. She wears a light blue leotard, yellow leggings and a yellow bow-shaped pendant. Her wings are pointy and yellow tinted.
Symbol: Yellow bows.
Job: Making sure the gymnastics events at the Fairyland Olympics go smoothly.
Magic Object: A sparkly, blue hoop.
Etymology Gemma is named after a friend of the book's author, Sue Mongredien. In the Special Thanks section, the book is dedicated to "Gemma Poole".
