Pearlie was having a busy day looking after the park when a ladybird appeared with a message in its little bag.
The message scroll, decorated with scarlet tassels and written on silvery paper, said: 'Her Majesty Queen Emerald - most magical monarch of Fairyland -will visit Jubilee Park today at dusk for a very important announcement.'
How exciting! And, the ladybird said that Queen Emerald wanted to have supper with Pearlie in her famous pink shell. Even more magical!
When Opal heard about the visit she guessed that the queen planned to crown Pearlie FAIRY of the YEAR.
But, of course, the naughty rats and jealous Sapphire heard about the visit and plotted to make as much trouble as possible. And they certainly did!
