She’s come from the past to reclaim the future of her colony.
An African Fairy tale of love, hope and forgiveness: against her guardian’s advice a young purple fairy, MAYENNIE, goes on a quest that will change her life and the fortunes of both humans and fairies forever.
This story is a fairy tale fantasy called Mayennie about a fairy girl preserved from the past, who must rise amid the human’s wrath toward her kind to regain her colony’s existence.
In a village settlement in 1400s Africa, the human’s chief EKBAR BATTON banishes the fairy colony. Their return relies on the fairy girl, MAYENNIE. Unfortunately, the humans oppress her and force her into isolation, and no hope of realising her preordained task. However, she fulfils her mission to liberate and reinstate her colony through the help of her trusted guardians, the five defective animals who raised her, her sibling, HAIRBALL, and a special human girl, called PINK.
