The Crowded Kingdom by Louella Dizon San Juan.
What if you woke up in Central Park as someone so tiny that you discover a fairy kingdom in New York City? The Crowded Kingdom is the story of two sisters, Jada and Jinny, who find themselves shrunk to the size of dandelions and discover a world of fairies, elves, and other small folk in New York City. Along with several elf friends and a rebellious purple fairy, the girls embark on a journey through the underbelly of New York City and across the sea to the ancestral land of elves to find out how to return to their normal size. But instead of answers, the unsuspecting girls find themselves in the middle of a magical war. Will Jada and Jinny ever find a way back to their family, or will they be forever trapped in this wondrous world? "'The Crowded Kingdom' is a deftly written and thoroughly entertaining modern fairytale adventure that will fire the imagination of young readers and hold their full attention from beginning to end.
