Tangerina is an original character from The Land of Stories series. She first appears in The Wishing Spell, ch 12.

She lives in The Fairy Kingdom and is part of the Fairy Council.

Appearance and Personality

She is elegant, dressed in orange and her hairstyle is shaped into a beehive with bees that fly around her head.[1]


1. The Wishing Spell

The Fairy Council hosts a trial for the fairy Trix and the Fairy Council is about to sentence her, when Conner speaks up on her behalf. He manages to change the fairies' minds and Trix is pardoned.

2. The Enchantress Returns

The Fairy Council is shown as at a complete loss in the face of Ezmia's power. They refuse to give in when Ezmia comes to taunt them, but are unable to stand up to Ezmia's powers and are captured. They are saved by Alex and Conner. At the end of the book, the Fairy Council agree with the Fairy Godmother to close the gateway between the two worlds.

3. A Grimm Warning

Tangerina is present at Alex' inauguration to the Fairy Council. She also fights alongside the other fairies in the battle against the Grande Armée, using her bees as weapons against the soldiers.

 4. Beyond the Kingdoms

The Council accuses Alex of neglecting her Fairy Godmother duties and spending too much time trying to find the Masked Man. They give her an ultimatum, which she refuses, and they "ungodmother" her. When the Masked Man and his army arrives in the Land of Stories, the Fairy Palace is destroyed and the members of the Fairy Council are turned to stone.[2]


"We can't just pardon Trix. We're the Fairy Council; it wouldn't send a good message to the rest of the Kingdoms."[3]
