Gone with the Wand by Margie Palatini illustrations by Brian Ajhar
Oh no! The fairy godmother is having a bad wand day! Nothing is going right.
In this story told by the tooth fairy, they work diligently to find the fairy godmother a new fairy occupation.
What I Thought:
I so love Margie Palatini! I read Bad Boys in college, but recently read her other books during some school-age storytimes and was simply enamored. I was so excited when this book arrived, I'd hear lots of good things about it...and was not disappointed!
I think this book has such a great premise, a story told by the tooth fairy about finding a new fairy job for the waning fairy godmother. She tries all sorts of new jobs: snow fairy, fairy dusting, sugarplum fairy...nothing works. Will she ever find a job?
The illustrations are fantastic, and enhance the story nicely. The story is fun and is sure to please kids everywhere.
