The Worst Fairy Godmother Ever!
By Sarah Aronson
Hi! Have you ever had a fairy godmother? Well, Isabelle is a fairy godmother. And it isn’t easy! Lots of training to do. But the truth is, she’s never actually read the rule book.
It is her first day as a trainee. She’s going to see if she passes level one by taking a test. On her first day, she walks up to the doors. There are 2. One says Enter those who are ready to become a fairy godmother! The other one says Enter those who are not! She enters the one that says Enter those who are ready to become a fairy godmother! I would have entered into the one that said Enter those who are not! Because it’s all a test, right? And you would be very humble if you went in to that door. Unfortunately, Isabelle went into the other one. But, she was right. All the other girls were in there.
When the class started, she talked about a few things. Then, she introduced The Bests. They talked about the practice princesses they had made happy during trainee level one. After that, Grandmomma (only the best fairy godmother ever and head of the fairy godmothers!) gave them each a long proclamation to read. But, Isabelle skipped most of the words and was already jumping in her seat by the time she had read the second sentence. So, she just skipped to the end and signed her name. She got her wand and went to the front of the class. She placed her wand in sparkles. She practiced on a few things and messed up. Then, when she practiced her signature move, everything was a disaster.
So, she was the worst in her class, but somehow she passed and got the only non-princess in the choices. She decided she wanted to go and visit her. When she did, she saw how very hard she was to make happy.
Will Isabelle make it to level two and make her practice princess happy or will she go to the place where all the fairy godmothers go if they fail? As I always say, read the book to find out!
I recommend this book to readers who love a good story. This was a really good book! It went from the beginning where it’s just about a nervous fairy godmother trying to pass a simple test, to where her life depends on making a practice princess happy. It was thrilling and adventurous and I couldn’t put it down!
PS. This book is the first in a series called "The Wish List."
A few helpful things I like to say about the books I read:
“Run and Get Mom” (how I describe the scariness factor): There were just a few scary parts.
“Yucky-Lovey Stuff” (how I describe the romance factor): Zero. None. Nada.
I give this book 4 ½ wands.
It was a great book! I loved it. There’s not really a negative about this book, it was just a younger reading level than I’m used to. So parents could read this book aloud to their kids and I’m sure that they would love it very much. And maybe the kids could even read it.
