Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—By putting on a fairy costume and using her imagination, Alice achieves temporary fairy status in this humorous tale (Blue Sky Press, 2004) by David Shannon. She turns her dad into a horse to ride and changes his cookies into her own to eat, and she pours fairy dust (sugar) onto oatmeal to turn it into cake. There are also many fairy-like things that she can't do, such as turning her bathwater into strawberry Jell-O or magically putting away her clothes. Despite these setbacks, Alice seems perfectly content to stay a temporary fairy forever. Shannon's cartoon-style art humorously illustrates Alice's active imagination. Kate Simses convincingly portrays all of Alice's childish enthusiasm and charm. Background music and sound effects enhance the telling. Track one includes fairy wand-like chimes as page-turn signals. A fun listen.—April Mazza, Wayland Public Library, MA
