Overview

Step away from the wand . . .

Elly Knottleweed-Eversprightly comes from a long line of famous fairies. But just because one of her ancestors wrote the historic Fairy Code doesn't mean Elly loves being a fairy. In fact, she hates it. She can't stand the itchy tutus, would rather ride her skateboard than fly the Fairy Flock, and messes up all of her magic spells.

Plus, she's been kicked out of two fairy academies for turning her Synchronized Flying Instructor purple and catching a flyrus (it wasn't her fault!).

Then Elly meets Jess, a human girl who helps Elly fix her malfunctioning wand.

Elly never dreamed being friends with a human could make her life so much better.

But can Jess help keep Elly from being kicked out of Fairy School--forever?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Fairy School Dropout:

 

“Here's a hilarious antidote to those ‘oh so sweet’ fairy stories on the market.” —Bookseller and Publisher, Australia

Australia Bookseller and Publisher

Here's a hilarious antidote to those 'oh so sweet' fairy stories on the market.
School Library Journal
Gr 3–5—Elly Knottleweed-Eversprightly hates being a fairy. She wants to leave the Mossy Blossom Academy for Young Fairies, where she is always in trouble. Because she has been expelled from two previous fairy academies, Mossy Blossom is her last chance. If she fails here, she will not get her "wish fulfillment license." In Badger's fairy world, fairies are human-size and live in houses just like people do. When Elly accidentally meets the human girl next door, they each become the other's answer to a wish. Elly helps Jess create a "magical" science project, and Jess repairs Elly's wand. The purple text and cartoon illustrations done in various shades of lavender are basic and repetitive. The book's ending is abrupt, even for the first in a trilogy. Additional, at best.—Elaine Lesh Morgan, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR

    Elly is a fairy who's been kicked out of two fairy academies and is close to being kicked out of her third. She longs to go to a human school, but only really good fairies get to go to those. When the Head Fairy of her school threatens to expel her if she doesn't shape up in a week, Elly is faced with a choice: be a fairy and wear the itchy uniform, or disguise herself as a human. When she meets a girl named Jess who has a knack for inventions but needs help with finishing her volcano science project in time to get it to school, Elly decides to help her out. Can she figure out a way to help both Jess and herself? A quick, funny read for fairy lovers. The characters are amusing and fun to read about. The plot keeps moving and does a good job of holding the reader's interest. The illustrations are well-done and add a lot to the story and its humor. Readers who like fantasy, fairies, and realistic fiction with a mix of magic will enjoy reading FAIRY SCHOOL DROPOUT.

    Elly, a young fairy who dislikes being a fairy.  She feels out of place because she does not want to be the glitterized, girly fairy that they teach girl fairies to be.  She inadvertently gets caught by a human, which is a big no no in the fairy world.  A mistake that will change her outlook on life. 




     This series starts out pretty similar to most juvenile fairy stories.  The difference in this one is that the main character, Elly, dislikes being a fairy.  Most juvenile fairy stories the fairy loves being a fairy but is too awkward to perform fairy magic.  With the difference in the story, it makes this story memorable and somewhat realistic.




     I am not a fan of the book cover.  It is okay but it does not grab me.  Although I am not the demographic for the book so it really does not matter so much for the readers. I also do not remember much magic in the book.  I always prefer more magic.




     What the reader may get out of this book is not really whimsical magic feeling but more realistic tween girl issues with a little magic.
