All the books in the Very Fairy Princess series are wonderful! Gerrie is a delightful, spunky little girl who believes that you can be anything you want to be, all you have to do is "let your sparkle out". Wonderful message for the little girls in your life!!
This story of an exuberant young "princess" who wishes to share her sparkle (and overly decorative taste and energy) at her Aunt's wedding is charming. She gradually learns, through patient guidance that "the RIGHT kind of sparkle is all it takes to make a PERFECT day!" Adorable story that many young girls will love.
After reading this to my 5yo, I honestly wanted my money back...
