Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Spells backfire to create merry mayhem in Coville's (My Teacher Is an Alien) fluffy tale. Maybelle Clodnowski, a bumbling fairy godmother, has been given one last chance to do her job correctly before her heavenly supervisor strips her of her wings and wand. She is put in charge of reforming young Susan Pfenstermacher, whose quest for perfection has alienated kids and adults alike. Adding to the chaos are Zozmagog, a cherub who, thanks to Maybelle's sloppy godmothering, has been raised as an imp; and Edna Prim, Maybelle's mentor, who has been Fairy Godmother of the Year for 147 years running. The broadly humorous scenarios, despite their fantastic premise, may inspire a worthwhile musing or two on the subject of perfection. Illustrations supply a Bavarian woodslike fairy tale setting. Ages 8-12. (Dec.)

    This book is about a fairy godmother that isn’t very good

    This book is about a fairy godmother that isn’t very good at what she does. Her boss said that she gets one more chance and if she messes up she becomes mortal again. To make sure things don’t get too out of hand, her boss gave her a supervisor. They give her a little girl who lived in the forest to help. This little girl was a little confusing to the godmother. The little girl was perfect. The problem was she would do the right for the wrong reason. She would do nice things so people would think she was perfect. So to fix her the fairy godmother was going to make a love apple which would make the girl love every one. It turns out that the reason the godmother keep messing up was because there was a little goblin type thing that would sabotage her work. When he found out what she was going to do he made a mean apple that would make her hate everyone. If you touched her you would be mean too. So the fairy godmother put the love apple in the basket but the goblin switched it with his apple. The little girl ate it. That’s when things went downhill. All the kids in town touched her and they all became mean. Now to find out what happens you’re going have to read the book. I recommend reading this book if you’re in to fairy tales. It’s a funny story that you will want to keep reading. It’s also a good book to read to little kids

    From what other people have written, I think that it is a great book. I met the author, Bruce Coville, and told him that I liked Homeward Bound. This sounds like an awesome book from this famous author (he goes world-wide).

    FAIRY good!

    I read this book when I was in the 5th grade, that was six years ago. I had remembered how much I loved it, so it urged me to find the book and read it again for fun. I recommend it to any child (ages 9-12). It brings a whole new twist on the average fairy godmother, and allows the reader to travel to a whole new sparkling world full of magic and laughs.
