My name is Drusinella, and I'm a fairy.
Everyone has hobby. Mine is turning Princes into frogs.
I know what you're thinking. "But you're a fairy! Fairies are supposed to grant wishes, and spread happiness!"
Boo. Happiness is for Princesses.
I was banished from Fairyland for my obscure hobby, so you'll imagine my surprise when I received an invitation to a fairy party from my old acquaintance, Soflee!
My only friend, Alfrigg the bird, flew me back home, which ended in absolute disaster when I found out the Fairy Queen had no intention of letting me come back home unless I give up my frog hobby (like THAT will happen!).
To make matters worse, a stupid princess saved my life, so now I have to grant her deepest wish, which is, of course, true love (ugh, that is so gross).
This has to be the lamest adventure EVER.
Ever so Sarcastically and Sincerely,

Reviewed by JB McPherson for Readers' Favorite The Grumpy Fairy: A Grumpy Fairy Tale Book 1 by Elizabeth Dunlap is a witty read for those who love fairy tales and sarcasm. There are funny magical bits, like frog princes begging to be unenchanted, and clever fairy world bits, like learning that fairies are naturally tiny but can make themselves regular size. I especially liked the friendship between the fairy and her bird friend. This unlikely friendship gives the first clue that there is more to the story. Don’t let Drusinella’s prickly exterior fool you—inside, there’s a real, complex person. Drusinella’s quirky view of life drew me into the story, and I enjoyed the details that turned the fairy tale genre upside down. Dunlap creates an interesting premise (a grumpy fairy exiled from Fairy Land) and a chain of events that kept me reading to the end. I won’t spoil the ending for you, but it’s just as surprising as the grumpy fairy. My favorite part of the book is Drusinella’s attitude. She works hard to keep up her grumpiness until we begin to wonder why. We see Drusinella processing the first inklings of inner change, and she reacts just as we would expect: grumpily! But through it all, we can’t help cheering for Drusinella and hoping that she will resolve some issues while staying herself. For those who enjoy a light read with interesting characters, The Grumpy Fairy by Elizabeth Dunlap is fun! And for those who have grumpy days, visit Drusinella’s world for an hour or two. Laughter is the best medicine. This is a wonderful story!

Absolutely enjoyable. I laughed a bit and I understood why. Although I could never do anything mean to people or animals, I do get why this grumpy fairy would turn people into frogs or whatever. I really enjoyed the grumpiness and the sarcasm and the whole entire story. Great job. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This little fairy tale was a treat to read! A sarcastic fairy, a beautiful princess, and plenty of princes turned into frogs, what could go wrong? I laughed, I cried, it moved me, readers!
