{Synopsis} – Q: What do you need to become a great fairy godmother?

a) kindness
b) determination
c) gusto
d) all of the above

Fairy-godmother-in-training Isabelle doesn’t know what gusto is, but she’s pretty sure she has what it takes to pass fairy godmother training with flying colors.

But then Isabelle is assigned a practice princess who is not a princess at all. Nora is just a normal girl — a normal girl who doesn’t believe in fairy godmothers, or wishes come true, or happily ever afters.

Isabelle has to change Nora’s mind about magic and grant a wish for her. If she can’t, Isabelle will flunk training and never become a great fairy godmother!

{My thoughts} – Every child that has ever been read the story of Cinderella wishes they too, could have a fairy godmother. In this book, Isabelle is one of the worst fairy godmothers ever. She seems to think that she is, however, she is just trying to find her way. She doesn’t do it by conventional methods though. Everyone around her is book smart and learns be reading all the rules and stuff. She doesn’t learn that ways o she doesn’t bother to learn the training manual. Instead she’d rather learn through her own experiences.

Isabelle has a lot to live up to, her grandmomma is the head of the training program, her older sister is an exceptional fairy godmother. She’s hoping to be better then her mother, whom didn’t fair well as a fairy godmother.

When Isabelle meets Nora, she has problems figuring out how she is meant to help her. Howe is she suppose to grant a wish for her. Nora isn’t like other practice princesses. Nora is more interested in nature and not so much in the princes.

This book has the potential to become a loved book for children that enjoy a good story about fairy godmothers, sparkles and princesses.
