Though one must attend Advanced Fairy School to become a “Permanent Fairy,” young Alice has earned her stripes as a “Temporary Fairy.”  Wielding a wand and using her imagination, she changes her father into a horse, his cookies into her own, and makes leaves fall from trees. She disappears with the assistance of her wand and a light switch, and when that’s too scary, she uses her blanket instead. She’d really like to make her dog float to the ceiling, change her bath water into Jell-O, and make her clothes line up and dance into the closet, but she needs further training. Alice is pretty sure she may never make it to Advanced Fairy School but that doesn’t stop her from trying. Alice – all pink dress, blonde curls, and sparkly, tied-on wings is a sunny (and ever-so-slightly spunky) delight. Kids of all ages will instantly connect to Alice’s matter-of-fact tone as she describes the perks and pitfalls of fairyhood.  (Prepared by: Janet Kittrell, SCASL Picture Book Awards)
