Most little girls have parents to take care of them, but not Annabel Tippens.She has Gloria, a tiny white dog who talks and wears a gold collar. Annabel never thought it was strange that she had Gloria instead of real parents. Until one day a wicked, wicked cat named Belinda comes to tell her the truth — she's not just a little girl, she's a half-fairy!

And she can do lots of things that other kids can't do, such as kiss her own elbow and fly around the house. But being a fairy isn't all fun and games, and soon Annabel must make a choice. If she chooses to be a fairy, she'll have to say good-bye to Gloria forever. How can she decide between her newly found magic and her dearest friend?Most little girls have parents to look after them, but not Annabel Tippens.

Synopsis:

Annabel Tippens seems like an ordinary little girl, with short blond hair and very good manners. But Annabel is actually quite unusual. Instead of parents, she has Gloria, a tiny white dog who talks and wears a gold collar. Annabel never wonders why her life is different, until one day a cat named Belinda tells her the truth -- she′s not just a little girl, she′s half fairy! But now that she knows the truth, will her whole life have to change?

I was the last of 6 kids - loved and cared for but never read to. When I was about 7 my cousin read "No Flying in the House" to me. I have no recollection of anyone reading to me before that unforgetable experience. Today I have bought my two little girls little jewel encrusted animal ornaments just like the cat with the emerald eyes and gloria and that swan, so precious. My cousin also has two daughters now so, if I give them copies of this book, perhaps, this could be something precious that links us. It might be possible to pass that wonderful experience down. I can't wait to see my kids trying to kiss their elbows! I wonder if they will make the connection between the book and little jewelled animals I bought today.
I've attempted to find this book in the past so thank you google and thank you Powell's Books.

Annabel Tippens life as a little girl without parents is a delightful story. The little dog, Gloria, that is her guardian is a wonderful touch. Mrs. Vancourt appears to be everyone's image of an old spinster who is involved in community activities and has no time for the little girl who has taken up residence in her nursery. The ending is a delightful one, however,the children in my class would like a sequel to be written dealing with Annabel as she enjoys her parents, one a fairy and the other a mortal.
