Publisher Comments:

Caldecott Honor artist and bestselling author David Shannon's warm and funny new picture book introduces Alice, a mischievous little girl with a "No, David" nose for trouble and a magic wand.

Alice has a nose for trouble, but luckily she's a fairy--a Temporary Fairy. She has a magic wand, fairy wings, and a blanket, all of which she uses to disappear, to fly, to transform her dad into a horse, and to turn his cookies into her own! There are still a few things Alice needs to learn to become a Permanent Fairy, like how to float her dog on the ceiling and make her clothes put themselves away, but she's working on it--sort of. Here's an endearing, funny story about a girl and her magical imagination, sure to delight every fairy in training!

Review:

"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 a colorful imagination to brighten her days. Kids will instantly connect to Alice's matter-of-fact tone as she describes the perks and pitfalls of fairyhood. 'I can't fly very high yet, but I can fly really fast!' or 'I changed my dad into a horse.' When she's not disappearing (with a flick of the light switch) or curtsying in the Magic Mirror ('Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who's the fairiest of them all?' she asks), Alice tries to stay on the good side of the wicked Duchess (Mom) and Duke of Morningside Drive and perfect her spell casting. Shannon again slips comfortably into the mindset of a child, opening a window on that special time of life when it's easy to believe in magic. The ink-and-watercolor artwork bears the sketchy, childlike style of No, David, giving the proceedings an appropriately breezy feel. Alice — all pink dress, blonde curls and sparkly wings — is a sunny (and ever-so-slightly spunky) delight. Ages 3-up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information, Inc.)
