Alice the Fairyby David Shannon
Synopses & Reviews
The star of the New York Times bestselling Here Comes the Easter Cat is back—and this time he's met his match!When Cat loses a tooth, the Tooth Fairy delivers a wholly unwanted sidekick: a mouse. Together, Cat and Mouse are tasked with running a few Tooth Fairy-related errands—a challenge, since Mouse is just as competitive and mischievous and hilariously self-involved as Cat. The stakes rise and so does the deadpan humor, culminating in a satisfying surprise that will leave readers eager for yet another delightfully devious Cat adventure.
An homage to classic comic strips from the author of The Quiet Book and The Loud Book, this New York Times bestselling series is perfect for fans of Pete the Cat, Bad Kitty, and Mo Willems's Pigeon books.
"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.)
Get ready with Daisy the dawdler as she tries (really!) to get it together in this very real, very funny spin on dilly dallying.
Daisy Marsha Martin is always late. For good reasons, of course. Shes busy saving the world, or teaching her stuffed animals to dance, or finding the perfect shirt to wear. But if Daisy is late one more time, then its no more mermaid swim class for her!
This is the perfect story for fans of everyday silliness and for every kid who has been told to stop dawdling.
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!
