The Youngest Fairy Godmother Ever

a picture book by Stephen Krensky, illustrated by Diana Cain Bluthental

Every kid dreams of what they want to be when they grow up. Some imagine themselves as astronauts, others as ballerinas, and there are those who cannot seem to choose.
But not Mavis. Her plans were set.
When she grew up she wanted to be a fairy godmother.
"Because," she said, "I want to make wishes come true."
But how would Mavis make her wish come true? There's a lot of work to being a fairy godmother. To practice, Mavis begins by "popping up out of nowhere," and even makes her very own magic wand. But when Mavis tries to cast her spells, she finds her results to be... not so magical. "This is very tricky," she soon realizes. Can she make someone's wish come true?

The Youngest Fairy Godmother Ever is an enchanting story that glitters with humor and personality. It's for anyone who's ever wished a wish - or dreamed of making one come true.
