Children's Book Review: The Very Fairy Princess
The Very Fairy Princess
Written by: Julie Andrews & Emma Walton Hamilton
Illustrated by: Christine Davenier
Published by: Little, Brown, and Company, 2010
While her friends and family may not believe in fairies, Geraldine knows, deep down, that she is a VERY fairy princess. From morning to night, Gerry does everything that fairy princesses do: she dresses in her royal attire, practices her flying skills, and she is always on the lookout for problems to solve. But it isn't all twirls and tiaras - as every fairy princess knows, dirty fingernails and scabby knees are just the price you pay for a perfect day!
This new picture book addition to the Julie Andrews Collection features the joyful illustrations of Christine Davenier, and is sure to inspire that sparkly feeling within the hearts of readers young and old.
* Entertainer Julie Andrews is the co-author of this book. I didn't realize until reading the book jacket that she's written other children's books and even a memoir. Of course it was the title of this book that caught my eye since my daughter loves everything princess. In this book Geraldine knows she's a fairy princess and goes on to explain how and why she is. Geraldine is a likable character and with all of the pink in this story my daughter enjoyed it.
