Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3—When the world's top fairy godmother loses her magical powers, her tooth-fairy friend attempts to help her find a new gig: sugarplum fairy, snow fairy—but nothing works for the plump pixie. Then her pal hatches a plan to find a job that is totally necessary for the good of family sleep and harmony—tucking children into bed as a "Goodnight, Sleeptight, Don't Let the Bed Bugs Bite Fairy Godmother!" The overlong story, told in the tooth fairy's ditzy and slightly sassy voice, features the usual Palatini puns and wanders lazily along to the conclusion. Ajhar has created distinctive characters, and the full-color spreads are dominated by magenta and blue hues. Older children familiar with fairy godmothers from classic tales may appreciate this fairy's dilemma more than young children do, but it's hard to say if they will care.—Marge Loch-Wouters, La Crosse Public Library, WI

Wow. My very first picture book -- PIGGIE PIE!, is celebrating
it's fifteenth anniversary this year! It tickles me to know that

Margie Palatini's GONE WITH THE WAND receives fun drawings by Brian Ajhar and tells of a fairy godmother put out of business by her success. It's up to Edith the tooth fairy to help Bernice find new magical powers and new meaning in life in this gentle story of friendship and magic.

This is the best book ever! My daughter and I checked this out from the library, and we liked it so much I bought it for her. It is a must-have for every little girl. I bought another copy for my step daughter. This book will be my go-to gift for all little girls. Love it!
