Flunked: Fairy Tale Reform School
Fairy Tale Reform School is spellbinding and wickedly clever. Gilly is smart, spunky, and a hilarious narrator, and I cannot wait to read about her next adventure!" - Leslie Margolis, author of the Annabelle Unleashed novels and the Maggie Brooklyn Mysteries.

Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4?A new series from Giff for the easy chapter-book crowd. In the first title, Rosaleen O'Meara wants to be a ballerina like her late grandmother. She has obstacles to overcome, including the fact that she forgets to sign up for lessons on registration day. Also, her best friend isn't speaking to her, and she doesn't know why. Rosie eventually gets into class, but her petty meanness makes her future look less than rosy. In Nutcracker Dreams, she desperately wants the part of Clara, but then the story takes off in other directions. Giff integrates ballet terms into the text, but there are not enough details about dance lessons to excite students of the ballet, or to encourage others to want to learn. In reading the first title in the series, some children may feel that they've missed a previous introduction to the characters, and they're unlikely to care about them. One or two black-and-white line drawings appear in each chapter. Libraries with an audience for Giff's "Polk Street School" series, or the "Hola Amigos" series may wish to add this one. Otherwise, pass on it.?Sharon R. Pearce, San Antonio Public Library, TX
