Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K A little girl who is Fuchsia in both name and hue blows out her birthday candle, opens her present, and dons the dazzling pink hat inside. She wears it constantly, and one day decides to adorn it with a flower from a fuchsia tree. A voice instructs the child to close her eyes and say, THE FUCHSIA IS NOW, and when she does so, a fairy emerges, ready to grant wishes. Fuchsia asks for some new friends, and magic dust and funny incantations produce a pig, a frog, and a mouse. They play together all afternoon, and, as bedtime approaches, the fairy sends the animals home with a ZIP-ZIP-ZAP! promising they will return the next day. The invocation of imaginary playmates is hardly a new subject; nevertheless, the familiar story is delivered with appropriate simplicity and imbued with bold wake-me-up colors and zany cartoon illustrations.

J.OTTO does it again. His first solo book? I think so.

Yeah well this will knock you out, young and old. Buy TWO!!! That's right...you'll need a stunt double. One to keep nice, and one for all the people who will want to grab it, read it, and drooool over it when they come over to play Parcheesi.

The Fuchsia is Now is a simple story about a fuchsia-colored girl who has a birthday, receives a special present, and meets a fuchsia-colored fairy who grants Fuchsia's wish.

My five-year-old daughter, whose favorite color is pink, thinks that this story is great. The illustrations, which make the characters look a bit like space aliens, make it easy for kids to tell the story by themselves without having to know how to read.

Although the story line is a bit too simplistic for my liking, little girls who like fairies and the color pink will probably enjoy this book just as my daughter did.

Maybe I just don't get it, but this was the most cracked out book ever. There was little-to-no plot. I felt like it encouraged kids to ask a magic fairy to grant them friends (instead of working on relationships) and then to wish them away when friends were no longer convenient. I also don't know why she was wearing a nipple on her head the entire time. Horrible.
