From the Author
The majority of Americans are now either stepparents, stepchildren, or touched directly by a stepfamily scenario, yet the myth of the evil stepmother prevails. There have been plenty of books written that attempt to "normalize" stepparents, but too often they come across as didactic or preachy. Many books implicitly draw a line between "normal" families and stepfamilies, and unfortunately, that's something which young readers pick up on.
It's time that the paradigms changed. It's time that stepparents entered children's literature not as teachers of what stepfamilies are like, but as just another character, or perhaps even a hero. My Fairy Stepmother turns the Cinderella myth on it's head, with a caring stepmother who helps her step-daughter find strength and confidence that she never knew she had.
Living in two households isn't always easy for step children, and the book acknowledges this gently. Sometimes a caring stepparent is exactly what's needed to help smooth things over - and a little fairy dust never hurt either!
With its beautiful illustrations lovingly hand-crafted by Suzi Tegelaar, My Fairy Stepmother is sure to please children of any family, especially stepdaughters.
