The Very Fairy Princess Takes the Stage

Julie Andrews and Emma Walton Hamilton, illus. by Christine Davenier. Little, Brown, $16.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-316-04052-5
There's no doubt in Geraldine's mind that she's a fairy princess: "I FEEL it inside—a sparkly feeling of just KNOWING in my heart." But in her second outing, she's cast as a jester in her ballet class's spring performance of The Crystal Princess; Geraldine's teacher gives the starring role to Tiffany, who gets to wear a "shimmery and sparkly" dress. Geraldine unhappily bumbles through the show, but when Tiffany has a mishap on stage, Geraldine gets her sparkle back by helping Tiffany save face. Davenier's expressive illustrations match Geraldine's energy and mood on every spread, fluidly conveying the heroine's loveable imperfections. Ages 3–6. (May)
