The Very Fairy Princess: Graduation Girl!

Julie Andrews and Emma Walton Hamilton, illus. by Christine Davenier. Little, Brown, $18 (32p) ISBN 978-0-316-21960-0
Moving up a grade and leaving behind the teacher she’s had all year doesn’t make fairy princess Gerry feel very sparkly, even when she’s wearing her pink crown and fairy wings—which is pretty much all the time. Her wings droop even lower when she learns that her new teacher is a man: “He’ll never believe that I’m a fairy princess!” Luckily, a chance encounter with the well-accessorized Mr. Bonario at graduation brings her sparkle back. Davenier’s lithe illustrations infuse the story with warmth and quiet emotion; Andrews’s and Hamilton’s heroine continues to charm. Ages 3–6. (Apr.)
