Fairy princess Geraldine is back, pink wings and all, for her third outing, and when she’s asked to be a flower girl in her aunt’s wedding, she’s eager to share her expertise: “I can put my royal stamp on everything and make sure there’s plenty of sparkle.” The ceremony is more of a low-key affair than Geraldine expects, and the threat of rain provides the story’s only real moment of tension. But Geraldine’s confidence and boisterous enthusiasm remain a winning combination (“Any fairy princess knows that exploding birds can ruin a wedding,” she says, explaining the family’s choice to use birdseed instead of rice), and Davenier’s wonderfully airy illustrations underscore Geraldine’s belief in her own magic. Ages 3–6. (Apr.)
