The Very Fairy Princess Sparkles in the Snow

Davenier. Little, Brown, $18 (32p) ISBN 978-0-316-21963-1

In the fifth picture book starring the ever-sparkly Geraldine, this self-proclaimed fairy princess again faces a minor disappointment that she turns around with ingenuity and positivity. This time, it’s the Winter Wonderland Festival that is causing Geraldine a bit of anxiety. She’s certain her music teacher will choose her to sing a solo (“He always says I am the most ENTHUSIASTIC singer in our school”), but when a professional guest soloist is brought in, will Geraldine still get a chance to shine at the festival? Even though the story arc may be rather familiar to fans at this point, Geraldine continues to radiate energy and confidence. Ages 3–6. (Oct.)
