Alice has a nose for trouble, but luckily she's a fairy-a Temporary Fairy. She has a magic wand, fairy wings, and a blanket, all of which she uses to disappear, to fly, and to turn her father into a horse! There are still a few things Alice needs to learn to become a Permanent Fairy, like how to float her dog on the ceiling and make her clothes put themselves away, but she's working on it-sort of. This endearing, funny story about a girl and her vivid imagination, is sure to delight every fairy in training!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kids and parents enjoy it alike This was our first DAvid Shannon book, my husband purchased it for our daughter for Christmas. We now have 3 kids all under 5 and the 2 older ones love it...one is a boy and he will sit still for it! I enjoy it as well, the illustrations are fantastic, the story is too cute. There are even a few jokes that my kids don't quite catch on, but I still giggle. Excellent!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Huge Problem It was a cute book, but I have a HUGE issue that Alice the fairy warns children that 'the duchess' could poison the broccoli - how could any children's book even elude to a mother poisoning anything! And to make children question broccoli? Not a good message!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Stroke of Genius David Shannon does it again. With dazzling illustrations that nearly leap off the page, Shannon pens the story of every fairy princess. A gem in Children's Literature, and a staple on every little girl's bookshelf.
