Description


Caldecott Honor artist and bestselling author David Shannon's funny picture book introduces Alice, a mischievous little girl with a nose for trouble and a magic wand.

FORMAT: Paperback book and CD


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!

Praise For…


Praise for the book:

"With his signature cartoon-style art and childlike lettering, Shannon has created a winsome, exubertant heroine whos ewide wyws and toothy smile bring David to mind, though Alice's blonde ringlets are all her own. Variety in page and text layout and the use of brilliant color make the pictures dance and occasionally pop right off the pages. An enjoyable romp."

What a truly magnificent work of graphic novel artistry. The Queen of the Sea uses the graphic novel medium superbly, reminding me just how powerful this mode of story telling is. The acutely rich historical details in this book truly make it a feast to behold. I was taken in from the very start!! - reviewed by Isabel
