"If yours truly, Edith Molarnari, tooth fairy second class, hadn't seen it with my own two peepers, I wouldn't have believed it myself --- Bernice Sparklestein, once the best fairy godmother in the biz, having a bad wand day. A very bad wand day."

Margie Palatini's heartwarmingly hilarious story about helping friends and finding your place in life along the way, and Brian Ajhar's beautifully fun illustrations will have both children and adults giggling out loud.

"Palatini's books appeal to all ages. Her zany plots with funny characters delivering fast-flowing dialogue will engage younger children, while her extensive wordplay will entertain older kids and adults.

Palitini is the queen of puns and alliteration. Read her books aloud and you'll have trouble getting through without laughing yourself. She certainly deserves to be listed alongside Dr. Seuss, Shel Silverstein, Beverly Cleary, Jon Scieska, and other favorite funny authors and illustrators." --Rob Reid, BOOK LINKS, July 2007
