New from the author of the best-selling Emily Windsnap series! A tale of a girl and her reluctant fairy guardian sparkles with magic and charm.
Philippa Fisher would like nothing more than to summon a fairy. Still, she is taken aback when Daisy, the new girl at school, announces that she is Philippa's fairy godmother — or godsister, since they're both the same age. Though the fairy is none too pleased with her mission, she is obliged to see it through and grant her human charge the customary three wishes. Now, if only Philippa would wish for something that makes her life better, not worse! With warmth and whimsy, the creator of Emily Windsnap whisks a traditional theme into a contemporary setting to tell a story of friendship, luck, and how we decide what we really want.
Liz Kessler is the author of three NEW YORK TIMES best-selling books about the half-mermaid, half-human Emily Windsnap. She lives in Cheshire, England.
"Girls may fall upon Liz Kessler's story with joy. . . . A funny, wise book about finding confidence and friendship." — THE TIMES (London) — Times, The (UK)
