The Very Fairy Princess: Graduation Girl!

“Love, love, love The Very Fairy Princess Graduation Girl!  I read it to my daughter (who’s still hibernating in Hotel Uterus) and she seemed to love it too, squiggling and punching through the whole story.  A great read for younger readers who are moving or transitioning to a new school and for older readers experiencing change of their own.  Definitely a great family read!” – Danielle Tumminio
