The Fairy Godmother Takes a Break
(After Happily Ever After)
by Tony Bradman
ill. by Sarah Warburton
Intermediate chapter book
Mankato, Minn. : Stone Arch Books, 2009
The Fairy Godmother is upset because no one ever thanks her for her services. She never has a moment to herself. Her husband, Mr. F.G., is her personal assistant. He uses a special, magic computer that only does one thing, accept Wish-Mails. One day there are so many Wish-Mails that The Fairy Godmother decides to quit! She and Mr. F.G. are going on a vacation to relax and get away from it all. However, when you are as well-known as the Fairy Godmother, it is rather hard to escape notice. Her vacation doesn't quite go as planned, but that might be a good thing in the long run.
After Happily Ever After is a fun new beginning chapter book series by Tony Bradman. Each book is a stand-alone book giving us the after story of some very famous people in the fairy tale world. Filled with delightful black and white illustrations by Sarah Warburton, this is a new favorite series of mine.
