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!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Shannon again slips comfortably into the mindset of a child, opening a window on that special time of life when it’s easy to believe in magic…Alice—all pink dress, blonde curls and sparkly wings—is a sunny (and ever-so-slightly spunky) delight.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Alice is a magical delight with whom you’ll definitely want to get acquainted.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “It is [Alice’s] innocence that makes the story so believable and charming. Alice is pretending to be a fairy and the reader wants nothing more than to join Alice as she waves her magic wand all around her world.”

    Children’s Literature

  • “Kids will find most of the humor right at their level, in terms of both wit and imagination.”


Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jessica Bennett | 2/15/2014

    " The little girl in this book uses her imagination and pretends to be a fairy. It is a cute book that I would read out loud just for fun because it shows children that it is great fun to use their imagination. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Breana Vining | 2/14/2014

    " Made just for little girls, it would not hurt to create "a girl's corner" for the few minutes that it takes to read this story and have them read the book along with you. "

    " I love the pictures for problem solving with my work kids (pediatric SLP). It's a bit too wordy for use with younger kids without major adaptation, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Casey Trump | 2/1/2014

    " This book is about a little girl who likes to pretend she's a fairy. She turns everything into a part of her fairy world, and sometimes gets into a little trouble. This story reminds kids that pretending is okay, but hold on a little closer to reality. You white dress that you colored red, will not turn white again at the wave of a wand. The "Dutchess" (the mother) will not be happy. "
