My Thoughts: Birdie is a young girl who is visiting her mother's mom for the first time. There she finds out from her Gram that she comes from a long line of Fairy Godmothers, including her mother, who turned her back on the family history. Birdie learns she must go on a quest to bring the family back together.
The book enters the world of magic and dreamland so fast that you don't have much time to deny it. I like the idea of the series, which has a website at http://fairygodmotheracademy.com and cards within the books for each in training. These books are a step up from chapter books. So if your looking for the next step from Rainbow Magic Fairies or Disney Fairies books these would be a fine start.
About the Author: This is the first book for Jan Bozarth. The Second book in the series is due out 2009.
