What does a fairy godmother do when the magic is gone? Well, Bernice Sparklestein is losing her touch -- the wand just doesn't seem to work. But it's not the wand, it's Bernice. She's not happy as a fairy godmother anymore -- it's job dissatisfaction. Luckily, Tooth Fairy Second Class Edith B. Cuspid is willing to do what needs to be done to get Bernice back on track -- including sharing some ideas for new jobs. From official release/information:
Product Description: "If yours truly, Edith Molarnari, tooth fairy second class, hadn't seen it with my own two peepers, I wouldn't have believed it myself --- Bernice Sparklestein, once the best fairy godmother in the biz, having a bad wand day. A very bad wand day."
Margie Palatini's heartwarmingly hilarious story about helping friends and finding your place in life along the way, and Brian Ajhar's beautifully fun illustrations will have both children and adults giggling out loud.
