Gerry knows that she’s a VERY fairy princess. She wears a crown, eats fairy pancakes for breakfast, wears pink, attends to her royal duties which include . . .

“rescuing frogs (you never know when one might be a PRINCE!),

building little houses for my fellow fairies,

and exercising my unicorn.”

and especially, she must let her SPARKLE out!

I love Gerry’s very real day and how it works with her life as a fairy princess.

“Flying is NOT allowed in class.

So at school, I hang my wings up in my cubby.”


“Mom calls me in for a bath,

She says fairy princesses don’t have dirty fingernails.

I say it’s the price you pay for having so many responsibilities.”

This book is perfect for any fairy princesses or princesses-in-training and yes, it’s written by THE Julie Andrews and her talented writer daughter, Emma Walton Hamilton.

Book Play: Get out your fairy wings and tiara and become a fairy princess!  Host your own fairy princess tea party, invite your dolls or other fairy princess friends. Build an enticing fairy house out of natural materials – grass, twigs, leaves and so forth. Watch to see if any fairies stop by and try out the house.
