    Elena Klovis was supposed to be her kingdom's Cinderella - until an accident of fate left her with a completely inappropriate prince! Determined not to remain with her stepfamily, Elena set out to get a new job - and ended up becoming the Fairy Godmother for the land. But "Breaking with Tradition" was no easy matter. True, she didn't have to sleep in the chimney, but she had to deal with arrogant, stuffed-shirt princes who kept trying to rise above their place in the tale.

    Captain Skurvy says: "An excellent start to a new series"
    "For fairytale lovers who want something "new!""

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Fairy Godmother the most enjoyable?

    Being able to listen to a new fairytale, not the classics we normally are used to. It's refreshing to read a fairytale book that gave deeper meaning to it's explanations, and to have a tale with a heavy story structure to support it. The "tradition" is definitely an entity that many other tales can be built upon.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Elena of course! She was the main character, but her experience was so unique that it made the journey of the story even more enjoyable.


    Have you listened to any of Gabra Zackman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I believe Gabra narrated Memoirs of a Geisha. If so, she did an excellent job on that book and she does on this one as well.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I'm a hopeless romantic and found myself swooning at the moment when the lovers finally reveal their feeling for eachother. It was so passionate and also didn't involve a highly detailed and vulgar sexual description. :)
