Publisher's Summary

Hunky Dory's mother always told her, "You'll be the wickedest witch wherever the four winds blow." And why not? She's at the top of her class in charm school. She can make flowers wilt like wet spaghetti. And she can turn any prince into a frog...but she always changes him back. That's when she knows she has a problem.

Hunky Dory's interest in wishcraft over witchcraft gets her kicked out of charm school. Now she's determined to follow her heart and become a fairy godmother. But how to go about doing it? She gives a woodsman a new mustache, and grants Wolf his strange wish for a grandmother costume. Finally, motivated by jealousy over her friend Rumpelstiltskin's crush on the girl in the roomful of straw, she meets the ticket to realizing her career dreams: Cinderella.

This fresh, funny twist on fairy tales is just right for girls who have not quite outgrown the magic of classic stories, and who are open to unconventional happily-ever-afters!

Good fun

I bought this for my 11 year old daughter, and she loved it. It was good fun for her, she laughed at it as well. She would recommend this book to other 9 - 11 year old girls .

This book is a wish granted all by itself

If you liked ELLA ENCHANTED, you'll love this! The story is funny and engaging, the narration perfectly matched: neither my 7-year-old nor myself ever wanted the story to end. The story is told by Hunky Dory, a young witch . . . or is she?

Slow and boring

Listened to this with my 11 yr old daughter. We were both waiting for it to get better and it never did. When it finally ended we felt like we had wasted a lot of time.

Ecstatic

My daughter says: "It is awesome! I usually only like things about witches,wizards, sorcerors, warlocks and dragons. But this is awesome. Fairies are really cool."

Cute and Fun

This is a cute little story. It is well written. We listened to it in the car on the way to Florida. Both my daughter and I found the story really held our attention.
