The Winter Wonderland Festival is just around the corner, and Gerry knows this is her moment to SHINE. She's the most enthusiastic singer around, so she's certain her music teacher will choose her to perform the solo. She takes every opportunity to show him her VERY best voice-during rehearsal, during lunchtime, and even during recess. When a professional singer is given the solo instead, Gerry is crushed...but as the snow begins to fall, she finds a way to get her SPARKLE back!
The mother-daughter team of Julie Andrews and Emma Walton Hamilton adds a sparkly seasonal story to their #1 New York Times bestselling series.
Praise for The Very Fairy Princess series:
"Three cheers for this princess whose magic comes from her confidence and determination rather than gauzy wings or shiny baubles." - Kirkus
"[Geraldine] lets kids know it's not necessary to be prim and proper to be a 'real' princess; princesses who just want to have fun will find plenty of that here." - Booklist
"The mother-daughter team successfully demonstrates an understanding of that magical stage of childhood in which determination, desire and dreams can transform reality." - Kirkus
"Geraldine radiates noblesse oblige, heedless energy, and a sense of destiny-she's Eloise crossed with Hillary Clinton." - PW
