And now is the time. We have Hope the Happiness Fairy (woted Most Obvious), Cassidy the Costume Fairy (voted Most Likely to Be Entertaining), Anya the Cuddly Creatures Fairy (voted Most Likely to Wedge in as Many Hooks as Possible), Elisa the Royal Adventure Fairy (my life is kind of a Royal Adventure), Lizzie the Sweet Treats Fairy (voted Most Likely to Turn Out to Be a Stripper), Maddie the Fun and Games Fairy (voted Most Likely to Poke You in the Eye with a Stick), and Eva the Enchanted Ball Fairy (voted Most Likely to Be Shunned by the Other Princess Fairies).
You know I am buying copies of all of these for the Children’s Room. With resentment in my heart, but still. The children will be glad I did.
Incidentally, Scooby-Doo comes back into vogue every seven years or so like a plague of locusts, and guess what? I think it’s been seven years. Those of you who are children’s librarians, consider yourself warned.
