Eleven-year-old Tom is shocked to learn that he is a demisprite, half fairy and half mortal, and that he, aided by three fairy godmothers, must save his father, who is hiding in the fairy Realm, while safeguarding his mortal mother.
An opinionated, love-starved princess. Her status-conscious parents. Two muscular, but rude, hunks. Their kind, thoughtful brother. Three not-so-perfect peaches. An impossible challenge. And a whole lot of rabbits! Told from the point of view of a very untraditional fairy, this hilarious version of “The Three Peaches” shines a new light on the traditional tale and features a unique narrative voice and madcap illustrations. As in all good fairy tales, the vain, rude characters get their comeuppance, the fairy works her magic, and the princess gets her prince. So he’s a little on the skinny side–he has a big heart. (The heart is a muscle too, you know.) Everything else is fair game in this side-splitting take on the classic formula.
This is Two-Eyes. She has two wicked sisters. They make fun of her for having only two eyes and wonder why she can’t look normal like they do.
But Two-Eyes will show them. She’s got a fairy godmother, a magic goat, and a handsome knight to help her outsmart her terrible sisters and escape far, far away.
Embarrassed by her free-spirited parents and lonely when her best friend moves away, a self-conscious eleven-year-old girl named Philippa summons a wish-granting fairy godmother, with unexpected results.
