Summary
While her friends and family may not believe in fairies, Geraldine knows, deep down, that she is a VERY fairy princess. From morning to night, Gerry does everything that fairy princesses do: she dresses in her royal attire, practices her flying skills, and she is always on the lookout for problems to solve. But it isn't all twirls and tiaras - as every fairy princess knows, dirty fingernails and scabby knees are just the price you pay for a perfect day!

This new picture book addition to the Julie Andrews Collection features the joyful illustrations of Christine Davenier, and is sure to inspire that sparkly feeling within the hearts of readers young and old.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A girl who believes she is really a princess isn't a new premise in children's literature, so it's refreshing to find a very real little girl as our protagonist, especially given a title that evokes an expectation of a more traditionally froufrou young royal. Geraldine (Gerry) just knows she is a princess and narrates the events of her day, offering commentary about her many doubters: My brother, Stewart, says princesses don't wear sneakers and don't have scabby knees. Gerry's type of princess isn't too precious; in response to her brother, she asserts, Fairy princesses are very practical. A long day passes breakfast, school, playtime, and dinner before the one person who never doubts her comes home: Daddy. Freckled, spiky haired, pink clad, and irrepressible, Geraldine is reminiscent of Eloise. She 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.--Foote, Diane Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Geraldine, this book's redheaded heroine, may look like an ordinary girl, but she harbors no doubts about her magical royal status: "I FEEL it inside-a sparkling feeling of just KNOWING in my heart." With great powers, however, come great responsibilities. A fairy princess must always wear her crown ("You never know who you might bump into... even on the stairs), shore up her mere mortal friends ("YOU sparkle when you play the trombone," she tells one), and always be on the lookout for problems to solve, like an escaped classroom hamster. Andrews and Hamilton's narrative voice, a mixture of self-assured proclamations and parenthetical confidences, is fun, and for every reference to glitter, tutus, and sparkle, there are examples of the heroine's rough-and-tumble side (sliding down a banister or pursuing a frog across a stream). Davenier's (Just Like a Baby) luminous and empathic watercolors act like fairy wings on this story. Even though the pictures are predominantly pink, there's nothing pale about Davenier's characterization; Geraldine radiates noblesse oblige, heedless energy, and a sense of destiny-she's Eloise crossed with Hillary Clinton.
