Meet Rita. She’s a little girl with very big ideas. When she doesn’t feel like getting dressed in the morning, she dreams up a Fairy Godmother to help her out. Rita’s Fairy Godmother would only have to twirl her wand -swoosh! – and things would happen. But who knows what things…

Review by Stacey

Rita is a young girl with a big imagination. She needs to get dressed but doesn’t want to so she has an idea. Perhaps having a Fairy Godmother would be a good choice as she could wave her wand and Rita would be dressed. However, the more she thinks about it, the more unsure she is that having a Fairy Godmother is a good idea.

The book is part of the ‘Rita Wants’ series, in which young Rita comes up with ideas to make her life easier or more exciting, but not all her ideas are good.

The story is amusing, engaging, and quick to read. The pages are filled with illustrations that are colourful and enjoyable to look at.

Rita wants a Fairy Godmother is another fab book in a fast-growing series that I can see young children enjoying immensely as well as laughing along with Rita’s dawn of realisations about what could happen if her wishes come true.
