What seventh-grader hasn't wished for a little magic now and then to smooth the course of true love? Magic certainly seems like the only thing that will get Ben to notice Morgan, and lo and behold, it shows up in the person of Gretta Fleetwing, a tiny, puckish fairy-godmother-in-training whom Morgan finds one day in her old dollhouse. What Gretta lacks in size, she more than makes up for in daring, ambition, and wit. She casts one spell after another upon the mortal fools, with disastrous and often hilarious results, until the sought-after Ben finally comes to his senses and finds the courage to begin a friendship with Morgan. Junior-high angst mingles nicely with magic's unintended consequences in this fun play on Shakespeare; it's all trickery and mismatched couples until everything comes together as neatly and satisfyingly as in the original.
