With all the twists, mishaps, and slapstick of a sitcom, Brauner and Mattson’s lively debut will hook readers from the moment Paige picks up her miniature magic wand...Halpin’s energetic b&w illustrations (not all seen by PW) are frosting on this comedic confection of a book.

Synopsis

Middle school is far from a fairytale for adorkable misfit Lacey Unger-Ware. When Lacey ends up with popular girl Paige Harrington's smart-mouthed fairy godmother, Katarina, trapped in her hair, life gets more magical—just not in a 'prince charming' kind of way. Katarina's wings are too damaged to continue her fairy duties, and Lacey must take over as Paige's fairy godmother. Distracted by her new responsibilities, Lacey's in danger of losing her best friend, Sunny. Can Lacey get the hang of magic, make Paige's dreams come true, and survive middle school? Barbara Brauner and James Iver Mattson's debut novel is full of heart and charm. Get ready for the Oh My Godmother series to cast a spell on tween girls!

Barbara lives with her bite-y, scratchy, and yet still oddly lovable rescue cat Jeeves.   Before he started writing with Barbara, James Iver Mattson worked in motion picture special effects, which, just like Oh My Godmother, often involved a lot of sparkles. James’ cat is named Fred, who is Jeeves’ sweeter-natured brother.Visit the duo online at www.braunermattson.com.Illustrator Bio: Abigail Halpin lives, draws, and dreams in northern New England.
