Synopsis

Mavis know what she wants to be when she grows up -- a fairy godmother. She wants to make wishes come true. But exactly how does a person become a fairy godmother? Mavis practices watching over people in secret and popping up out of nowhere. She tries out costumes and magic wands, too. But when Mavis finally puts her magic to the test, the results are not encouraging at first.

This enchanting story sparkles with personality and humor as it brings Mavis face-to-face with a Cinderella who's been under her nose all along.
