The Fairy Godmother Academy #1: Birdie's Book

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Where do fairy godmothers come from?

When Birdie goes to visit her grandmother for the first time, she learns that her grandmother is a fairy godmother—which means Birdie's a fairy godmother too! Trained by fairies in a magical land called Aventurine, human fairy godmothers have been hidden protectors of the world for centuries. Birdie' s family talisman, a singing stone, has been broken, and now only Birdie can use the stone to travel to Aventurine to repair it.

When she gets there she meets Kerka, a warrior-like girl who has been sent to help her find the other half of the stone. Will Birdie and Kerka have the knowledge and strength to banish the shadow that has come over both the garden in Aventurine and Birdie's family? One thing's for sure—no one who travels to Aventurine will ever be the same again!

For girls who are fans of Harry Potter and have outgrown the Disney Fairies series and the American Girl books, the Fairy Godmother Academy is the perfect series—fantasy books filled with magic and adventure but grounded by contemporary girls and issues.

The series boasts an amazing Web site that allows girls to enter the world they visit in the books. There they can do activities both on- and offline, vote for things they'd like to see in the books, and connect with other Fairy Godmother Academy fans.

Apr 27, 2015 – Bozarth gently melds magic, family history and self-determination in this multilayered debut, first in the Fairy Godmother Academy series. Sarah Cramer Bright (nicknamed "Birdie" for her redbird-colored hair) has been uprooted from California to New York, but it's not all bad news: she now has the opportunity to reconnect with her enigmatic Granny Mo. Birdie takes the reader along as her companion and confidante, sharing her love and knowledge of plants as she ventures into her grandmother's extensive and mysterious gardens. While resting near a waterfall, Birdie dreams herself into the fairy land of Aventurine, "a land for only the strongest dreamers.... Dreamers with destinies." But Aventurine is more than a dream if Birdie and her guide, Kerka, can complete their quest to find the missing piece of the Singing Stone, Birdie can become a Fairy-Godmother-in-Training and have magic in her world "that can make a difference, not just to people, but also to the world itself." Bozarth crafts an alluring world that encourages lingering and further visits. Although conceived as part of an online experience, this novel is strong enough to stand by itself. Ages 8 12.
