32 pages

Hector has a big problem that requires the help of a fairy godfather. So he writes a note to the universe to ask for a fairy godfather. But he mixes up the “g” and “d”. Much to his surprise the Fairy Dogfather shows up. Hector might be the luckiest kid in the world except the Fairy Dogfather smokes a cigar and uses big words. And he doesn’t seem the least bit interested in Hector’s problem or granting wishes. All he wants to do is eat. And he even makes Hector fetch the newspaper for him. Typical dog.

The addition of a glossary helps young readers understand what the heck the Fairy Dogfather is talking about. Alexandra Day’s Norman Rockwell-esque illustrations add another layer of enjoyment to this delightful story. Destined to become a classic, The Fairy Dogfather is a great addition to your home library to be read again and again.
