One word : GLITTERRRRRRR!!!11omgzzzsotuhedcywtcifw
*Ahem*...Anywho...yeah...the glitter alone on the front of this book is quite likely to attract any girl's attention.
The pictures are very Fancy Nancy-esque (done in ink and color pencil on Kaecolor paper), though they are not quite as bright. Really the whole book is reminiscent of Fancy Nancy (and what girl isn't a fan of those books?), although Geraldine doesn't seem to care about being quite as fancy as Nancy, so long as she has her fairy wings and wand.
The things I dislike about this book are the illustrations - I don't think they are as clean and crisp or as well done as Fancy Nancy - and some of the text. It's hard to verbalize, but some of the words on the page are emphasized by being written in ALL CAPS (I have no problem with that in picture books), but also look...shakily written? A LITTLE LIKE THIS. I don't see myself using this book in a storytime, but despite its flaws it is written by the fabulous Julie Andrews...I would still be quick to recommend this series to all fans of books like Fancy Nancy and/or Pinkalicious.
(only 2.5 if your copy doesn't have glitter on the cover)
