The Very Fairy Princess Follows Her Heart, written by the mother-daughter team Julie Andrews Edwards and Emma Walton Hamilton, is book six of the The Very Fairy Princess series.
Gerry believes in her heart that she is a princess because she can feel the sparkle inside. Valentine’s Day is coming up and that day is a favourite for Gerry. She worked hard making sparkly valentines for everyone in her class, even for the boy who pulls her hair.
Her mommy gave her a folder like her daddy’s to keep all her special valentines safe, and on Valentine’s Day morning Gerry got all dressed up, grabbed the folder, and rushed out to catch the bus to school.
Gerry could hardly wait for when their teacher says it’s time for everyone to give out their valentines. She was so excited, so when it was time to pass out the valentines she eagerly opened her folder. Oh-oh! – she had one of her daddy’s folders filled with his work papers! She must have mixed them up. Her day quickly went from sparkly to un-sparkly. Although Gerry was very sad about the mistake, she came up with a special idea for each person in the class. This is another adorable story in the The Very Fairy Princess series by Julie Andrews Edwards and Emma Walton Hamilton. The story is told in a way that encourages the child reader to share from the heart, and is illustrated by Christine Davenier in bright and sweet images with lots of sparkle.
