Description

Tansy Miller has always felt that her divorced father has never had enough time for her. But mistakenly getting caught on the wrong side of the law wasn' texactly how she wanted to get his attention. Enter Chrysanthemum "Chrissy" Everstar, Tansy's fairy in shining, er, high heels. Chrissy is only a fair godmother, of course, so Tansy's three wishes don't exactly go according to plan. And if bringing Robin Hood to the twenty-first century isn't bad enough for Tansy, being transported back to the Middle Ages to deal with Rumpelstiltskin certainly is. She'll need the help of her blended family, her wits, and especially the cute police chief 's son to stop the gold-spinning story from spinning wildly out of control. Janette Rallison pulls out all the stops in this fresh, fun-filled follow-up to the popular My Fair Godmother.show more

Our customer reviews

When I was little, I used to watch The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show. It had a segment called Fractured Fairy Tales, which was what I waited to see. They would take a fairy tale and change it. It was very funny, and was a little like this book. Tansy is very unhappy. She is very mad at her father because he left her family. He has remarried and is living in Arizona with his step-son and wife. When her dad left, Tansy gave up reading. It was a way to punish her dad. When her little sister gets a part in a Broadway tour, her mother sends Tansy to live with her father. When she gets there she doesn't make a whole lot of wise choices. She dates a hoodlum and gets arrested. The night that happens, Chrissy Everstar comes to give her three wishes. The problem with Chrissy's wishes is that they are never exactly what the wisher wants. First, Robin Hood and his merry men arrive in Arizona. Robin Hood is not a nice guy like the legends say. Then, Tansy and her whole family - plus her possible boyfriend - end up in the fairy tale Rumplestiltskin. I really liked this story because it shows the middle ages the way they were and not a romanticized version. The people are poor and dirty, and life is very hard there. Tansy has to think about how to trick not just Rumplestiltskin but how to get her whole family back to the twenty-first century, where she discovers that she had what she wanted all along. If you like fairy tales, pick up MY UNFAIR GODMOTHER.show more
