The book that launched the #1 New York Times bestselling series about believing in yourself and finding your own inner sparkle—from the mother-daughter team of musical icon Julie Andrews and author Emma Walton Hamilton!
While her friends and family may not believe in fairies, Geraldine knows, deep down, that she is a VERY fairy princess. From morning to night, Gerry does everything that fairy princesses do: she dresses in her royal attire, practices her flying skills, and she is always on the lookout for problems to solve. But it isn't all twirls and tiaras – as every fairy princess knows, dirty fingernails and scabby knees are just the price you pay for a perfect day!
This new picture book addition to the Julie Andrews Collection features the joyful illustrations of Christine Davenier, and is sure to inspire that sparkly feeling within the hearts of readers young and old.

"[Geraldine] lets kids know it's not necessary to be prim and proper to be a 'real' princess; princesses who just want to have fun will find plenty of that here."Booklist
