Janette Rallison's books often make me laugh out loud, so I was excited to find out she will be attending the Tucson Festival of Books this March. I was looking at the bios in her books to try and see what little tidbits I wanted to mention, when I discovered that they are each different. For example, in It's a Mall World, her bio talks about things she learned as a mall connoisseur. In Just One Wish she mentions how she wished for a pony that has never arrived. The facts that stay the same are that she lives in Arizona with her husband and children. Now that I know how amusing her bios are I will be looking forward to reading them as well, but if you are interested in checking out something a little more substantial, like her books, I recommend My Fair Godmother and it's sequel My Unfair Godmother.
In the traditional fairy tale a Godmother often makes it all work out. But what happens if your fairy godmother didn't pass fairy training and needs to do some course makeup? That's the premise for these imaginative fairy tales. Chrissy ties these stories together as the failing godmother in training. She would rather be shopping and doesn't listen to the girls wishes very well. Unfortunately they end up stranded in the middle ages playing out pieces of various fairy tales, with hilarious results. If you enjoy her stories, be sure to check her out at the book festival as I imagine she will be just as enjoyable to listen to as to read.
