Hunky Dory's mother always told her, "You'll be the wickedest witch wherever the four winds blow." And why not? She was at the top of her class in charm school. She could make flowers wilt like wet spaghetti and thunder rumble like a whale's bellyache. And she could turn any prince into a frog - but she always changed him back. That's when Hunky knew there'd be a problem. Hunky Dory's interest in wishcraft over witchcraft gets her kicked out of charm school. Now she's determined to follow her heart and become a fairy godmother. But how to go about doing it? She gives a woodsman a new mustache, and grants Wolf his strange wish for a grandmother costume. Yet it all seems so unsatisfying, somehow. Finally, motivated by jealousy over her friend Rumpelstiltskin's crush on the girl in the roomful of straw, she meets the ticket to realizing her career dream -- Cinderella

Educating Esmé : diary of a teacher's first year by Esmé Raji Codell( Book )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and Portuguese and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the uncensored diary of a young, beginning elementary school teacher. She started teaching in an inner-city, Chicago public school, where gangs attacked her class and her own students stabbed a substitute with a pencil. The most trying challenges she faced were from administrators who questioned her unconventional techniques (such as dancing with students, roller skating in the hallways, and creating a historical time machine from an old refrigerator), even after she sharply improved her students' standardized test scores and won a prestigious teacher award. The author prettifies nothing about her frenetic, often frustrating first year. (Sm)
