What kinds of birthday traditions do you having in your home? Do you make a cake together? Do you go out for ice cream? Is there breakfast in bed? Do you decorate their room in balloons and streamers? Or do you trail toilet paper up and down all over and around their room?
The author is sharing her own tradition of a fairy-tailed wish with children and families everywhere to inspire a fairy-tailed movement of sorts in celebration of birthdays. Bri is tucked into bed and asleep the night before her birthday. Susie, Dax, and Lily have been assigned to fairy-tale Bri’s room for her birthday and the mission has to go off without a hitch.
Susie, Dax, and Lily, the tiniest of fairies, use their wits and strength to sneak into Bri’s room and decorate her room from top to bottom with toilet paper. Of course there are all kinds of obstacles, door knobs, towers of blocks, toys, and stuffed animals, but they get the job done. When a tower of blocks tumbles over, Susie, Dax, and Lily barely escape before Bri wakes up to her surprise. Susie was lucky enough to watch Bri’s face for a moment before she quickly escaped. Then it was Bri’s job to decide how she would get out of bed. Will she be ninja-like leaping over strips of toilet paper or dance like a ballerina over and under the strips?
On the eve of a birthday, a child just has to make a wish to be fairy-tailed and the next morning, they will open their eyes in wonder about the fairies tricks overnight.
You’ve made your wish; we’re on our way
Zoom through the night for your birthday.
Up and down in your room, we’ll sail
Over and under, till you’re Fairy-Tailed.Megan Pighetti – FAIRY-TAILED WISH
The end of the book shares photos of real-life kids who’ve been fairy-tailed and the opportunity to submit your own photos. Even in times like these, where toilet paper may be hard to come by, the author encourages families to be responsible and reuse their fairy-tails.
