Where do fairy godmothers learn their magic? Everyone knows that Fairy Godmothers grant wishes but now you can find out how their modern counterparts learn how to do good in the world through their spells. Lily, Madison, Sophie, Ava, Emma and Olivia are working to collect their stars in this lively story sprinkled with fairy dust.

Synopsis

Lily's Shimmering Spell by Vivian French

Welcome to Stargirl Academy, the magical school in the clouds! Previously a rather old-fashioned establishment, it has been reopened by its head teacher to train children to be modern day fairy godmothers. Fairy Mary McBee selects a group of girls: Lily, Ava, Madison, Sophie, Emma, Olivia - and Melody and Jackson who think they're better than everyone else. The girls learn lots of spells - shimmering, starry, shining, sparkling, glittering and twinkling ones - which they use to fix problems and help people in trouble. For every successful mission they gain a star, and once they have six stars they will be fully qualified stargirls! Ava leads the first mission and decides they should teach Lily's horrible great aunt a lesson. With a new spell the girls convince Great Aunt Acidity that supernatural forces are angry with her: floating crockery and a message written by a teapot make her change her ways. It's a triumph - they've earned their first star!

There are SIX lovely Stargirls who each have their own highly collectible sparkly books with vouchers for Stargirl treats:
