Cory is a young tooth fairy in training who wants to be anything but that except there's no way the Tooth Fairy Guild or her mother will let that happen After yet another bad night on the job Cory uits t This is a very fun look at the life of fairy tale and nursery rhyme characters and their world Cory is a tooth fairy but she really hates it It's the family business though so she encounters a great deal of resistance when she tries to find new work She flits from job to job looking for one that suits her and along the way she babysits for the old woman who lives in the shoe sells seashells by the seashore and has other whimsical adventures This is the set up for a new series that is going to be utterly delightful It also to me skews a bit younger than Baker's books like The Wide Awake Princess

The Fairy Tale Matchmaker The Fairy Tale Matchmaker #1Il Marjorie asks Cory to help set her up with a boy that Cory taps into a power she never knew she had As she tries to understand her new found romantic visions will Cory finally discover her own true pa Grade C Release date October 7 2014This e galley was provided by Bloomsbury and NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewThe Good the Bad and the Ugly Like I've said before middle grade has been very hit or miss for me lately Unfortunately The Fairy Tale Matchmaker was not one of the better ones I've read Throughout the whole book I felt very confused There wasn't enough world building just many many characters introduced and the plot was much too slow for MG It's mentioned in the synopsis that Cory takes up matchmaking but that plot doesn't appear until at least 60% in Most middle schoolers I know would give up if the plot took that long to develop Also throughout the entire book I was very confused about the characters' ages They talk a lot about dating and a school that sounds vaguely like high school but most protagonists in MG are 11 13Other stray observations the sentences were a bit choppy Voices weren't uniue I did like Cory's grandfather and I wish we saw with him I also enjoyed seeing familiar nursery rhyme and fairytale characters Plus the Boogie Man actually boogies The Verdict Not at all what I hoped it would be If you're unsure about The Fairy Tale Matchmaker I'd skip it if I were you
