Because there is no such thing as an
ordinary girl.

This smart, subversive fairy tale is set in a kingdom whose palace is made entirely of glass and whose inhabitants scorn dirt and untidiness...[Bloom] juggles thematic elements with grace, mixing fairy-tale parody with maker tale and girl-power story to celebrate mess, chaos, and big plans. When seen up close, Cronin suggests, fairy-tale “magic” might really be no more than the willingness to get one’s hands dirty. Ages 4–8.
