The Fairly Oddparents is one of those cartoon shows that can be enjoyed by both children and adults. Timmy has two fairy godparents because Cosmo and Wanda are a married couple. His godparents mirror his real parents in that both Cosmo and Mr. Turner are cute, not very smart, and often incompetent; while Wanda and Mrs. Turner are smarter and more competent than their husbands. Timmy's oblivious parents don't appear in this book, though.

Timmy's wishes usually go wrong in spectacular ways. This time it's a bit different. Cosmo and Wanda are off to the Six Wands Fairy Resort while their wands are in for their 50,000-wish tune=ups. They give Timmy a box filled with tokens, each token good for one wish, before they leave.

Timmy leaves the box on his front steps while he goes off to play his new game with his two best friends, A. J. and Chester, who happened to come by. Unfortunately for Timmy, the box is found by Tootie. Tootie wears ugly glasses, has braces on her teeth, and has a hairstyle that does nothing for her. Tootie is crazy for Timmy, which horrifies him. Now we have our plot: Tootie uses the tokens to get Timmy to play with her in ways he finds utterly humiliating, such as being dressed as a lady. Will his best friends see him and assume it's all voluntary? Worse, will Tootie's big sister, Vicky, Timmy's evil, sadistic, monet-grubbing baby-sitter, see him? If you watch the show, you know the answers.

How will Timmy get out of this predicament? Can he get those wish tokens away from Tootie? Will Cosmo and Wanda suddenly pop in with their wands newly tuned, ready to rescue him?

I'm pleased to be able to report that this book is true to the spirit of the show in prose and illustrations. I recommend it to FOP fans. ( )
