Beatrice Gormley (Author), Emily Arnold McCully (Illustrator). Fifth Grade magic was a fabulous modern version of a fairy tale. The concept is simple enough: fifth-grade drama enthusiast Gretchen doesn't get an acting part for the school melodrama, and she invokes a fairy, who she is surprised to see appear. But the fairy godmother's magic doesn't turn out the way anyone thought it would, and leads to more problems.

Fifth Grade Magic book. Beatrice Gormley (Goodreads Author), Emily Arnold McCully (Illustrator). Gretchen fully expects to be the star of the fifth-grade play  .

Fifth-grader Alison Harrity is sure she will never beat obnoxious Spencer . This was such a delightful little book In the hopes of winning the fifth-grade chess championship, she seeks the help of Marvin Smith, a science super-genius from her older sister's.

Fifth-grader Alison Harrity is sure she will never beat obnoxious Spencer Cunningham in the class tournament until her friend equips her with an device, but troubles abound. This was such a delightful little book. In the hopes of winning the fifth-grade chess championship, she seeks the help of Marvin Smith, a science super-genius from her older sister's class, who discovers her problem: she's just too nice and gets shaken up whenever she plays against any other serious student.

With the help of Gretchen Nichols, the main character in Gormley's Fifth Grade Magic (Dutton, 1982), Amy discovers that she possesses a magic calendar-one that will bring to pass anything that she writes on it. Amy wants more than anything to attend the Young Theater program during the summer just like everyone else. Until she understands the magical abilities of her calendar, she mistakenly arranges for a halo to appear on her head before a modeling session and to have a twin just as she arrives at school

Gretchen is jealous of a long blond-haired classmate named Amy. Amy is Mrs. Sheppard's favorite student. She doesn't do stupid things like pass around a signed picture of the teacher drawn in an unflattering light. Worst of all, Amy was chosen over Gretchen for the lead in Polly's Pies in Peril, the fifth grade spring play. No auditions were held for the play, so Gretchen didn't have the chance to show off the acting she'd been practicing with the other girls every day at recess.

While Gretchen is in her room crying over this turn of events, she remembers something Mrs. Sheppard always says about a fairy godmother not magically appearing to solve all your problems. Gretchen spontaneously calls out for her godmother, and a child sized fairy dressed in a too large uniform appears. After the obligatory initial shock, Gretchen explains her situation and asks Errora for help. The first order of business is to cut off Amy's hair. This, Errora says, will break the spell the girl has over the teacher and secure Gretchen the lead role in the play. The next day at school, Amy's hair is so short that she resembles class clown Dennis Boyd. Mrs. Sheppard is weirdly disapproving of the haircut, but she doesn't take away Amy's part in the play.

Errora's next attempt at getting Gretchen into the play is a little more invasive. She suggests that the girls switch bodies, a la Freaky Friday. The only problem is Amy doesn't know what's going on and her outbursts about being Amy trapped inside Gretchen's body have everyone thinking she's gone crazy. Also, Gretchen can't abide Amy's overbearing stage mother, who forces her daughter to audition for underwear commercials. Gretchen quickly rushes back home to reverse the spell.

Errora's last magic trick is to give poor Amy the chicken pox (Gretchen is her understudy). Unfortunately, Gretchen used her class photo for the spell and Errora got Amy and Dennis mixed up. Dennis, who didn't want to be in the play at all, had been assigned the role of the villan. With Dennis out sick, Mrs. Sheppard is forced to beg Gretchen to take over his part. Gretchen is hesitant at first because she'd really had her heart set on the lead, but she ends up doing a great job. In a clever twist, Errora turns out to be a child fairy who snuck out with her aunt's "injuctulator" (magic making device). This was one of my favorite books as a child. There is a sequel focusing on Amy (who turns out to be a very nice girl) called More Fifth Grade Magic.

Fifth Grade magic was a fabulous modern version of a fairy tale. The concept is simple enough: fifth-grade drama enthusiast Gretchen doesn't get an acting part for the school melodrama, and she invokes a fairy, who she is surprised to see appear. But the fairy godmother's magic doesn't turn out the way anyone thought it would, and leads to more problems. At the end, we find out the secret of the fairy godmother, and Gretchen gets what she wants.
This book is written very well, and has lots of little treats for you to find. I feel that this is more literary than Mail-Order Wings; the beginning almost invokes Ramona's distinct voice and strong opinions, and the author completely takes you into Gretchen's little mind. Gretchen's growth throughout the book is done in a very believable and complete way.
One of the fun aspects of this book is the fairy godmother's tool of choice; instead of an old-fashioned magic wand, she uses and Enchantulator, which helps her find out things she can do to help Gretchen, and sends out colored sparks when casting magic. There's also the school play, a melodrama, Polly's Pies in Peril. (Polly Winsum needs to save her pie business from the evil banker Blakheart.) The snippets of this were delightfully over-the-top!
Other reviewers didn't mention Amy, who was the golden-haired newcomer initially chosen for the part of Polly Winsum. (Amy looks the part of a traditional, naive heroine, but has the acting skills of a cardboard cutout.) Throughout most of the book, there's intense rivalry between Amy and Gretchen, at least on Gretchen's part, and most of the enchantments are directed at Amy. But the consequences of the tricky enchantments are done very realistically, and in one of the delightful last scenes, Gretchen actually helps Amy's acting ability. I look forward to seeing Amy's character developed more in More Fifth Grade Magic.
Also, in many books where someone has a special talent, interest, or ability, it's very hard for the author to show us that. (I've yet to read a book that makes me understand how much the protagonist loves dancing, or drawing, or something, and let us visualize very distinctive and precise drawings, or dancing, or whatever.) But in Fifth Grade Magic, we can totally see Gretchen's love of acting, with her trying to get other people to act with her at recess, or memorizing all of the lines in the play, or what she does in the fabulous last scene. This is a very good book.
I disagree with the previous reviewer that the ending doesn't tie things up; everything that needs to be told to end the story is told, and there's one of the happiest endings I've ever seen. There may have been one page or so more, to help us feel more satisfied, but otherwise it was a very good ending.
So what are you waiting for?? Read this book already!
