The Girl Who Wished To Be Skinny (2011 Watty Award Winner)

Megan Parker is a 14 year old girl who HATES being fat. She absolutely abhores her body. From her chubby thighs to her hairy arms she just can't stand looking at herself in the mirror. While in the girl's bathroom she wishes that she could be skinny. To her surprise, a fairy godmother appears from sparkle and glitter and tells her that she'll grant her wish but only on one condition. Megan quickly learns that looks aren't the only thing that matters to attract boys, and more importantly, they aren't the only thing that matters in life. A short fairy tale for all ages.
