Publishers Weekly, 1995-11-27 In The Godmother (1994), Snow White, aka Snohomish ``Sno'' Quantrill, was one of several unfortunates aided by fairy godmother Felicity Fortune. This delightful sequel puts Sno's further adventures on center stage as, no longer threatened by her evil stepmother, the young womanæwith the full approval of her father, the ``King of Rock'' ('n' Roll)æheads off to Ireland to become an apprentice to Felicity. Ireland is a revelation to this West Coast media child. There, she meets the godmothers' governing council, including the oldest sprite of them of all, Queen Tatiana, and is given three wishes to use as needed. Soon Sno begins encountering denizens from ancient tales: Puss in Boots, who follows the funeral procession of the King of Cats around Ireland; a Gypsy boy who, searching for his frail and disoriented old mother, falls in with pure evil in the form of a mercenary seeking to foment further discord in Ireland; a flying horse and talking swans, who come to the aid of Sno and her friends. Through third-person narrative and Sno's first-person journal entries, Scarborough offers another tale of modern-day magic and its mythic wellsprings without making it appear ridiculous or sinisteræbut simply enchanting.
