One Potato Review
The importance of dreaming big, yes, but also of keeping your options wide open if it turns out you’ve laid a big egg. Because even a fairy godmother has to take a vacation sometimes, and she might just leave her harebrained nephew at the switch. Witty and seemingly unrestricted by the logic that holds together more responsible fables. And cheeky and cheerful: Starlight may end up living in a junkyard, but at least she’s running the joint.
