The story is sweet: seven-year-old Anauf loses his beloved Grandma Meg but gains a fairy godmother in the form of Mrs. SWAK. She can time-travel and has some rad fairy assistants; not only that, she teaches Anauf valuable life lessons—like love everyone, even if you don't like them. This helps Anauf deal with bully Bernadette, and we watch as the two grow up and fall in like, if not quite love. If only the production had the same magic: I wanted to like it (my seven-year-old did), but the numerous production flaws (missed light cues, vague direction, an excessive number of flubbed or inaudible lines) were beyond tolerable. —Suzanne Scanlon
