Summary

Wilma goes to do her work experience for her Grade Four Certificate in magic with her great-aunt Angria - who was the 13th faerie who put Sleeping Beauty to sleep for a hundred years. The spell is coming to an end in a few days, and Angria is determined to stop the prince from awakening her with a kiss.

Wilma is drawn into her wicked plan, which involves going to work in the kitchens of the 12 good fairies and luring Prince Brett away from the castle.

But Wilma is having doubts - should her aunt be interfering? And what about all those spell-frozen people in a hidden room?

Add in a sulky talking wolf called Ralph and Denzil, a kidnapped cat, and Wilma has her hands full. Work experience was never like this!

A Fun Story from Kaye Umansky!

I have always loved Kaye as an author. She really has a way of replicating some of my feelings from a good Enid Blyton book. They always make me want to be a kid again, always feeding my imagination.
I feel that Wilma doesn't have the staying power of Pongwiffy in my mind. I think this is perhaps why Kaye only wrote 2 books on this character.
I felt a little let down by the narrator. Its not that she is bad ... its just, and again I reference it, Pongwiffy's Prunella Scales made each character feel different and well rounded. Clare Higgins just feels like she has no heart for the story. She is just reading it, nor performing it.
