About Nell of Gumbling: Seventh grade is no fairy tale. From the bestselling author of Okay Witch comes an utterly enchanting graphic novel-diary hybrid about a twelve-year-old girl living an ordinary life in a magical land...disappointment, friend drama, adventure, mystery, and all! You might think that life in the town of Gumbling is like something out of a storybook, but to me it's just home! I mean, sure, my dads run a magic star farm, my best friend Myra is a fairy, and my second-best friend Gil is as small as my thumb, but I'm just like any other kid. EXCEPT that one day I'm going to be a world-famous artist!!! That's why I just had to land my dream apprenticeship with THE Wiz Bravo. Too bad that instead I'm apprenticed to boring old Mrs. Birdneck in the town archives. How am I ever supposed to become a real artist if I'm stuck in the moldy dungeon of the Castle Memorial Community Center? Having the world's worst apprenticeship is bad enough, but now there are some weird strangers hanging around town who are talking about turning Gumbling into a fancy resort. And everyone is completely freaking out about it. Now it seems like all Myra cares about is saving the town--WITHOUT ME. All I want is for this school year to have a happily ever after, but that might not be so easy...
