Gertrude, or Gert, gets sucked through a hole in her bedroom floor that transports her into Fairyland. Think: Alice falling into Wonderland, only this Alice has a really bad attitude and a penchant for murder. Gert gets dumped into Fairyland against her will, and then gets stuck there for 40 years. Despite the years that pass, Gert stays in the same child body, and never grows to like Fairyland. Actually, Gert HATES Fairyland. Like, she carries around a battle axe and murders anything that gets in her way. Oh, and she has a dirty mouth, but instead of the actual profanities, Fairyland morphs her curses to words like "fluff" and "gob-ding'd." It's so hilarious.

Absolutely fantastic, great story and beautiful bright bubblegum coloured illustrations.
Some bad language and violent images mean that this is definitely not for young readers. Over 18.
