    Girl 1: You're my fairy godmother! Huh? What's happened to my clothes?
    Girl 2: I've turned them into a beautiful dress for dancing at the ball.

    What is a fairy godmother? Thanks.

    A Fairy Godmother is a well-known fictional character.
    She turns up (she materialises in a sprinkling of glittery stars and tinkling bells) at critical points in the story so that she can wave her magic wand and turn disaster into triumph.
