Grimwald's Evil Plan by Rachel McGrath revolves around 8-year-old Grimwald, who is a fairy-in-training at the Good Fairy School so that when he grows up he will be able to grant wishes and make those happy-ever-after endings possible. But Grimwald does not want to become a good fairy. He finds it dull and boring. He wants to have some mischief and fun and fill his stories with evil wizards, where the prince is locked in a dungeon, and the princesses have to live with goblins and dwarfs. He decides to be different and write a story where he will be the bad guy and the ending will be funny and filled with mischief. Though he is not evil, Grimwald makes his story different so that everyone will remember him now as an Evil Fairy. But will he change and decide to become a good fairy? Read the book to find out!

The book is imaginative and loaded with mischief, adventure, and fun. Being good is boring for any child and they will love Grimwald and his idea of transforming from being a goody-goody person to a mischievous boy. The story might make children try out a few tricks, but will also make them realize that they will be reprimanded for their mischief and bad behavior. The illustrations are wonderful and they breathe life into the scenes and characters. The book is fun. The naughty side of Grimwald captures the childhood of most kids and also conveys a good message to young readers. By the time the book is over, children will understand good from bad and right from wrong, and have their fun times in a good way.
