KA-BOOM! is about a little fairy named Sprout that runs into trouble quite often. She has a shoe fetish, but is one of the queen’s favorites because in the end she gets the job done. In the story, Sprout meets a little girl named Taylor after blowing up Taylor’s dollhouse. Sprout doesn’t give up trying to get Taylor to trust her as Taylor believes Sprout is a fibbin' fairy.

More about the book:
Sprout is a fairy from Spritesville, Ohio. Her given name is Sprunetta Brunetta. She doesn’t like it because she thinks it sounds too much like somebody’s wicked sister. Since she is only four inches tall, all her friends call her Sprout.

This little fairy is in the service of her queen, the beloved Splaminda Herminda, who rules Spritesville. The queen sends Sprout to different places to do whatever job needs done. Sprout is not a perfect fairy, in fact, she is always getting into some kind of trouble and ends up on wild adventures. Queen Splaminda realizes Sprout’s problems but feels the fairy will grow out of her awkwardness, as she matures. Many of the other fairies doubt this. Taylor the little girl sprout meets isn't even too sure about this little fairy and it doesn' help when Sprout shrinks her after blowing up her dollhouse. The two end up on a wild adventure as Sprout tries to accomplish the task Queen Splaminda gives her. Somehow, Sprout manages to save the good and meek from the scary and sometimes bad…but…occasionally, she needs a little help and Taylor is happy to do so once they learn to be friends.
