Editorial Reviews

Review

“In this enjoyable twist on a Charles Perrault fairy tale . . . Frederick keeps readers entertained with an action-packed, zany plot and an even wackier cast.”
--The Horn Book Magazine

"For fans of fantasy and fairy tales, this is a gem."–School Library Journal

"Recommended for fans of pure wackiness."
---Booklist

"Fans of Frederick’s The Mother-Daughter Book Club should thoroughly enjoy this modern version of an old fairy tale."
--Library Media Connection

"A light-hearted read, sure to entertain no matter what your taste—flowery or toad-ally gross." (Yankton Daily Press and Dakotan)

Format: Hardcover
Thoroughly enjoyed this magical-realism fairy tale retelling. A very well-done Portland setting, and adults who are there but don't interfere overmuch. I would really like that necklace, sans magical powers. This book is definitely going on the gifts-for-nieces list.

What do two step-sisters who despise each other and are forced to sleep in the same bedroom end up having in common when one of the sister's mothers has to go on a trip to the international Space Station before her twelfth birthday and she forgets to tell her the real story about Great Aunt Aby? Why after Aunt Aby's visit is Cat having toads come from from her mouth every time she speaks and her nasty step-sister has flower's and diamonds? Everything seems to just get worse for Cat and the toads keep coming from her mouth while her step sister becomes Diamond Girl. The resolution to this story is a fun pack adventure. As the two girls battle out the toads, flowers and diamonds and try and avoid a trip to Area 51. This is a great and fun read!

We love Heather Vogel Frederick as an author. We were first introduced to her through her Mother Daughter Book Club Series. This was another hit with my teenage daughter who is an avid reader. It was very funny and a great read. It's tough to find good, happy, positive books these days for teenagers to read (girls or boys). During school she is required to read so much that is heavy and dark, we really work to find books that are upbeat and positive or just plain fun for down time reading. This hit the spot!
