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)

After a 20-year career as a journalist, I decided it was high time to fulfill my lifelong dream of writing fiction for young readers. The rest, as they say, is history.

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.

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!

I love the writing style. It's such a fun idea. I love how she worked 'Area 51' into the plot! A great read for tween girls.
