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)

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.

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.

This book sounds like a fairy tale I've heard before. It's the same old stuff--the steppsisters, toads, and fairy godmothers-- but it is a cute story. A little weird but still good.

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!
