Abby wants her stories unchangeable. When Jonah stops Snow from eating the poisoned apple, the story is changed. Abby and Jonah hatch a variety of schemes to make the story follow the pattern they both know but nothing works. The kids have lots of adventures as they travel from the dwarves' cottage to Snow White's castle. Along the way Abby does things she never thought she would be brave enough to do and learns that sometimes change is good.
The story is filled with humor and heart. I recommend it to middle grade fantasy lovers.
About The Book: Abby and Jonah, two siblings, move to Smithville. Then one night, they explore their basement and get sucked into an old mirror. As they arrive in Snow White's story, Jonah "saves" her from getting poisoned in the apple part. But, as Abby thinks about it...Snow White won't get her happily ever after! Will Abby and Jonah find a way to save the story? Or does Snow live UNhappily ever after?
These are wonderful books for young and old!
Fairest of All is a retelling of Snow White's story, and it was really cute. It was a super quick read (170 pages in under 2 hours!), but it was fun, too!
The book is told from Abby's perspective, a 10-year-old girl with aspirations of being a judge when she grows up. She's the most responsible, and probably smartest, 10-year-old I've ever "known".
I watched the Disney version of Snow White not that long ago, and I certainly didn't love it as much as I did when I was a kid. She's too prim, her voice is too high, and it's just kind of boring. But Sarah Mlynowski reinvents the story in a totally believable, 2000′s kind of way. I definitely found it more interesting, and the twist at the end was great!
In short, I would highly recommend this book for anyone who has ever liked fairy tales, especially Snow White. I can't wait to read the next book in the series!
Without thinking the pair thwarts the evil Queen's attempt to poison Snow White with an apple. Great, they saved the day. But wait, if Snow White never eats the poison apple, then she never meets her prince, and won't get her happily ever after. Oops! Now it is up to Abby and Jonah to set the story straight and make sure that Snow White gets her happy ending, and that Abby and Jonah can make it home before their parents discover they are missing.
Filled with cute adventures, and creative ideas, Mlynowski gives the fairytale of Snow White an inventive twist. Whatever After: Fairest of All is a great beginning to the new Whatever After series.
