Whatever After: Fairest of All (2012)

Whatever After: Fairest of All. Sara Mlynowski. 2012. Scholastic. 170 pages.

Abby and Jonah are modern day children traveling--at least in this first book--through a magic mirror to the land of fairy tales.   Abby and her brother Jonah accidentally ruined the story of Snow White when they prevented her from eating the witch's poisoned apple. Now, they must come up with a way to set things right, and introduce Snow White to her Prince Charming (Prince Trevor). Of course, this won't be an easy task, but with a little teamwork, anything can be accomplished.

I liked this one. After reading heavier books like Sever and The Wall, it is nice to have something so deliciously light and completely non-serious.

Read Whatever After: Fairest of All
  • If you're looking for a new series to introduce to young readers (age 8+)
  • If you are looking for a new fantasy series for the youngest of readers 
  • If you enjoy fairy tale retellings AND children's books (this is NOT a YA book; it is clearly a children's book.)
