Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth Fronk
Could things get worse for fifth-grader Abby? She loses the spelling contest and her younger brother Jonah insists on singing a stupid song. Fortunately her dog, Prince, does not mind that she cannot spell. Jonah decides another trip through their magic mirror might help. Along with Prince, they end up in a large tree and hear singing. When the singer mentions hair, Abby realizes they are in Rapunzel’s story. Jonah and Abby want to just say hello and not alter the story. However, when Jonah’s soccer cleats tear Rapunzel’s hair, and the witch arrives, Abby, Jonah, Rapunzel and dog must find some way to escape the tower and find the prince. At the castle, they realize meeting Prince Tristan could be a days-long wait so Abby decides to find Rapunzel’s home. Fortunately Prince Tristan walks by during his lunch break. For middle school fans of altered fairy tales, this latest entry in the “Whatever After” series gives a modern spin to Rapunzel’s story. Abby and Rapunzel both realize their potential lies beyond just one feature, be it hair or spelling. Current fans of the series and new fans can delight in this tale as it stands alone. Fortunately a new story using the Beauty and the Beast tale is coming soon. Reviewer: Elizabeth Fronk; Ages 8 to 12.
