Overview

Hair today, gone tomorrow... After a tough day at school, I am NOT in a good mood. The perfect pick-me-up? A trip through our magic mirror! When my brother and I -- plus our new dog -- end up in the story of Rapunzel, we can't resist climbing her hair. Oh no! Her smooth locks suddenly look like they've been attacked by a cheese grater. Maybe a trim will help... Snip, snip. SNIP. Oops. Now Rapunzel's hair is too short and we're trapped! So we have to: - Find the tower's secret door - Avoid getting swallowed by a giant spider - Locate Pickles (aka the prince) - Reunite Rapunzel with her parents If we don't untangle this knotty tale soon, we could be stuck in this mess for good!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for Whatever After:

"An uproariously funny read. The swift pace of the tale and non-stop action . . . will enchant readers from the first page." -- Kirkus Reviews
"Hilarious . . . with unexpected plot twists and plenty of girl power." -- Booklist
"Giddy, fizzy, hilarious fun!" -- Lauren Myracle, author of Luv Ya Bunches
"Tons of fractured fairy tale fun!" -- Meg Cabot, author of Allie Finkle's Rules for Girls and The Princess Diaries
"The feminist in me adored it, and the mother in me loved how my daughter would long to cuddle in close as we read together." -- Danielle Herzog, blogging for The Washington Post

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.
