Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Julia Beiker
Rarely does a book combine a strong plot with well-developed characters and an unexpected twist ending in a way that makes the reader feel as good as this one does. This delightful version of a deluded fairytale with a modernized spin brings together childhood favorites such as Jack and Jill, Sleeping Beauty and her prince, an evil stepmother, and even a girl named May who gives being a princess new meaning. This mad-capped story moves back and forth between the real world and fairyland in a manner not unlike Alice in Wonderland. I can only imagine how much fun author James Riley had in weaving familiar fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen into the sort of complete nonsense that makes this reader simply shake her head with a Cheshire cat smile. The action and the characters' slight sarcasm make this book a winner. This is the third—and final—addition to the "Half Upon a Time" trilogy. Reviewer: Julia Beiker
