Read an Excerpt

"So now can I go play duckball?" Jonah asks. "Prince is being good. Look."

I glance down at Prince. He's napping. I yawn again. I wish I could take a nap.

I look over at the game. It does actually look like fun. "Okay, fine. Go ahead."

"Yay!" Jonah says, and runs over to Aladdin.

"I can play, right?" Jonah asks him.

Aladdin smiles. "Sure. But I'm pretty good, so watch out," he says, and whams the ball at Jonah. But not that hard, I notice.

Awww, Aladdin really is a nice guy.

Jonah catches the ball and throws it at a boy. The ball bounces off his leg and hits a girl in the stomach.

The girl doubles over and at first I think she's hurt, but she's laughing. "Guess I'm out," she says, and tosses me a ball.

Oh, why not? I AM pretty good at dodgeball. I just hate the getting-hit-with-the-ball part.

"Try to get me!" Aladdin calls to me, grinning. I grin back and throw the ball as hard as I can and --

Oops. The ball hits him right in the face.

GULP. His nose is bleeding!

Oh, NO!

"I am SO sorry!" I say, rushing over to him. "Are you okay?"

Jonah runs over to us, too, looking worried.

The rest of the kids stop playing and gather around.

"I'll be okay," Aladdin says, covering his nose with his hand. But he doesn't look that okay. "I'll just run home for an ice pack. You guys keep playing!"

The rest of the kids start the game again, but Jonah and I head back over to the stone wall, watching as Aladdin dashes off down the road.

"I feel terrible," I say. I started off wanting to help Maryrose and now I've ended up HURTING Aladdin!

So clever and imaginative, so well-plotted and funny. What a delight, and what a treasure for young girls starting to read independently.

I think they are cheesy. All it talks about is how Abby and Jonah mess up fairy tales and try to fix them. ( WHO USES THE NAME "JONAH" IN BOOKS ANYWAY!) I recommend these books for children 6-9 years. The fantasy books I like are like "Land of Stories" or "Ever After High". Those are much more adventurous and less cheesy. I recommend Ever After High for 8 years and up. Land of Stories 10 years and up
