This, being one of the first books I read in Middle School, is to this day one of my favorite books. It isn't a superficial book, but it is one that doesn't require too too much thought to understand. Blood, guts, and a couple of rolling heads made it interesting and 'edgy' for me, and the bond between Heather and Veronica made it worthwhile. I think it's easy to see pieces of yourself in both girls because everyone has a superficial and a workerbee side. (At least that's what I believe.) Keeping the books synopsis in mind, Veronica is able to roughly get them through most of it, and Heather is able to fake them the rest of the way, but there are still many conlicts, and one drastic change to their travelling party changes both of them. The book is well written, emotionally attatching, and just plain GOOD! Even if you aren't into fantasy, READ IT!!! Just try it and see if you like it. Chances are...

This is a delightful twist on plain ol' two girls get zapped to some weird world. Hilary and Veronica are fighting over a book in a resale shop because both of them need it for their book report that is due the next day. The next thing they know, they are in chapter two and soon, they accidentally shatter the heroine of the book who was turned to glass by the Fragile Hag. There is the Twilight Queen, the ultimate evil pain, the box, who is possibly the funniest character who screams at Hilary and is very vindictive for an inanimate object. Strathorn, the wizard who has minimal powers, Doggett the not-so-good-with-baking Kiblar elf, and Chattergee, the crazy talking squirrel who has a crush on Veronica are equally funny. This book had me laughing out loud which is wonderful for me. Read it when you need a look out how medieval towns were just as much tourist traps as ours are now, and just wait until you meet the fearsome dragon Karn, also known as Karnie.

This book was a fun, exciting, and a laugh out loud kind of book. The girls in the book make the most outrageous comments, destroy the story from a classic fairy tale to two girls doing anything to get out of a book. This story is fun to read in free time for entertainment!

A new look upon the average fairy tales in which you witness amongst other novels, and great read when looking for something to brighten your mood.

I loved this book! I liked how Heather and Veronica finally become friends. And poor Strathorn, but I loved the nicknames that Heather(the (fake) princess arebelle) gave the Galag Nur.(Mega-Prep,Dark Chocolate,Hot Salsa,Paddy 'O'Hotcakes) So funny!(at the end thers odd spelling but thats the way i sometimes write)

This book is a funny, emotional, romantic book. I own this book, so I would read it everyday if I could. I almost started to cry when I Schatorn got ate, but I was so happy at the end when I found out he was still alive. I have lended all my friends this book and they say this is the best book they have ever read.

This is a very entertaining and funny book if you are intrested in the whole mystical woodlawn creatures thing

Throughout the book familiar scenes flash before your eyes...familiar because they are just like scenes from LOR, Narnia, Harry Potter, etc. I was very disappointed by this. I loved the concept, of the two girls falling into the book and having to work things out together. I would also admit there were a few funny parts. But as far as originality? It was terrible.

If you like Tolkien,Narnia and Redwall, you will love this book. Written in chick lit style, it is a spoof of all of your fantasy faves. Veronica , Heather, and all the characters have really fun adventures as they figure out how to get home after mistakenly falling the magic land of Galma. If you don't believe me, check out the professional's review on 07/10/06 in Publishers Weekly--they absolutely 'get it'. Rumor has it, it is in the process of being optioned for a movie!! This is one I would recommend to every well read, and smart teen I know.

I'm sorry. usually I love every book I come across but this one ... I was really excited at first, 'cause there were some good jokes and an interesting plot. but then I realized, the characters are all stereotypes, and the author, while having a nice idea, didn't take it in a direction that made happily ever after quite work out. this book was unsatisfying for me, despite the fact that I am a medival partisan. I don't recommend it if you want to read something where your expectations are fulfilled.

I thought it was a very good book, except for one thing. The author elaborated on things that did not need to be elaborated on (the bunny and the expletives). But I found it very straightforward and easy to read. I reccommend it to all fantasy lovers.

it was just an ok book... nothing amazing really... a bit more to the pre teen reader...i found it boring at times and i had some laughs, nothing great..even though i laugh really easily... very clichéd.. the whole plot and charctors.

This was a fantastic book and I recommend it to you. It was different and never too dull. I do wish there was a semi different ending though. But...overall it was a great read.
