About the book

Mirror, mirror, on the basement wall . . . Once upon a time my brother and I were normal kids. The next minute? The mirror in our basement slurped us up and magically transported us inside Snow White's fairy tale. I know it sounds crazy, but it's true. But hey—we're heroes! We stopped Snow White from eating the poisoned apple. Hooray! Or not. If Snow White doesn't die, she won't get to meet her prince. And then she won't get her happy ending. Oops.

Now it's up to us to:
  • Avoid getting poisoned
  • Sneak into a castle
  • Fix Snow White's story

And then, fingers crossed, find our way home.

About the book

Once upon a time my brother and I found a magic mirror. Tonight the mirror swept us into Cinderella's fairy tale. Now, we are NOT messing this story up. No way. Cinderella is going to marry her prince just like she's supposed to. Uh-oh. Cinderella broke her foot and there's massive swelling. The glass slipper won't fit, the prince won't know she's the one for him, and they won't live happily ever after. And it's all our fault!

To save the day we'll need to:
  1. Learn how to use a dustpan
  2. Stay out of jail
  3. Find Cinderella a job
  4. And make sure true love finds its way

We just have to get it all done before the clock strikes twelve and the chance for a happy ending is gone...forever!

Good night, sleep tight,
Don't let the magic mirror bite...

But the mirror ends up pulling me and my brother, Jonah, into Sleeping Beauty's story--and this time, my friend Robin comes with us, too! When Robin pricks her finger on the spindle, I know we're in trouble. Now she's fast asleep, Sleeping Beauty is wide awake, and I have to:

  • Host a fake birthday party for Jonah
  • Find a prince to wake up Robin
  • Avoid getting cursed by scary fairies
We only have ten hours to make things right...or this day will become a nightmare!

About the book

Hair today, gone tomorrow…

When my brother and I end up in the story of Rapunzel, we can’t resist climbing her hair. But 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!

Brrrrrr. This fairy tale is freezing!

When Jonah and I land in a winter wonderland, we realize we must be in the story of the Snow Queen. This Snow Queen is super mean, and she turns our dog into an ice sculpture!

So we have to:

  • Defrost our furry friend
  • Ride a very chatty reindeer
  • Learn to ice-skate
  • Escape from a band of robbers
And if we’re not careful…we could end up frozen ourselves!

About the book

Ever since the magic mirror erased his memory, my brother, Jonah, doesn’t believe that we really visit different fairy tales. So it’s a relief when the mirror sucks us into a new story – and this time, it’s Beauty and the Beast!

Hurrah! Or maybe not. When Jonah picks a rose from the Beast’s garden, my brother messes up the story. The Beast is so angry he takes Jonah prisoner…instead of Beauty! But if the Beast doesn’t meet and fall in love with Beauty, then his curse will never be lifted, and Jonah will be trapped in the palace forever!

Now I have to:
  1. Find Beauty
  2. Deal with a wicked fairy named Jax
  3. Restore Jonah’s memory
  4. Play matchmaker

If I don’t fix this mess in time, the situation could get pretty ugly…

About the book

Ribbit ribbit! Siblings Abby and Jonah are in for a surprise when the magic mirror in their basement pulls them into the classic story of "The Frog Prince." Abby knows how the tale goes: the princess kisses the frog, and he transforms into a handsome prince. Right? WRONG. Turns out the princess is spoiled and mean, and wants nothing to do with the kindly little frog. It's up to Abby and Jonah to help their new friend, the frog, while also making sure the story doesn't spin out of control. But things are never easy when you're fracturing fairy tales!
