Whatever After #1: Fairest of All (4.5/5 stars, currently priced at $4.99)
A fresh, modern spin on a classic fairy tale–from bestselling author Sarah Mlynowski!
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.
Whatever After #2: If The Shoe Fits (4.5/5 stars, currently priced at $4.61)
This second book in Sarah Mlynowski’s charming new series puts a fresh spin on the Cinderella story!
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.
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!
Whatever After #3: Sink or Swim (5/5 stars, currently priced at $4.61)
Splash! This time, Abby’s magic mirror sucks her into the tale of the Little Mermaid.
Abby and her little brother Jonah get pulled through the mirror in their basement again–into the story of the Little Mermaid!
Talk about being a fish out of water! Abby and Jonah are not in their element in this underwater world. And when they accidentally mess up the Little Mermaid’s story, they must figure out a way to restore her happy ending. A hilarious, fractured-fairy-tale adventure under the sea.
Whatever After #4: Dream On (5/5 stars, currently priced at $4.99)
Good night, sleep tight,
Don’t let the magic mirror bite . . .
My friend Robin and I were going to have the best sleepover ever. We’d stay up late, eat s’mores, share secrets — and NOT knock on my magic mirror. I was NOT getting pulled into another fairy tale.
But the mirror STILL ends up pulling me and my brother, Jonah, into Sleeping Beauty’s story — and this time, 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!
