well liked. But
even though sheâ€™s nice and smart and has a couple of
friends, sheâ€™s still pretty
much the invisible girl at school. So when the chance to
work with her friends
and some of the popular kids on an English project comes up,
Allie jumps at the
chance to be noticed.
And her plan would have worked out just fineâ€¦if they hadnâ€™t
been sucked into
a magical realm through a dusty old book of fairy tales in
the middle of the

I grew up loving to read fairytales but never really
considered why I so enjoyed them. Your book sounds intriguing
with the setting in a book of fairytales and the modern school
kid characters who suddenly find themselves there.

That's the thing with fairy tales. It only show one side of the story. Like Snow White rewritten by Neil Gaiman, I will never see Snow White like I do when I was a kid. Wicked and the Stepsister by Maguire, both are another side of the stories. Ever After with Drew Berrymore as Cinderella is another side of the story from all of the characters' point of view.
They are the kind of stories, I would go back to.

I've read all of Gregory Maguire's books, so I'm familiar with his sense of humor. Wicked was the book that got me started. I'm really looking forward to reading your book, to see your take on these stories, since I've always loved Fairy Tales, regardless of their form. This should be quite the adventure, and I should have quite an interesting start to my Fall reading. Congratulations on your book!!

What a gorgeous book cover! I have always loved fairy tales. There are so many spin-off stories and movies from many of them, which gives us a whole new unique story from the original. Yours sounds different and I would really enjoy reading it very much.

I loved Wicked. It really made me think and I loved how the author didn't just tell you everything. There were parts I still had questions about after reading the book. Looking forward to reading your take on fairy tales in the new book.

Congrats for your book.
Honestly, maybe i'm too old to read fairytales but i just love it. Nice to read and told it to my students, they are still 4 till 6 years old. They always looked so exited to hear me read it. And that was one of my spirit to start my day and finishing my works well.
