Bad Hair Day

18527499Goodreads Synopsis:    After a tough day at school, I am NOT in a good mood. The perfect pick-me-up? A trip through our magic mirror! When my brother and I -- plus our new dog -- end up in the story of Rapunzel, we can't resist climbing her hair. Oh no! 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!

My Thoughts:

-    I thought it was funny that Abbey kept messing things up. Usually Jonah is the trouble maker, and he did a couple dumb things, but Abbey is the one who really screws up in this one.

-    Abbey is a little bossy for a 10 year old. It bugs me sometimes, but on the flip side, she gets things done.

-    Maryrose intrigues me. I wonder what she has in store for Abbey and Jonah.

-    I like the twist on Rapunzel for this one, especially since Abbey and Jonah ruin Rapunzel's hair. I thought that was hilarious. I also think Rapunzel and Pickles' happy ending is awesome.

-    I still think these are cute, but I'm getting a little burnt out on them. I think i need to take a break from the fluff reads.

  1. They all sound like, yes, you could get burned out on them but I think they sound cute and probably would have adored them as a kid.

  2. I can see why you'd get burned out on them. I'm not sure I would enjoy them. They seem too young. Maybe if I were reading them with a kid or to see if my child would like them. Maybe, I'm just cynical.
