Sugar and Spice

29993747Goodreads Says:    That's the way the cookie crumbles!

Yum! Our magic mirror has dropped me and my brother, Jonah, into the story of Hansel and Gretel. If we're lucky, we may even get to taste the cake-house...

But we didn't count on accidentally getting trapped. The real Hansel and Gretel are on the run, and Jonah and I have taken their place. And the witch is making a kid casserole for dinner... 

Now we have to:
- Avoid being eaten 
- Pretend our dog is a cat
- Learn to make kale smoothies
- Befriend a talking duck 

Or we may never make it back to our home sweet home!

My Thoughts:

-    I usually get sick of a series after so many books, but even though this is the 10th book, I'm still enjoying them. 

-    There is something really charming and refreshing about these books. They are fun and quick to read, and it is a nice break from my usual reads.

-    I love the fun and inventive twists on classic fairy tales. This one had a pretty funny twist in the end. I liked it.

-    I'm still very curious about Mary Rose. When are we going to get more of her story?

-    I thought it was interesting that this is the first book in the series that hasn't done a fairy tale that has been an animated Disney movie.

  1. These sound so cute. I think it's awesome you're not getting burnt out. Does your daughter read them with you? Does she like them?

    1. No, I started them before she was this level, but I think she would like them now. She is getting into intermediate books.

  2. I was going to ask the same thing Jenny did. Do you read them with Gnome? It sounds like something she might like, unless they're too long for her current age.

    1. I'm excited to share these with Gnome. I think she'll really like them.
