Brrrrrrrr. This fairy tale is FREEZING!
Even though my brother and I had decided to stay away from the magic mirror, our puppy had other plans -- he bounded right in. What choice did we have but to go in after him?
When we land in a winter wonderland, we realize we must be in the story of The Snow Queen. And this fairy tale is nothing like the movie. This Snow Queen is super-mean, and she turns our dog into an ice sculpture!
To get home we'll 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!
- I thought Beauty and the Beast was supposed to be next? I guess Frozen/The Snow Queen was too much to resist writing about.
- I'm glad the fairy tale twists are based on the original fairy tales and not Disney's version.
- As usual, this was cute, fun, and humorous. This was a clever twist on The Snow Queen, and I'm sure my daughter will enjoy this.
- I love that Abbey admitted to being bossy! I complained about that in the last book, and she fessed up to it. Abbey is definitely improving in that department.
- I liked the Frozen references, and I liked that Abbey and Jonah realize and acknowledge the differences in the Frozen and the original story.
- I love that the goal in this story was to save the dog!
- I think I keep reading these because the characters are endearing, the lessons are good ones, and I find these a light, fun, and cute read.
- I wonder what will happen in the next books, the ending had a little twist/surprise, and I'm not sure how this will play out. The fairy in the mirror intrigues me. I want to meet her! What is her plan for Abbey and Jonah?
