    One thought on “Fairest of All”

    1. I loved this book so much. It was really good and funny.I read it in school and I thought it was very very very very very very good! I am a kid.I love to read books so that's why I decided to read this book!

    2. Okay, so I know this is not, like, high literature or anything, but I actually LOVED this audiobook and I think it's just about perfect for what it is. Teresa has been booktalking this one and I am so excited to add it to my booktalking repertoire, too. So, when Abby's dumb little brother Jonah knocks on this weird, old mirror in the basement of their new home, Abby & Jonah are transported to a fairy tale world and find themselves wrapped up in the story of Snow White. Only, before they figu [...]

    3. This book is about a girl named Abby and her little brother named Jonah. They find a mirror in their basement and Jonah knocked on the mirror and then suddenly they were in a forest. After a few minutes the saw an old lady and followed her. She went to a cottage. There was a girl there and the old lady was trying to give her an apple. Jonah ran after her and asked for the apple, then he noticed that the apple was poisoned and that she was evil Evelyn. The girl said thank you and let them in. Aft [...]

    4. The Good Stuff Charming and sweet Reminded me of some of Meg Cabot's middle grade Perfect for the reluctant reader Loved the humour, quirky and fun (very Canadian) It was refreshing to read a novel geared towards young girls that was sweet and innocent. It was the sort of thing I would have loved to read at that age. I know quite a few customers at my store that will enjoy this one - sold a copy of it last week to this sweet little girl - she read the first page and said mom we have to buy this [...]

    5. I have been feeling like a reading curmudgeon lately, and wasn't really expecting to like this. What a wonderful surprise! The writing, characters, and humor were just fresh and dynamic enough to make this appealing. I also like the fact that it isn't too long or involved; ust right for middle grade reluctant readers or kids who don't want their books to take forever. (I live with one of those. She'll read for hours and hours, but will not pick up books that appear long or daunting.) I could ima [...]

    6. My children absolutely love this series, and it all started with this book, which is intelligent, creative, clever -- and very funny. My only real issue with the book has to do with the cover design and not anything in the story itself. The cover, sadly, is one that turned my son off at first -- even though the series is just as delightful for boys as it is for girls. Proof: My son claimed he didn't want me to read this book to him, but whenever I read it to my daughter, he would sit in the hall [...]

    7. I loved it!It was cute and entertaining and quite hilarious.The perfect fairy tale twist for someone who just needs a break from any YA book.I decided to read this book one sunday afternoon because I jusy wanted to have some fun.Apperently,this book put me in a good mood,and I loved it.It was quite relatable.A must read!

    8. This is one of the books my oldest daughter and I read together this year. For school she is suppose to read for 20 minutes a day. Because she is struggling a bit we tend to read 40 minutes but alternate pages. This book and the series that is now up to ten books is a new spin on old tales. In some ways reminiscent of the fractured fairy tales, or Tony Abbott's Cracked Classics. It is the story of two modern day kids who get transported through a magic mirror into the events of the legend or sto [...]

    9. this book is a modern twist on fairy tale that we all know, Snow White. The main character Abby and Jonah go THROUGH a mirror that hisses and turns purple. Jonah and Abby come out from the mirror and they are in Snow White's fairy tale. Jonah and Abby stopped Snow from eating the poison apple. They told the seven dwarfs and Snow her fairy tale where there from since they haven't heard aboutt it. They try to help Snow find her Prince, but Snow keeps running away and Jonah and Abby want to go home [...]

    10. "Once upon a time, our life was normal. And then the mirror in our basement ate us." Ha!I could see my 10-year-old self loving this book! I've noticed Mlynowski's deadpan sense of humor in her adult novels but I wasn't expecting so much of it in her new children's book. The humor fit in perfectly with the absurdity of the story line! The plot was shaky towards the end- I don't like it when authors resolve conflict through sheer luck. Overall, I think any little girl who enjoys fairytales would l [...]

    11. I thought it was an amazing book.When I started the book, I couldn't put it down!I read almost the whole series of them and I can't wait to get the ninth book.

    12. Abby's little brother Jonah shakes her awake in the middle of the night. He's discovered that the strange mirror in the basement of their new home starts hissing when you knock on it. Jonah excitedly knocks again, and the mirror glows purple. Abby tries to stop him, but Jonah knocks a third time, and the two siblings (along with a stack of law books and a computer chair) are sucked through the mirror into a mysterious forest. When they interrupt an old lady trying to sell an apple to a young wom [...]

    13. This book was at 3 stars because I wasn't all that interested in this book but it was kind of funny and I didn't really want the book to end this book was about two kids named Abby and Jonah and they are heading to bed one night and then Jonah comes into Abby's room and says Abby come downstairs quick come downstairs the mirror is hissing so when you go downstairs they fool around with the mirror well Jonah does and then all of a sudden they get sucked into this place and it turns out it snow wh [...]

    14. I gave this a four. It is a great, fun book for young girls in 2nd to 3rd grade (maybe first if you have a really advanced reader). My fourth grader read it this year for a state book competition, it was placed on the list they had to get through. I felt it was very superficial reading for fourth grade; however, it captivated her and she wanted to read the rest the series (so, what do I know!). It has lots of cute dialogue, a simply speedy plot, and fun relatable characters.On the flipside, I al [...]

    15. Ooh boy. I think this is a cute, funny concept & I think 3rd-5th-ish graders will really think it's hilarious. For me as an adult audiobook listener it was a little annoyingly repetitive. I think the audiobook narrator does great voice work but I ended up upping the speed just to get through the main character's repetitive complaints faster--which, again, I think the book's target audience would find each repeat increasingly funny. I also liked the new ending to the fairy tale & think it [...]

    16. The book itself is good, kids will enjoy the read. But it's not for me. I cannot stand Abby. There is something very annoying about her that I cannot point out. Half of the book- literally half of the book- is about Abby saying how she feels SO bad and SO sorry for Snow White, and that she doesn't deserve a bad ending because bad ending is for bad peopleose same thoughts every page. Give me a break!

    17. I see how popular this series is with kids in my library so I had to give at least the first one a shot. Now I get it. This is a fast, fun read with contemporary kids being tossed into a fairy tale land and how that impacts the story. And they can't get home until things are set right.Overall, cute and fun. Recommended to fans of fractured fairy tales and a different path to happily ever after. Grades 2 and up.

    18. I teach 5th grade. One of my students was reading this book a couple weeks ago. I noticed the author because I've read some of her novels for young adults and adults. So, I knew I had to read this.This was actually an adorable Audiobook that I listened to while grading/cleaning my classroom today.

    19. This book takes you on an adventure. I loved reading this book. It was amazing! I loved how in this series it changes the original fairy tale. I feel like I am friends with Abby and Jonah.

    20. Ireally like this book im gonna go for the second one so the first is about these girl and a boy that go into their basement and they get sucked in to their mirror amd they go into a fary tail of you want to know what fairy tale than tou better read it.

    21. I think this was a great book! I rated it 5 stars because it was so interesting! I never wanted to put the book down! This book is about a girl named Abby and her brother Jonah who discover a magic mirror in their basement. They realized that the mirror brought them to the fairy tale Snow White after they messed up her story. They tried to fix it, but things kept getting worse and worse! Will they be able to fix her story and save Snow White before it's too late? Read the book and you'll find ou [...]

    22. The very first thing I wrote in my notes for this book was: “Exhausting.” The story is told in the first person, from Abby's perspective, and I kept imagining her saying everything in a breathless and hyper voice. She had very particular ideas about how her world should be, and even went so far as to create a list of everything in Smithville that was uncomfortably not like how things back at her old home in Chicago were. A lot had changed in her life, very quickly, and she wasn't happy about [...]

    23. The story Whatever After Fairest of All, by Sarah Mlynowski, is about a young girl named Abby and her little brother Jonah who loves to explore. The story begins when Jonah wakes up Abby to tell her that their creepy mirror that hangs on one of their basement walls is hissing and turning purple! Abby goes down to the basement to see what really is going on. But, once she gets down to the basement nothing is happening, until Jonah knocks on the mirror’s glass 3 times, the mirror begins to hiss [...]

    24. I listened to the audiobook of this story with my 8.5 year old daughter, and we both enjoyed it.The story is clever - an ordinary 5th grade girl and her younger brother move into a new home and find a mysterious mirror in the basement. When messing around with the mirror late one night, the pair find themselves magically pulled into a new land, one inhabited by a girl named Snow, who lives with seven dwarfs. Yep they land right in the middle of Snow White's story, and for better or worse, they c [...]

    25. I love these novel series from Sarah Mlynowski because she presents a different prospective of the traditional fairy tales. The story starts at the basement of Abby and Jonah, two children who move from Chicago to a small town called Smithville. Little they know that the basement of their new home holds a secret that will embark them in the most amazing adventures. In this first volume, Abby and Jonah help Snow White to have her "happily ever after," only not the way we know it. The author is ab [...]
