Make A Wish!

Twins Alex and Connor always looked forward to visits from their grandmother. Especially since their dad died. Then for their 12th birthday, Grandmother gives them an old book of fairy tales that had been in their family for generations. And it doesn't take long for them to realize the book is magical. Soon, the twins find themselves tumbling into the pages, into The Land of Stories. They learn the only way they can get home is by performing the rare and difficult Wishing Spell. For this spell, they must collect iconic items from various fairy tales (Cinderella's Glass Slipper, Red Riding Hood's basket, The Little Mermaid's knife, etc.). So they embark on a dangerous and magical scavenger hunt. But the Evil Queen from Snow White fame also seeks to work the Wishing Spell. And only one of them can use it.

This one is exciting and lots of fun. A tad predictable at times (I figured out who Froggy was early on). And, yes, it's sometimes cheesy (in a good way). But still very much worth reading. So if you're in the mood for an awesome fantasy, this one's for you! --AJB

p.s. This one's free of bad language, kissing, and other things that mark a book better suited for older teens. So it's appropriate for even younger readers :)
