trouble with toads
I LOVE fairy tales!

And when you take a new fairy tale...but weave in old fairy tales it is OH. SO. GOOD!

This book was SO CUTE!
FUN FUN story line!
Lots of mischief, lots of trouble, lots of sisterly stuff...like fighting, forgiving, helping and loving.

Bettony just want to be pretty...like any ugly step-sister...

But when she turns to her grandmother who lives in a cottage and bakes gingerbread her life twists into a magical tale.

Then when she accidentally turns her sister into a toad she must seek the help of her magic mirror and find the witch that took her families' magic.

Can she have her 'happily ever after' and can she do it before her mother finds out?

About the Author
Danyelle Leafty writes upper MG and YA fantasy, and is the author of THE FAIRY GODMOTHER DILEMMA series. Danyelle has always loved fairy tales, and prefers stories where someone gets eaten, or at the very least, transmogrified.

Much of her inspiration has come from fairy tales, because as G.K. Chesterton so aptly states, "Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten." In her spare time, she collects dragons, talking frogs, and fairy godmothers. She also collects books, and one day hopes to make a house out of them. She enjoys learning languages, fiddling with her harp, and perfecting the fine art of mothering. (It's a lot like trying to herd chickens during a lightning storm while a goat stampede is going on.)

 One of her heroes is Albert Einstein, particularly for the following quote: "Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The most important thing is not to stop questioning."
