Book Review


Abby and Jonah find a magic mirror in their new house. The mirror lands them in the Princess and the Pea story. The people in the castle think that Abby is their missing princess because she cannot sleep on top of all of the mattresses. Abby does not like being in charge, so she holds a contest in order to find the rightful princess. Abby looks for a princess who is brave, smart, and creative. When Abby is about to crown the princess, Prince Micha captures Abby, Jonah, and the contestants because he wants to rule. Using everyone’s talents, Abby and Jonah escape Prince Micha and retake the kingdom. Since Belly, originally the castle’s maid, proves to be the most quick-thinking of the group, everyone decides that she deserves to be the new princess. Now that their mission is complete, Abby and Jonah go back to reality.
