    Velho ja leijona (tekijä: C. S. Lewis) (JenniferRobb)
    JenniferRobb: Both books have children passing through a portal into a different world. Mlynowski's is the fairy tale world of Snow White; Lewis's is Narnia and is a Christian allegory.

    The Thursday Next Chronicles I-III (tekijä: Jasper Fforde) (JenniferRobb)
    JenniferRobb: Both series involve people being able to travel between the real world and the world of books. (Children in Mlynowski's series and Thursday Next in Fforde's). Fforde does address what happens to the stories that are changed in the fictional world when someone in the real world then reads them. That's not something Mlynowski touched on in this book.… (lisätietoja)

    Inkheart / Inkspell / Inkdeath (tekijä: Cornelia Funke) (JenniferRobb)
    JenniferRobb: The movie based on Funke's series is much more concise than the books--basic premise is that there are people who when they read certain books out loud can transfer characters from the book to the real world or put people from the real world into the book. Mlynowski's series uses a mirror to put people from the real world into a fairy tale. Not sure yet if people from the fairy tale world can also go through the mirror. But the idea is similar.… (lisätietoja)

{My Thoughts} – Abby and Jonah are two very interesting, yet charming siblings. They have a wonderful dynamic that helps to make them out to be funny and attention grabbing. This story begins with Jonah waking Abby in the middle of the night complaining that the mirror in the basement is making noises and changing colors. She although she is scared goes with him o the basement to investigate his claims. It turns out that the mirror is magic and it transports them into another world.

The mirror seemingly takes them and drops them smack dab in the middle of Snow White’s fairy tale. If you know me, you know I enjoy reading fairy tale retellings and this book is one of the better have have come across for children. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series and seeing the personality of the children develope throughout the stories. I am also interested in seeing how creative she gets with re-writing the stories. This first one was a job well done, I hope that the author can continue to exceed my expectations in future books.

I really enjoyed reading this book and now I understand why my daughter loves this series so much. In fact my daughter is currently reading book five and I am playing catch up, she started them in school last year. It is really hard finding books for her to read that she is interested in because she struggles with reading, but she really gets into these books and enjoys them and as long as we can keep finding books that hold her interest I am going to keep buying them, reviewing them and sharing them with others. I figure if my kid can enjoy it, I am sure some other parents will be grateful to know that they exist in case they want to try them with their kid. I highly recommend for the reluctant reader. ( )

Okay, so, fair warning, I am much older than the age range for which this book was written, and perhaps that explains why I wasn't very enchanted with the book itself. Though the back cover blurb does make it sound interesting.

I sympathize with Abby about change, but I found her a bit annoying also.

In one sense, the idea reminds me a bit of C.S. Lewis's "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe" (minus the Christian allegory part). There's a portal (in this case a mirror) that transports children elsewhere (in this case, into Snow White's story). But changing the story by warning Snow about the poisoned apple means that Snow doesn't get her "happily ever after". The author doesn't address what happens to the fairy tales in our world if Snow White's story changes--perhaps because all the action takes place between midnight and 6 AM--though with all the time zones, it should be possible that someone, somewhere in the world could be reading the story of Snow White during that time.

A sparkly fractured version of Snow White. A fun read for a tween, but without the darkness of the original fairy tale, it has no emotional impact. ( )

A magic mirror, a slightly bossy sister and her inquisitive 7-year-old brother captivate in this rollicking remake of a classic fairy tale. ... Abby’s orderly world is overturned when her brother Jonah accidentally awakens the eerie mirror in the basement of their new home. Suddenly, they find themselves in Snow White’s world—just in time to valiantly foil the evil queen’s poisoned-apple plot. This is cause for celebration until they realize that now “Snow” no longer requires rescuing by the prince. Comical misadventures ensue as the pragmatic Abby and exuberant Jonah attempt to resolve their dilemma, with many surprises along the way. Mlynowski blends elements from the traditional tale with the Disney movie version and adds her own modern twist. The result is an uproariously funny read. ... the author leaves enough beguiling mysteries to keep readers eagerly anticipating the siblings' next adventure. (Fantasy. 9-12)

This delightful kickoff to the Whatever After series demonstrates Mlynowski’s... prowess at writing for middle-graders. In the cleverly tangled and quite funny story, 10-year-old Abby and her younger brother, Jonah... end up preventing Snow White from eating the apple the woman offers her. ... Mlynowski’s story is studded with comical pratfalls, witty quips, and one-liners.... The testy but devoted relationship between Abby and Jonah will resonate with readers, Mlynowski’s twists on the original story entertain, and Abby’s exclamatory narration grabs attention from the start. The ending hints at another trip through the basement mirror—a promising prospect. Ages 8–12.
Ten-year-old Abby has just moved to Smithville with her parents and younger brother Jonah.... One night, the two siblings knock on the creepy mirror in the basement and are instantly sucked into a fairytale land. ... They find themselves at the cottage where Snow White is living with the Seven Dwarfs, just as the evil stepmother in disguise is offering up a red apple to eat. They intervene and save Snow White from being poisoned! Initially they are pleased about this, but soon realize that they have interfered with Snow’s future and she won’t meet her Prince Charming. They decide to stay with Snow until they can set things right and ensure she lives happily ever after.... It’s an amusing and easy read with lots of action. ... The tale ends in such a way that the reader can be sure of more humorous exploits to come.
