When we got this book for review and knew the author was coming to Montreal, we cracked it open, snuggled in bed together (my daughter and I) and began to read. Initially, my son did NOT want to join us in reading what he called "a girly book", but when he heard us giggling he sneaked in to see what the fuss was all about.
Late one night, 10 year-old Abby and her 7 year-old brother Jonah notice something strange about the mirror (left behind by the previous owners) in the basement of their new house. Before they know what's happening it sucks them in and lands them in Snow White's fairy tale. Their presence changes the story, and they race to fix it before their parents wake up (in real life) and find them gone. What ensues is a funny and adventurous story with a twist at the end.
