Jenny the Adventurer is back, and this time she’s off to the Land of Tales: the crazy place that all fairy tales come from. If she can defeat an evil witch and complete three impossible tasks–all without getting eaten by blood-thirsty monsters–Jenny might finally get some answers about what happened to her parents. This is one adventure Jenny can’t afford to fail.

What People Are Saying:

“Flippant fantasy fun…Staniszewski again keeps her tone light and frothy with plenty of wry humor…Middle school friendships offer a nice theme, as does Jenny’s casual acceptance of her fantasy life. The humor is balanced with a poignant subplot when Jenny learns that her long-lost parents disappeared from this very place, leading her to believe that she might be able to find them.”–Kirkus

“A light-hearted romp through fairy-tale tropes, this will be a hit among youngsters past the Disney-princess stage who still secretly cling to the hope that mermaids and fairies exist.”–The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (See the full review here.)
