Ever After High: The Storybook of Legends

Apple White, Briar Beauty, Raven Queen, Maddie Hatter and the other children of Ever After characters attend Ever After High. In their second year, they sign a pack to fulfill their destiny and replay their parents' stories. Headmaster Grimm has warned them that not signing would cause everyone in their story to "poof" out of existence. So they have to sign, right? But Raven Queen isn't sure she wants to be the Evil Queen like her mother. She wants to make her own choices and decide her own destiny. Is she willing to risk her own existence - and Apple White and Prince Charming's happily-ever-after to get what she wants?

This is a really fun fairy tale story! The ever-after-isms - some of the cheesy and cliche' parts of classic fairy tales - sprinkled throughout the story were sometimes distracting. And sometimes I had to remind myself who some of the secondary characters were supposed to be. But the driving story of fate verses choice was completely captivating! I have already bought a copy for the school library and another for a gift and I can't wait to read what comes next in this series!

4 out of 5 stars
There is no AR rating at this time.

There's a great interactive website for the series here. There are also some FREE teaser stories available for e-readers - just a few pages of a character's story to give you a sense of the character. I read these before the book came out and I enjoyed them. Here are what they look like:
Ever After High: Ashlynn Ella's Story  Ever After High: Briar Beauty's Story  Ever After High: Hunter Huntsman's Story  Ever After High: Raven Queen's Story  Ever After High: Madeline Hatter's Story  Ever After High: Apple White's Story
