Fairy tales do come true. Unfortunately.
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.
My Epic Fairy Tale Fail by Anna Staniszewski is the second book in My Very Unfairy Tale Life series. It features the young adventurer Jenny, who has quite an extraordinary job. She's accompanied on her journeys by her guide, Anthony. Who also happens to be a candy-addicted gnome. In this book Jenny's guest takes her to a place where adventurers are not wanted. In fact they're loathed. However this time she is not going alone. She has her two besties, Melissa and Trish, with her. However this quest leads her down a path that can lead her to her missing parents. So, of course, she has to accept this mission.
My Very Unfairy Tale Life is a great series for middle graders. Jenny travels mystical realms solving problems for fairy tale creatures. She leads a pretty fantastic life, although it's not very glamorous. This is a great coming of age series for young girls. Through her travels Jenny learns all sorts of life lessons as well as discovering who she is. It's also a pretty clean series as well. For a parent, that's a dream come true. This is a book that will appeal to all ages.
