A must-read middle grades fairytale series

Have you read this charming (and fantasically written) series by E.D. Baker? If not, you really should. I just finished the second book, Unlocking the Spell (Bloomsbury, October 2012) and the series is just as great as I remember. I love Annie even more now.

You can find a complete review of The Wide-Awake Princess HERE.


The Wide-Awake Princess (Wide-Awake Princess, #1)In this new stand-alone fairy tale, Princess Annie is the younger sister to Gwen, the princess destined to be Sleeping Beauty. When Gwennie pricks her finger and the whole castle falls asleep, only Annie is awake, and only Annie—blessed (or cursed?) with being impervious to magic—can venture out beyond the rose-covered hedge for help. She must find Gwen's true love to kiss her awake.

But who is her true love? The irritating Digby? The happy-go-lucky Prince Andreas, who is holding a contest to find his bride? The conniving Clarence, whose sinister motives couldn't possibly spell true love? Joined by one of her father's guards, Liam, who happened to be out of the castle when the sleeping spell struck, Annie travels through a fairy tale land populated with characters both familiar and new as she tries to fix her sister and her family . . . and perhaps even find a true love of her own.


I can't post my review of Unlocking the Spell until closer to the book's release date, but I want to go ahead and say I loved it. The review will post on the release date (October 2, 2012). Until then, you could see my full review from Goodreads.
Unlocking the Spell: A Tale of the Wide-Awake Princess (Wide-Awake Princess, #2)

Now that Annie has helped her sister Gwendolyn (a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty) wake up from the 100-year curse by finding her beloved prince, you would think that things would get back to normal. Think again That beloved prince, Beldegard, is stuck in the body of a bear and the only way that Annie can be free of the two irritating lovebirds is to help--by finding the evil dwarf who cast the spell. Luckily, Annie has assistance from handsome prince Liam, and she has many tricks up her non-magical sleeve . . .
