Ever After High ... The Storybook of LegendsOne of my favorite book series is the Ever After High series. I think it is a good book for anyone my age. The first book in the series is The Storybook of Legends and I LOVED it!!! I had a hard time putting it down each night. I wanted to keep reading even though I needed to be getting my sleep for the next school day. It was a resort-to-flashlight-under-the-covers kind of reading.
The Storybook of Legends taught a good lesson. It made me want to "write my own story" and not worry so much about what others think I should be doing. After reading this book you will realize that following the crowd is not the way to go!
And ... you don't need to be a kid to enjoy this novel. My Mom and I read it together and she even liked it. Any age will love these books. I strongly suggest reading out loud with your mom or anyone else who wants to join in the fun. It made reading the book even better.
My favorite character in the book is Madeline Hatter (the daughter of the Mad Hatter). I like her because Madeline doesn't care what other people think of her. She is a loyal friend, she's carefree, she loves to have fun, she's playful, and has a good personality. She also walks to the beat of her own drum. All of the students in the story are children of famous fairy tale characters. The adults in the story are also based off of fairy tales. I loved meeting new people throughout the pages of the book and trying to figure out who's kids they were.
There is also a little side story twist that I thought was cute! An unexpected romance at Ever After High between Ashlynn Ella (the daughter of Cinderella) and Hunter Huntsman (the son of the Huntsman in Snow White). You don't find out too much about their story but I'm hoping to find out more in the following book.
Oh ... I almost forgot ... not only are the books great, but there are other things that go along with the books! They have clothing ...
... and what I love ... DOLLS!
And I just found out ... they have Halloween costumes!!!
How's that for "Three Wishes"?!! I have a few more things to add to my Christmas list!
The Storybook Of Legends is absolutely charming! I was surprised with how fun the plot was and how much I liked the characters. Will they choose to keep the story they were born to do or will they choose their own destiny? Find out everything in the Ever After High Series!
Here is more about the book The Storybook Of Legends:
"At Ever After High, an enchanting boarding school, the children of fairy tale legends prepare themselves to fulfill their destinies as the next generation of Snow Whites, Prince Charmings and Evil Queens...whether they want to or not. Each year on Legacy Day, students sign the Storybook of Legends to seal their scripted fates. For generations, the Village of Book End has whispered that refusing to sign means The End-both for a story and for a life.
As the daughter of the Evil Queen, Raven Queen's destiny is to follow in her mother's wicked footsteps, but evil is so not Raven's style. She's starting to wonder, what if she rewrote her own story? The royal Apple White, daughter of the Fairest of Them All, has a happy ever after planned for herself, but it depends upon Raven feeding her a poison apple in their future.
What if Raven doesn't sign the Storybook of Legends? It could mean a happily never after for them both."
