Dream On

Dream On 
(Whatever After #4)
By Sarah Mlynowski
Scholastic, 2014. Ficton. 157 p.

Abby is having her first sleep over party in her new home with her new best friend, Robin. Robin inadvertently triggers the magic mirror in Abby's basement and is transported into the story of Sleeping Beauty where she accidentally pricks herself on the evil fairy's spindle and falls asleep.  Abby and her brother, Jonah, must then find a way to wake Robin up and help the real princess fall asleep so she can be rescued by a prince and fulfill her destiny.  It is not an easy task, especially with 13 hard-to-please fairies involved.  This is the fourth in the popular "Whatever After" series.  Abby and Jonah are plucky and endearing characters, and Mlynowski always seems to work in a simple life lesson into each story. This is a great choice for a child who is ready to move on from the "Magic Tree House" series.
