{Seeing Red: Sarah Mlynowski}

{Synopsis} – The New York Times bestselling series!

I really want the magic mirror in my basement to take me to my friend’s sleepover party. But of course, I end up falling into a fairy tale — Little Red Riding Hood!

When my brother, Jonah, and I bump into Little Red in the forest, we try to warn her about the big, bad (and hungry) wolf who’s coming after her and her grandmother.

But at Little Red’s grandma’s house, there’s a BIG surprise in store . . .

Now we have to:
– Avoid becoming a wolf snack
– Hide out in the most epic tree house ever
– Teach Little Red to stand up for herself
– Discover a secret about our own family

Otherwise, we’ll be in a HOWL lot of trouble!

{My thoughts} – This has got to be one of the most interesting Whatever After books I’ve read to date. I have always loved the story of Little Red Riding Hood. When the book begins Abby and Jonah get a visit from their Nana. She is suppose to look after them for the weekend while their parents are our of town. Abby gets invited to a sleepover and ends up with her feelings hurt when Nana says she can’t go. Abby decides that she will try to go around what her Nana has said and try to use MaryRose as a way to try and go to the sleepover. When she rushes down to the basement, Jonah and their dog Prince end up being hot on their heals. It’s one of those situations where what’s going to happen is just going to happen. They end up going through the mirror and land in the story of Little Red Riding Hood.

It takes them a little while to figure out what story they are in but once they do they get right to work. Or at least they attempt to by trying to come up with a reasonable plan for the situation. They end up with a plan and as they are following through with it they get a surprise. I really liked this surprise in the book and I am sure that other readers will as well. I am truly looking forward to seeing where the series is going after this point! It’s just, it’s incredible so far.

I really enjoy reading these books and I know that children that enjoy books about adventures and fairytales will as well. I highly recommend them if you have children that enjoy one of both. I had the pleasure of reading this book out loud to my two year old daughter and she sat on my lap listening to nearly the entire book without a peep. Even though there were no words she sat there while we rocked and read. I think that any child can learn to enjoy a good story if you start them out young. I am truly hoping that my younger two will become book lovers like myself.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
