Meet the upside-down fairy-tale princess! Raven Perilous is not nice because nice princesses get locked in towers. When Prince Charming shows up, Raven—who is not in distress—decides to show him who’s boss. This enchanting adventure, filled with magic forests and mystical creatures, will captivate fans of fairy tales everywhere!
This book is an absolute joy. I loved Raven instantly. Her humor and disdain for being a princess is what kept me reading eagerly. I loved how the author incorporated many different fairytales in this enjoyable story. I also loved the idea of Raven's parents and how they came to our world. Raven is a twin, and he, Edgar, is an evil sorcerer. He was also a favorite character. Raven's only friend is Amy (even though everyone loves her and thinks she's darling because she's a princess, which she can't stand). But, she has secrets of her own. Raven's world get turned even more upside down when Eric Charming comes to her school. Together they are forced on a quest that is full of adventure and fun.
4 out of 5 stars. This is Janice's first book and I am eagerly waiting to see if there will be second one. This book is a great middle grade fantasy that is just as enjoyable for adults as kids.
