bPraise for iThe Magic Mirror/i (Once Upon a Fairy Tale #1):/b
"Staniszewski creates a tense mystery akin to the 'Encyclopedia Brown' series... Pamintuan's illustrations have an animated style that is engaging without overwhelming the text. VERDICT A series debut that... will engage readers with its fantastical mystery and honest depictions of relationships with family and friends." -- iSchool Library Journal/i
