This fractured fairytale is fun for those who know the originals. There are several nods to the classics that made me grin. I liked Paulina as a protagonist; her resourcefulness was pretty entertaining.
Unfortunately, most of the other characters came off as mean. It serves the story well, but it would be nice to have one other character we liked here.
Still, this is a book that kids and adults will certainly enjoy.

My 8-year-old daughter gets all of the references to the other fairy tales and the accidental naming of "Pete's . . . ah" and enjoys the story. My 4-year-old daughter, who doesn't catch all of the amusing nuances, REALLY enjoys the story. It's been her favorite bedtime book to read every night for the past week, since we borrowed it from the library. It's like a Pixar animated film: the kids miss the adult humor, but everyone enjoys the movie.
