Goodreads Synopsis:

That’s the way the cookie crumbles!

Yum! Our magic mirror has dropped me and my brother, Jonah, into the story of Hansel and Gretel. If we’re lucky, we may even get to taste the cake-house…

But we didn’t count on accidentally getting trapped. The real Hansel and Gretel are on the run, and Jonah and I have taken their place. And the witch is making a kid casserole for dinner… 

Now we have to:

– Avoid being eaten 

– Pretend our dog is a cat

– Learn to make kale smoothies

– Befriend a talking duck 

Or we may never make it back to our home sweet home!


This story had different twists from the other books in the series. When Abby and Jonah arrive in the fairytale of Hansel and Gretel, they discover that they look exactly like them! That becomes a problem when Hansel and Gretel use the portal to get back home, leaving Abby and Jonah in the fairytale.

I loved these twists! They made the story exciting and fresh. It can get boring if every book in a series follows the same plot. I love how every book in the Whatever After series is completely different!

This is a great book and a great series!
