I loved, loved, loved this 2011 Texas Lone Star book. It has magic, mystery, and even a little mayhem. What if all the items from your favorite fairy tales were actually real? In this book, they are!! What if you could get a reply when you asked,
on the wall
who will win
the race this fall?"
That's all it takes! Just ask in rhyme or near rhyme and the mirror will answer...well, sort of answer, you may have to solve a riddle yourself to figure out the answer.
Here is the Scholastic booktrailer for The Grimm Legacy by Polly Shulman.
