  • Lovely A mix of Matilda, Harry Potter, and The Phantom Toll Booth Nice, slightly macabe illustrations and several amusing, intertwining stories full of talking bats, blood read petticoats, old crones, and frog princes And in the end, good triumphs over evil, as it should in such a fairy tale


  • A great romping adventure I loved both the Truehearts and the villains, especially the wickedest step sister ever, but it was the chatty bats who kept me laughing the whole way through I now want my own fleet of friendly bats to pop by daily and say Keep it up, kiddo


  • I would not have chosen this book based on the cover art But, hey, the cover art is kind of misleading, so good thing I picked it up This is an entertaining and enjoyable fractured fairytale, not a story about a creepy lady obsessed with death and or skulls.
