The main characters of this book, Mags and Gillian were both very quirky and odd. There were times when I found them frustrating, but they were more likeable than unlikeable. The narration of the book was mostly from Mags with Gillian interjection occasionally. In Mags, the author captured the voice of a twelve-year-old. Sure, the run-on sentences got annoying, but it felt the way a twelve-year-old would really write. Overall it was a good book.

Seven "new" Fairy Tales by seven well known Irish Children's Book writers. The stories use all of the conceits of fantasy: talking animals, ogres, Leprechauns and/or other beings who's existence has yet to be proven and mix in old themes with more modern outcomes. For example, in "The Princess and the Other Frog" Princess Finola meets the Big Bad Wolf while walking to The Other Side wearing her red silk cape. In this telling of the story, Princess Finola is trying to protect her basket from an Ogre and the Big Bad Wolf, which she thinks is filled with "crisps, a chocolate bar and something fizzy" but instead really contains oyster sandwiches. In the end her father kisses the frog (names Hildegard) and the father promises to kiss it (it has been stomped on by the Ogre) and in the end it is suggested that the King, Princess Finola's father falls in love with Hildegard because after he kissed the frog "...Let's just say the queen was not pleased."… (mer)
