MMGM: Half Upon a Time

There’s plenty of action in this week’s Operation Story Share to keep you turning the pages. Not to mention all the crazy fairy tale characters that kept my whiskers twitching with amusement. I’m talking about Half Upon a Time by James Riley.

Half Upon a Time

Check out the inside cover blurb:

Life’s no fairy tale for Jack.

After all, his father’s been missing ever since that incident with the beanstalk and the giant, and his grandfather keeps pushing him to get out and find a princess to rescue. Who’d want to rescue a snobby, entitled princess anyway? Especially one who falls out of the sky wearing a shirt that says PUNK PRINCESS and still denies she’s royalty. In fact, May doesn’t even believe in magic. Yeah, what’s that about?

May does need help, though—a huntsman is chasing her, her grandmother has been kidnapped, and Jack thinks it’s all because of the Wicked Queen . . . mostly because May’s grandmother just might be the long-lost Snow White.

Jack and May’s thrillingly hilarious adventure combines all the classic stories—fractured as a broken magic mirror—into one epic novel for the ages.

See? What did I tell you? Like I said, this book is funny and full of adventure and even has a little rivalry for May’s affections going on between Jack and a prince named Phillip.

And if you like the first book, you’re in luck. James Riley has written two more: Twice Upon a Time and Once Upon the End. What are you waiting for? Get reading!
