Author(s): Alethea Kontis
Rough-and-tumble Saturday Woodcutter thinks she's the only one of her sisters without any magic—until the day she accidentally conjures an ocean in the backyard. With her sword in tow, Saturday sets sail on a pirate ship, only to find herself kidnapped and whisked off to the top of the world. Is Saturday powerful enough to kill the mountain witch who holds her captive and save the world from sure destruction? And, as she wonders grumpily, "Did romance have to be part of the adventure?" As in Enchanted, readers will revel in the fragments of fairy tales that embellish this action-packed story of adventure and, yes, romance.
"Mightily entertaining . . . whether Kontis tells the tales of other Woodcutter children or not, readers will await her next with joyful anticipation." "Kirkus Reviews ""Fans of the television show "Once Upon a Time" will definitely enjoy this fractured fairy tale that references many well-known stories." "School Library Journal""
