So who out there is familiar with the First Look Program by Harper Collins? It doesn't exist anymore but is was my original first stop when I began reviewing books. They were the ones who also helped me to find my way to Goodreads. Now, HarperCollins has changed it into a Browse Inside feature, which I am kinda liking. It's a nice way of seeing whether a book is a match for you or not. This was the book on offer at the moment. The first six chapters are available to read and preview. Here's the link if you want to check it out. http://browseinside.harpercollinschildrens.com/index.aspx?isbn13=9780062104892
I'm not going to go into much detail about what it's about, I think the name kinda says it all. I for one really love the cover. I saw an interview with Soman Chainani, who said he grew up watching Disney movies and I'm paraphrasing when I say that it had an influence on him writing this story. I can really see that reflected in the cover art and I'm not just saying that cause of the castles in the background (but the one on the left does make me think of Cinderella). Overall, I think this book will be popular with middle graders who enjoy fairy-tale retellings.
