Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

Girl power, stereotype-busting, and diversity rule the day as three would-be princesses from our world venture into the fairy tale world in this lively fantasy. As Mihi Ever After unfolds, they find the world of happily-ever-after isn't quite what they dreamed of, and it's actually more about sticking to the script than living your dreams. The three friends are hard-pressed to save themselves and also rescue Sleeping Beauty from a fate she doesn't want one bit, so there's never a dull moment. Lots of relatable ones, though, as good intentions sometimes turn out badly, things go wrong, amends must be made, and forgiveness given -- especially since Book 2 is waiting in the wings.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
