Review by: Sheila Deeth on March 18, 2013 :
A nicely different take on a familiar fairy tale, with a truly scary premise, Nana's Quest by Shelly Goodman Wright has two teens looking after their ailing grandmother, just for an hour or so while Mom goes shopping. When Nana's spirits seem down, Stacey digs out a favorite book to read to her. But Nana can’t stay awake, and suddenly the story vanishes.

Soon the teens are on a curious adventure, trekking through the forest to find the missing book before its owner comes to collect on some long-forgotten promise. There are scares both natural and supernatural waiting there for them, and hints of a familiar fairy story enticing the reader to wonder what might happen next.

A fun, scary children’s tale, dark as the original fairy tales were, this is such an enjoyable short read that the occasional editing and logic issues really won't distract you or your kids.
