Gr 3-5-In the fourth title of the "Fairy Tale Reform School" series, a feisty heroine is teacher and student as she learns about trust, betrayal, and being true to herself. Gilly Cobbler embarks on a quest to rescue her sister Anna who has joined Rumplestiltskin and his malevolent Stiltskin Squad. Uncertain if Anna switched her allegiance from good to evil willingly, Gilly and her friends (fairies, ogres, and magic pets) are not content to just attend classes at Enchantasia's school for the not-quite-royal while family members continue to go missing. The school's newest student, Jack (of beanstalk fame), becomes a reluctant ally for Gilly after his mother and cow's mysterious abduction has left him to fend for himself. New teachers Beauty and the Beast have undisclosed reasons for protecting their daughter and preventing the student body from opening cursed library books and falling under Rump's wicked influence. The author's lively, fast-paced style works well for readers eager to jump right into the action. Characters develop through memorable episodes of magical transformation and relatable school-kid drama. Plotlines have satisfying yet unpredictable resolutions that leave room for another installment. Clever Pegasus Post letters and Happily Ever After Scrolls (news updates) between chapters whimsically add background information about the school and its unique happenings. VERDICT This entertaining series will satiate readers for whom Disney's "Descendants" is a year or two out of reach.-Jane Miller, Nashville Public Library © Copyright 2018.
