Instead of the usual fairy tale, Abby finds herself in the middle of a book, Alice in Wonderland, with two of her friends, plus bossy Penny (who is definitely not a friend), and in order to get back to reality she must solve a curious riddle, find one of her friends who is missing, and somehow avoid getting her head cut off by the Red Queen--and figure out what she is going to tell the other girls if they ever get out of Wonderland.
Nory, Bax, and their friends are in a special class at Dunwiddle Magic School, a class for children whose magic is unpredictable--and while Nory is finding an outlet for her dritten-self (a combination of a kitten and dragon), in the kittenball team, Bax is worried because all he can do is turn into a rock, and nobody knows why.
The Dunwiddle Magic School (fifth to eighth grade) is intended for children whose magic is "upside-down" like Dory (who turns into a combination of a kitten and dragon) and Pepper (whose uncontrollable "fiercing" terrifies everyone around her)--so the Show Off, where fifth grade students are supposed to showcase their skills, does not really seem like a good idea.
Dory and her friends from Ms. Starr's Upside-Down Magic class set off on an overnight school field trip to Dragon Haven to see, and learn how to care for, dragons--unfortunately there are other students with regular magic there as well, so it is not long before the trouble starts.
Once again Abby and her brother Jonah go through the magic mirror in their basement, and this time they find themselves interfering in the Little Mermaid story--and needing to set things right and make sure everyone has a happy ending.
When Willa's upside-down magic rains, it pours. Clouds form under ceilings. Classrooms get flooded. Umbrellas must always be nearby, just in case Willa has an outburst. Willa hates being the source of such sogginess. Even worse, the more she rains, the badder she feels ... and the badder she feels, the more she rains. All the storminess is threatening to drown her good grades and flood all her friendships. Is there any way to use magic to make the...
On their sixth trip through the magic mirror, Abby and Jonah find themselves in the story of the Snow Queen, a troubled character who chose power over family and friendship, and Abby has free the children the Queen has under her spell--with the help of her new friend, a talking reindeer called Ralph, and a strange girl named Sharon.
In this fourth adventure, Abby, her brother Jonah, and her friend Robin get sucked into the magic mirror and end up in the story of Sleeping Beauty, but when Robin pricks her finger and uses up the sleeping spell, Abby has to come up with a clever solution and a new happily-ever-after.
Abby's first problem is that Jonah has lost all his memories of the magic mirror and their adventures, so when they get sucked through into Beauty and the Beast, he is unaware of the danger, and picks one of the Beast's roses--her second problem is locating Beauty and performing a match-making miracle in order to recover her brother, and still make it back to the real world before their parents miss them.
Abby is worried because Jonah has the fairy Maryrose's memories mixed up with his own, but when they try to talk to her they get sucked through the mirror and find themselves in the story of The Frog Prince.
On their fifth trip through the magic mirror, siblings Abby and Jonah find themselves in the story of Rapunzel--and they set out to free her from her tower, reunite her with her parents, and give the story a completely happy ending.
After her best friend ditches her, fifth-grader Becca, feeling devastated and alone, yearns for people to like her, so when a magical bracelet grants her wish to have loads of friends, she soon discovers having a dream come true is not as simple as it seems.
Abby is feeling slighted by not being chosen festival leader at school, and her brother Jonah thinks that a trip through the magic mirror is just what she needs--but when they find themselves in a strange version of the Princess and the pea, and Abby is tagged as the princess, who will be the next ruler of the Kingdom of Bog (which is very damp and infested with alligators), she is not so much complimented as desperate to find an alternate princess,...
Abby tries to use the magic mirror to get to her friend's house, but she ends up with her brother in the tale of Little Red Riding Hood; where, having accidently knocked out the Huntsman, they set out to save Red (named Lali) and her rather unpleasant grandmother themselves--but end up having to save the wolf (who actually seems a lot nicer then Lali's grandmother), and discovering a surprising secret about their own Nana.
In their ninth journey through the magic mirror Abby and Jonah find themselves in the tale of Aladdin, and after giving the hero of the story a bloody nose in a game of dodge ball, they take his place with the evil magician looking for the magic lamp--and things continue to go down hill from there.
Abby and Jonah take a trip through the magic mirror and finally end up in Jack and the beanstalk (which happens to be Jonah's favorite story ever)--but things soon start to go wrong, and the children have to try and set the tale right, even if it means trading their dog, Prince, for the magic beans, climbing the beanstalk (three times!), and reaching an amicable settlement with the giants (Magnus and Philippa, who are really quite nice), and the sneaky...
