When best friends Valerie and Samantha discover a magic mirror in Val’s 100-year-old barn in southern Minnesota, they eagerly go through it. Immediately they run into the young Snow White, who has just escaped the huntsman. The girls vow to help her find her father, knowing the dangers that await. On their journey, the fun-loving double-trouble duo quickly discover they are caught up in the middle of their favorite fairy tales.
Having the knowledge of the stories as their only weapon, Val and Sam help two other princesses, make a surprising friend and discover they have a fairy godmother of their very own.
Book #2: Into the Forest and Down the Tower was released Feb, 2012
It’s time for Samantha’s summer visit again. Both she and Val are anxious to see if they will take another magical journey through the mirror. After learning of a problem with one of the horses, Odette makes her appearance and tells the girls it’s up to them to help him.
What Charlie needs is something that can only be found in their magical land. It can’t be given to them; they have to solves riddles and discover the answers themselves. A family of elves guides them, but even elf powers are limited when it comes to what stands between the girls and what they seek.
Trolls and unicorns were everything they imagined and more, but rescuing Rapunzel from her tower was an added bonus they never saw coming.
Book 3 was released in November 2012.
Valerie and Samantha are disappointed that their schedules were not allowing them to spend a week together this summer as they have every year since they were young. Fortunately, their parents are able to plan a weekend camping trip towards the end of summer. The girls are happy for the visit, but sad to think they can’t go through the mirror on another adventure this year. They soon discover that the magic is not only within the mirror, but within themselves when they are together. Merlin the magician shows up to take them on their quest to help Arthur find his true identity and his place in Camelot
Book 4 will be released May 2013.

As they wait for him by the river, their world transforms before their eyes. Through the stormy sky, a dragon approaches. With the help of a young man who suddenly appears, they take cover. Discovering a baby dragon hidden in his knapsack and his intentions with it, they know what they are sent here to do. They didn't expect the task at the end of their adventure: to help awaken a sleeping princess.~*~*~*~*~*~*~
Book 5 - scheduled to be released in November, 2013.
Valerie and Samantha’s journey begins before they even make it to Val’s farm this summer. A hot air balloon ride takes them high into the clouds where surprises of Giant proportions await them. With the help of old and new friends, they return to a familiar kingdom and time to once again rescue Snow. This time from the evil queen’s second attempt at killing her.
And just because....
For me, this is the theme song for the series. Had to share :)
