Book: (Woodcutter Sister, #1)
When I read the jacket of the book I immediately wanted it but I had to wait a while before I got it! I was going crazy waiting for it! Once I got the book I realized it had more than one fairytale in it! It was incredible!
Sunday is the seventh of six daughters and has two brothers. She is also the most lonely. She loves to write but the only thing she can write about is the past or else bad things happen. See when she writes the things she writes tend to come true.
One day she is out in the woods by an old fairy well when she meets a frog. Not just a normal frog but one that can talk! She kisses it but nothing happens so she promises everyday she can to come and read to him about her life.
One of her brothers is not really her brother. He is a boy her father found in the woods and took him in. When he makes the mistake of selling a cow for beans she is given a gold bauble from the frog.
The frog is actually a prince (big surprise) and one of the times Sunday kisses him he turns back into Prince Rumbold. But she isn't there to know he's turned back into a man... He goes home and immediately holds many balls in order to meet Sunday and win her heart as a man.
While Sunday inevitably finds out about his secret the prince finds out about the king and a plot. When the king becomes a giant after marrying one of Sunday's sisters it is up to all of them to turn her sister back into a human. She's been turned into a goose!
When all is said and done this is a weirdly cool book! For anyone who loves fairytales this book is a must read!
