Guest blog post by Sarah Mlynowski, bestselling author of the Whatever After series
I am so excited to share the cover for Spill the Beans, the thirteenth book in my Whatever After series, coming out April 2019. Lucky number thirteen!
In the Whatever After books, Abby and her brother Jonah go through a magic mirror in their basement and fall into different fairy tales. The siblings mess up the stories (mostly by accident, but sometimes on purpose), and then have to find new happy endings for the characters.
So far, Abby and Jonah have visited the stories of Snow White, Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, Hansel and Gretel and many more. They never know where the mirror will take them. But each time Jonah has wished and hoped: Will they end up in the story of Jack and the Beanstalk? It’s Jonah’s favorite fairy-tale, and Jack is his hero! How cool would it be to meet him? But not once has the mirror taken them to Jack and the Beanstalk. . .
In this book, the siblings discover that they are for real, no kidding, 100% truly in the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. Hurrah! Jonah should be thrilled! Right?
But instead of jumping for joy, Jonah is terrified. Because in the original fairy-tale, Jack has a happy ending. He climbs his magic beanstalk, gets a lot of gold, and all his dreams come true. Jonah knows what happens when he and his sister land in a story. They for real, no kidding, 100% always ALWAYS mess things up...and Jonah does not want to mess up anything for Jack. But will he? To find out what happens, you’ll have to read the book!
I am so excited that Abby and Jonah finally get to visit Jack and the Beanstalk. And I love the book’s cover: we see Abby climbing the beanstalk, and of course Jonah gets featured, too. After all, it’s his favorite story. Let’s just hope he doesn’t regret that his wish finally came true…
Whatever After #13: Spill the Beans comes out April 30, 2019!
