What if you are trapped in a fairy tale book? When Kat accidentally rips apart an old childhood picturebook, she´s magically transported into the world of Cinderella - as Katriona, one of the ugly stepsisters! To get back, she´ll have to complete the story, right to the end of happily ever after. But the odds are huge: The other stepsister is movie-star gorgeous, the fairy godmother is nowhere to be found, and the prince isn´t interested in balls at all. Can she ever return to the real world?

Everyone knows how all those fairy tales go. The princess gets beautiful, nabs her prince, falls instantly in love, lives happily ever after and leaves her evil stepsisters in the dust. But what happens when you´re the ugly stepsister and your obnoxiously perfect - read pretty, smart, and, worst of all, sickeningly nice - stepsister is dating the charming, tall, devastatingly handsome guy you´ve had a thing for since you were nine years old? Quirky, artistic and snarky Mattie Lowe does not lead a charmed life. Her mother is constantly belittling her on Skype. Mercedes, the school mean girl, has made it her personal mission to torment Mattie. But worst of all? Her stepsister Ella is the most beautiful, popular girl in school and is dating Mattie´s secret longtime crush, Jake Kingston. Tired of being left out and done with waiting for her own stupid fairy godmother to show up, Mattie decides to change her life. She´ll start by running for senior class president against wildly popular Jake. Ella can keep her Prince Annoying. Mattie´s going to rule the school. And no one, not even a cute and suddenly flirty Jake, is going to stop her. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Amy Melissa Bentley.

Definitely not for baby´s bedtime reading, this hilarious and irreverent take on classic fairytales - think Shrek for grownups - combines humor, mystery, and characters only a fairy godmother could love...When Cinderella is run over by a New Never City bus, her not-so-ugly stepsister, Asia, suspects murder. So she hires RJ, a private eye, to investigate. Little does she know RJ is actually a villain on mental health leave from the Villain´s Union. Cursed with an inability to say no to damsels in distress, RJ travels to the Kingdom of Maldetto, meets the rest of Cinderella´s family--including her fianc, the flamboyant Prince Charming, Cinderella´s crazy stepmother, and a seriously twisted version of Hansel and Gretel--and dodges bullets, explosions, fires, and his own ex-wife to slip his own version of glass handcuffs on the wrists that fit. All while falling for Asia, who has a curse of her own to deal with... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joe Barrett. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/013586/bk_adbl_013586_sample.mp3.
