Here's more about Jenny and the author, Anna Staniszewski... 

(Book 1)
by Anna Staniszewski
Release date: November 1st, 2011
Published by: Sourcebooks Jabberwocky
Genre: Middle Grade Fantasy


You know all those stories that claim fairies cry sparkle tears and elves travel by rainbow?

They're lies. All lies.
I've spent my life as an official adventurer. I travel across enchanted kingdoms saving magical creatures and fighting horrible beasts that most of you think are only myths and legends. I've never had a social life. My friends have all forgotten me. And let's not even talk about trying to do my homework. So - I'm done!!! 
I'm tired and I want to go back to being a normal girl. 

But then along comes "Prince Charming" asking for help, and, well, 
what's a tired girl like me supposed to do?

BOOK TRAILER - My Very UnFairy Tale Life

Fairy tales do come true. 


Jenny the Adventurer is back, and this time she's off to the Land of Tales: 
the crazy place that all fairy tales come from. 
If she can defeat an evil witch and complete three impossible tasks - 
all without getting eaten by blood-thirsty monsters - 
Jenny might finally get some answers about what happened to her parents. 

This is one adventure Jenny can't afford to fail
