"Out of the Wild" by Sarah Beth Durst (Children's Fantasy)

Out of the Wild by Sarah Beth Durst is a children’s book about Fairy Tale characters escaping “the Wild” and living under cover in the real world. This has lots of adventure and is totally silly. It reminded me of a cartoon. However, Julie shows persistence in solving the world’s problem and manages to arrive at a sort of compromise leading to a happy ever after ending.

 I had to remind myself that this is a children’s book because the whole plot is so silly. It has some funny parts and emphasizes the importance of being yourself. I liked Julie’s father the best in this. This is extremely whimsical so didn’t really appeal to me, but young children may find it very amusing and entertaining. I almost quit on this one but figured I might as well finish it since it would go quickly because it is a kid's book.

Teaser from page 29: “We’re going to Grandma’s motel,” Julie said. She wondered if this was going to be a problem. In their fairy tale, Dad and Grandma weren’t exactly friends. “You knew her as Dame Gothel, Rapunzel’s witch. But don’t worry—she’s not evil anymore.”
