Sink or Swim by Sarah Mlynowski

Cover image for Sink or swimHere is book 3 in the Whatever After series.  In this one Abby and Jonah travel through the magic mirror to the island of Mustard just as the Little Mermaid, Lana, is saving prince Mortimer from the shipwreck.  The arrival of the kids scares Lana away before Prince Mortimer wakes up so he doesn't get a chance to meet her.  Now the kids have a dilemma.  Do they want to fix Lana's story, knowing how it originally ends (not they Disney ending, but the H. C. Anderson depressing ending)?  This is about like the other Whatever After books; a little humor, a little moralizing and a happily-ever-after ending that is different from the original fairy tale. It is cute, and it gave me something simple but mildly entertaining to listen to while I did a big weeding project today.  (165 p)
