Dream On Cold as Ice

Bad Hair Day is the fifth book in the Whatever After series, written by Sarah Mlynowski. It was published in April 29, 2014.


When my brother and I end up in the story of Rapunzel, we can’t resist climbing her hair. But her smooth locks suddenly look like they’ve been attacked by a cheese grater. Maybe a trim will help…Snip, snip, SNIP. Oops! Now Rapunzel’s hair is too short and we’re trapped!

So we have to:

  • Find the tower’s secret door
  • Avoid getting swallowed by a giant spider
  • Locate Pickles (aka the prince)
  • Reunite Rapunzel with her parents

If we don’t untangle this knotty tale soon, we could be stuck in this mess for good!
