Cloaked by Alex Flinn
What happens when you take a bunch of fairy tales, mix them up and put them together into a modern day setting? When Alex Flinn does it, it is enchanting, delightful, incredibly funny, romatic and magical. Zis iz vun book zat you vill not vant to put down! Johnny runs his family's shoe repair shop in a fancy hotel. When a famous beautiful princess stays there and has a broken shoe for him to repair, he is drawn into an insane magical mystery when she asks him to search for her brother the prince, who has been turned into a frog by a witch. Using a magical cloak, and later helped by his friend Meg, who runs the coffee counter next to his shoe repair shop, Johnny encounters talking animals who used to be people, fights giants, and learns that many things are not what they seem to be.
