Once upon a time (or last Thursday, as it's known in this matrix) everything was fine: Humpty Dumpty sat on his wall, Jack and Jill went about their lawful business, the Big Bad Wolf did what big bad wolves do, and the wicked queen plotted murder most foul.

But the humans hacked, cried havoc, shut down the wicked queen's system (mirrors 3.1) and corrupted her database - and suddenly everything was not fine at all. But at least we know that they'll all live happily ever after. Don't we?

Computers and fairy tales collide to hilarious effect in the latest sparkling cocktail of mayhem, wit and wonder from the master of comic fantasy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snow White and the Seven Samurai Snow White and the Seven Samurai happens to be one of the most imaginative and witty tales of fantasy intermingled with reality that I have come across. The three little pigs who gang up on each other was a surprising twist that is unparalleled by every other author that I have ever read, but Holt comes up with endless parodies of everyday life. Anyone who can mix computers and fairy tales in such a convincing manner deserves to be put on a pedestal and given an award. To think that the ruler of the fairy tale realm controlled all by using her computer system (Mirrors 3.1), is hilarious and ingenious. If you don't read any other book this year, at least make sure to check this one out!
