Nikki Maxwell’s favorite fairy tales get dork-tastic twists in the eighth book of the #1 New York Times bestselling Dork Diaries series!

After a bump on the head in gym class on April Fool’s Day, Nikki has a wild dream in which she, her BFFs Chloe and Zoey, her crush Brandon, and mean girl Mackenzie all end up playing the roles of some familiar classic fairy tale characters. Of course, the stories don’t go quite as expected—because they each have a very special Dork Diaries spin!

The Dork Diaries series has more than 13 million copies in print worldwide!

    Definitely my favorite Dork Diaries book. I'm obsessed with the "cursed fairy tale dream" plot and will be forever.

          This is my favorite Dork Diaries book! I hate to admit it, but I feel like in some of the books, Nikki can go through LOTS of drama and negativity. And she takes things, like her mom, dad, and Brianna, for granted. SPOILER: In this book, Brianna is a fairy godmother, and Nikki really appreciates her sister in this book. Read it to find out what happens in Nikki's fairy tale adventure!

            I love this book a lot, I used to read it all the time in school, I really want this book as a gift, I remember reading this one; Skip this review if you want to read for yourselves, Nikki was in the gym, it was dodgeball and she was doing well on dodging- Then, her bully, Mackenzie, hit her in the face with a dodgeball! Nikki didn't notice it coming at her, so when it hit her, She got knocked out! She woke up in a very strange place, She wanted to go home! She now has to go to a palace and find her BFF's who don't even remember her, But look like fairytale characters! That's most of the book, I really like the Dork Diary series,
