1st Twice Upon a Time book out now

Hi all!

Excited to announce that the first book in the re-released Twice upon a Time series is out now. I had so much fun setting them in medieval times and adding a dose of fairy tale magic and humor. It was also a great chance to give the prince a chance to tell his own version of the story. So boys, these books are for you, too!

I hope you enjoy them, and may all YOUR fairy tale wishes come true!

    Even though I haven’t read it or any of the books in the series, it looks amazing!! I am writing a book just for fun, so I started about 3 months ago and im half way through the first draft. In it my main character has a lot of dreams, and in one i made her a kind of adapted version of rapunzel. It was kind of ironical because she has really short coal black hair. i meant it to be a kind of story inside a story. i haven’t decided yet but i want the title of the story to have the word “beeline” in it. What do you think? 🙂
    Anyways your books are AMAZING, chao!

      Love the idea of a book within a book, Great word for the title too! I hope you kept writing, do let me know if you get this! :o) Wendy

    Dear Wendy,
    I really love this book, (as I do with all of your other books,) and I just wanted to say what a great writer you are. One day I dream of writing books just like you. You’ve written so many different books about different characters. You’re truly my #1 author!!

  5. Alex on February 14, 2012 at 6:15 pm

  7. Lydia V. on February 22, 2012 at 10:32 am

    Yayyy!!!! I needed some new reading material! 😀 Lol, and I love the title! Oh, and by the way, how is that one other book you were thinking about writing during the summer, “Pi in the Sky” coming?

    Note from wendy: It’s still coming! Should be next spring. (not this spring) Better finish writing it first though! :o)

    • Lydia V. on March 6, 2012 at 9:04 am

  11. Katie on March 15, 2012 at 1:05 pm

    i am now reading this book but i was wondering when i finish this theres another book in the twice upon a time series and do they have to all go in order like the 11 birthdays series?

    • Wendy Mass on June 4, 2018 at 9:56 am

      Funny you should ask-a new one just came out this very week on Robin Hood and I feel you don’t have to read these in order. Have a great summer ☀️

  12. Eponine on March 20, 2012 at 7:50 pm

    You are my all time favorite author Wendy Mass, I own and have read all of your books! 🙂 I hope to meet you one day! Love this new series! Just finished reading the Rapunzel book and fell in love (as I do in all of your books)

  13. Madison on March 29, 2012 at 3:24 pm

    Love your books I’ve read almost all of them my fav is a mango shaped space because I can really feel how you feels with colors!

  14. Victoria on March 31, 2012 at 6:30 pm

    This book was absolutely amazing! I like this version of Rapunzel better than the Disney movie Tangled. I hope that someone turns this into a movie! I can’t wait for the other books in this series to come out! I love your books!

      i khow right

  16. monica on May 6, 2012 at 8:06 pm

    I love your books, the Twice Upon a Time series! They’re soooo…. funny! In the first book, I loved the little kitty named Sir Kitty. In book two, I think the princes name should have been James. I like how your chapters go back and forth from the princess to the prince. In the first book, my favorite character was the blue creature. (I think his name was Steven?) I can’t wait to read more of your books 🙂

    • Wendy Mass on December 10, 2022 at 11:45 am

      Thanks so much! Reaching back in time to give you a hug! I had so much fun writing those books and like what you picked out! Hopefully you found Robin Hood, which would have come out after you wrote me. xo Wendy

  17. Rachel on May 20, 2012 at 2:12 pm

    I love your books Wendy! I can’t wait until Beauty & The Beast comes out! I’d love if you’d write back sometime.

    NOTE FROM WENDY: HI hon! Beauty and the Beast should be out today! I hope you like it! 🙂

      Hi! Your library should have the new ones, or they can order them for you. Wouldn’t want you to have to read them a 16th time. 😉
