Greeking Out of Whatever After


Greek myths and fractured fairy tales have never been so much fun! Sarah Mlynowski's popular Whatever After tales use a mirror to transport two kids into fairy tales and are being transformed into graphic novels. Kenny Curtis and Jillian Hughes have drawn from their successful podcast to create humorous, playful retellings of Greek myths.
