Dork Diaries - Once Upon A Dork Review

By Rachel Renee Russell

Once Upon A Dork
We were given a chance to read and review the new edition to the Dork Diaries children's book series Once Upon A Dork. My daughter Eleesha loves to read this style of kids comedy/diary books and had recently reviewed Dork Diaries Drama Queen and loved it. As always she was over the moon when it arrived.
The book was written by Rachel Renee Russell a mother and attorney from northern Virginia. The stories a based around her daughters and her own experiences at middle school. You can find out more about the Dork diaries book series and Rachel here at the Dork diaries website or on the Facebook page 


Mirror mirror on the wall, who is
the dorkiest princess of them all?
Sleeping Beauty?
Nikki Maxwell?
After a bump on the head , Nikki has a wild
dream in which she, her BFFS Chloe and
Zoey, her crush Brandon, and mean girl
Mackenzie are all part of well-known fairy
tales...with a very special dorky twist!
Will Nikki find her happily ever
after, or will it be an epic fairy
fail for this dorkella?

Our Thoughts


We loved the spin Once Upon A Dork brings to the Dork Diaries series this time. We fond the book really very funny and a complete pleasure to read. Our favourite character was Nikki we felt sorry for her when she was lost and alone in the forest. We have really enjoyed having all the fairy-tale characters in Nikki's dream after the football hit her on the head.
We found the book very easy to read through and Eleesha thoroughly enjoyed it. I would happily recommend this book to any one who loves the humorous  diary style books, fairy-tale fans and obviously Dork Diary fans of course!
