I bought it!
Prepare to enter a world of magicians, enchanted forests, talking animals and wicked witches . . .
Here are six magical stories to thrill and enchant you. Watch Blackberry Blue rise from the bramble patch; follow Emeka the pathfinder on his mission to save a lost king; join Princess Desire as she gallops across the Milky Way on her jet-black horse.
These beautifully written and original stories will delight readers of all ages, and the stunning illustrations by Richard Collingridge will take your breath away.
I picked this book out of my choice of Luna’s Picks for this month. I thought it was a stunning read, which I believe will delight many from young children, to teenagers to adults. The magical stories feel incredibly original and the beautiful illustrations just enhance the wonderful stories.
I’m not sure why this little gem hasn’t been more widely read or discussed on the blogosphere. I’m hoping that the stunning cover and intriguing synopsis will encourage more readers to give it a go! It’s something different to the usual fairy-tales out there. I can’t pinpoint a favourite story, because they were all so enjoyable. I loved the vividness of each story. I could picture it so easily in my mind.
The characters are so intriguing and much more interesting than typical fairy-tales and that’s coming from someone who loves a fairy-tale!
