    1. Congratulations to Colette Bezio on her debut fantasy for chapter book readers! If you love fairy tales (and who doesn’t love a good fairy tale?) , you will love this book.

    2. This is for a young person but I wasn't sure of that when I started it. It managed to hold my interest and I would recommend it to my granddaughter.Two very different young girls have adventures as they find out what their future is meant to be in this magical world. Manners and good behavior are promoted throughout the book. A pleasant read with enough magic and suspense to keep someone reading til the end.
