First to FTC and GIVEAWAY!!

Sunday, April 17, 2011

This is a first to Fun to Craft and I am excited about it....(plus there is a giveaway too so stick with me!!) I recently was contacted by a sweet gal to review one of her books. Since reading is probably second in my book to crafting, I jumped at the opportunity!

The Magic Warble was written by Victoria Simcox. If any of you are Harry Potter or Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe fans, I think you will probably enjoy this book as well. It has a quirky main character Kristina who is friendless besides her pet rat, Raymond. She is given a Christmas gift by one of her teachers, the Magic Warble. This ends up spurring the biggest adventure of Kristina's life. She is transported into this new world where she is known as the "Chosen One" who must place the Magic Warble on the top of Mount Bernovem. This will give life back to all who live in Bernovem. Of course, this journey does not come without some obstacles in her way. She befriends some fairies, dwarfs and ravens along the way that prove to be most useful in helping her to return peace to their land.

This book was fun and easy to read. Simcox has a great way of depicting characters and places so that you can imagine them as if you were there. It is definitely a must read for fantasy book fans! This would also be a great book for younger readers as well...maybe something fun for one of your children to read with you.
