Ebook Giveaway: The Magic Warble by Victoria Simcox

Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget. 
~G Randolf~

My very closed friends know that no matter how fast the years go by, my heart still longs for those beautiful fairytales that we loved as children. I enjoy redescovering old stories or exploring new ones because all of them have something special to share and hold the gates to some wonderful worlds waiting to be discovered. I love fairytales not only because they fill my need for fantasy, but also because they help us preserve some important values, such as friendship, trust and self-confidence.

For the spotlight today, we have an enchanting story- for middle-aged children, but also for the grown-ups who like to escape from reality from time to time! 

Let's see what it is about!

The Magic Warble by Victoria Simcox

The Magic Warble
by Victoria Simcox

Twelve-year-old Kristina Kingsly feels like the most unpopular girl in her school. The kids all tease her, and she never seems to fit in.

But when Kristina receives an unusual Christmas gift, she suddenly finds herself magically transported to the land of Bernovem, home of dwarfs, gnomes, fairies, talking animals and the evil Queen Sentiz. In Bernovem, Kristina not only fits in, she's honored as "the chosen one," the only one who can release the land from Queen Sentiz's control.

But it's not as simple as it seems. To save Bernovem, she must place the gift she was given, the famous "Magic Warble," in its final resting place. She must travel through the deep forest, climb a treacherous mountain, and risk capture by the queen's "zelbocks" before she reaches her destination.

Guided by her new fairy friends, Clover and Looper and by Prince Werrien, a teenage boy, and an assortment of other characters, Kristina sets off on a perilous journey that not only tests her strength but her heart.

The book is 267 pages long with 1-2 pictures per chapter. 

It is listed a middle-grade read, ages 9-13.
