Magic Warble Blog Tour
The Magic Warbler Author:Victoria Simcox
Dwarfs, gnomes, fairies, talking animals, and an evil queen – all these and more can be found in The Magic Warble, an enchanting tale of adventure and friendship.
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. And 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, as well as an assortment of other characters, Kristina sets off on a perilous journey that not only tests her strength but her heart.
My Thoughts: My eleven year old daughter, Kylee enjoyed reading this book. She could barely put it down, needless to say she finished reading this story in two days. She would've finished the first day she started reading it, but I made her put it down and get some sleep for school the next day. The Author, Victoria Simcox, did a great job writing this book. This story is enchanting and you can easily find yourself in this magical land. I hope that this is the first book in a series to come.
Kylee's Thoughts: I really liked this book. This was fun to read and I liked all the magical creatures in the story. The main character in this story is Kristina,a young unpopular girl. After receiving an unusual Christmas gift, she finds herself in a magical land. Now through her journey to save this magical land from the evil queen, she becomes important and makes many friends. This story was full of adventure and I really liked the lessons in this story of friendship and loyalty. I think that my friends and other children my age would love to read this book.
