GIVE-AWAY: Win a copy of The Magic Warble

When I finished reading The Magic Warble I thought what exciting adventure. Will be fun to see a movie of it! I also thought about giving the book to one of my friends’ daughter who is ten years old and loves reading. Although I am in my 30s, the book took me back in time, into an extraordinary world my young mind used to create to when the bullying of every day school life was too much. PA185404

The story is about twelve-year-old Kristina Kingsly. At school she is bullied by two cousins, Graham and Hester. When Davina, Kristina’s fourteen –year-old sitter, sits her she tries to find something to snitch on Kristina. The only way of escape for Kristina are reading books, drawing and playing with her pet rat, Raymond.

But the last day of school before Christmas holiday break Kristina receives a gift from her favourite teacher. A hatbox in which she finds a tarnished ball. That night the ball magically transports her into the land of Bernovem, a world different from hers. This is a land of dwarfs, gnomes, fairies, talking animals and the wicked Queen Sentiz.

In Bernovem Kristina fits in, she is also the ‘chosen one’, the person who has to save the land from Queen Sentiz, by placing the magical ball, which in Bernovem is known as the Magic Warble, in its final resting place. Kristina has to travel through deep forest, climb snowy mountains, and fight against the queen’s ‘zealocks’ which try to stop her before she reaches her destination. However, to succeed in her mission Kristina is guided by her new fairy friends Clover and Looper, Prince Werrien, a thirteen year-old boy who is the true prince to the throne.  

I don’t want to tell you the whole story, but let me tell you I enjoyed reading The Magic Warble  because it gives the possibility to an ordinary girl to help save a land and give peace and harmony back to its people. I believe one of the messages of the book is to learn to be nice to one another. And also every child is special.

I am very happy to let you know that Victoria has offered to giveaway a signed copy of The Magic Warble to one of my readers living in US! This could be a great Christmas gift for children between ages 9-13. Or you can use it as bed time story for your little ones. The book is 267 pgs long with 1-2 pictures per chapter. I received my free copy with a bookmark and wristband.
