5.0 out of 5 stars A Gripping Fireside Tale, 14 Sep 2012
This review is from: Fire Spell (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This delightful fantasy has just about everything that the younger reader
might require to stay glued to the page from beginning to end. Laura Amy
Schlitz's inventive and atmospheric narrative, with its shades of Carlo
Collodi's 1863 novel 'Pinocchio', deserves to become a children's classic
with its tangled tale of friendship, good versus evil and all manner of
deviously supernatural shenanigans. A darkly imaginative tour de force.

The characters are uniformly well-drawn. Clara, a worthy young heroine;
Grissini, a deliciously evil puppeteer; Cassandra, a powerful but ailing
witch and a rich cast of colourful auxiliary players all come to life in the
author's beautifully detailed prose. A gripping story for a cold Winter's night.

Highly Recommended.
