Not just for children!
on 27 August 2016
Although recommended for children aged around 11, this book is not just for older children: adults and intelligent younger children will enjoy it too; I know because I am a 54 year old teacher who totally fell in love with the characters in this story and shared it with a group of 7 year olds! We were so impressed that we invited the author, Alicia L Wright, into school and spent a delightful morning asking questions, being inspired and enjoying readings from this intelligent, up and coming young woman.
Being set partly in the real world, Miss Prince is almost totally believable, melding fantasy and realism. The characters are skilfully developed so that the reader really cares. The author's in-depth knowledge of fairy tale history and culture is intricately and cleverly woven into the plot, which incidentally is a real page turner. And what a joy to discover that there are more books to follow in the series, because once you enter this world ( or should I hint "world's" ?!) you really won't want to leave! I can't wait to read the next two books. Please check out these books, don't reserve them solely for children and I promise you a pleasant surprise.
