Dragon Post

I've mentioned before how much I loved stories about dragons as a child, (ok, both my mum and I still do).

The Restless Girls

When I was younger, Twelve Dancing Princesses was one of my favourite stories. Something about the midnight trips out, the worn out shoes, the boats to magical forests and dancing maybe.

The Lost Magician

I was offered a copy of The Lost Magician for review (thanks to Hachette Kids) and how could I resist with a cover like that?! Courtesy of Ben Mantle, it has a wonderfully magical feel and is a perfect match for the story inside. An ode to the world of Narnia: 1945. They have survived... Continue Reading →
