The Magic Warble Review & Giveaway 6/27 daily

About the Book:

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 take on the Book:
I loved reading The Magic Warble with my 13yr old son. I would read a few chapters and then let my son read them and then we would talk about what we read. My son loved that the main character has a pet rats because he has a pet hamster that he is always playing with. The story it self was a very fun read and flowed great. I liked reading it at being 32 and my son was very into the story. I would definitely recommend this book  for anyone to read. I loved the adventure & the fairies.

  4. Choosing a favorite book of all-time is so hard. I love reading ANYTHING and EVERYTHING. I guess if I HAD to choose, I would say the Twilight saga because I have read through each of the books more than I have read through any other books (repeatedly I mean).

  6. I think my answer to this question could change every other day. I am an avid reader and read many different genres. One of our favorites to read as a family when kids were little was Junie B Jones ( The B stands for Beatrice) cuz i really got into the character of junie and still to this day when i use the voice the kids know it as Junie. haha good memories.....
