From Amazon: Kristina receives an unusual Christmas gift that transports her to the land of Bernovem. In Bernovem, she is honored as “the chosen one” the only one who can release the land from Queen Sentiz’s control. To save Bernovem, she must place the gift she was given, the famous “Warble” in its resting place. She must travel through the deep forest, climb a treacherous mountain, and risk capture by the queen’s “zelbocks” before reaching her destination. Dwarfs, gnomes, fairies, talking animals, a prince, and an evil queen; all these and more can be found in The Warble, an enchanting tale of intrigue and adventure.
My Review: I found this story to be enchanting, to say the least. We have a young girl who receives a metallic ball, in a hat box from her teacher. Once home, with the hat box and her pet rat, things started happening fast. The story unfolds to an amazing adventure with two queens, a king, multiple fairies, gnomes, creatures of all sorts, fairy flowers with special healing properties, and much more. All kinds of problems occur in trying to save a kingdom and dwarves, some of them, helped. Bravery was mustered by each person, fairy tale wide, and good replaced evil in the end. The reader is left wondering if what happened was real or a dream.
