I just finished reading The Magic Warble by Victoria Simcox and it is a fabulous story. I liked Kristina right away and could relate to her love of sleep and the fact that she often oversleeps and misses the bus. The pace of the story is excellent! The author created a magical new world with creatures that I could easily picture and a storyline that I thought about when I wasn’t reading. I especially liked Kristina and the strength that she shows throughout the book. I would definitely want her on an adventure with me and I liked to see the way she solved problems and treated others. Throughout the book there were drawings to accompany some of the text and they added to my enjoyment of the story. I loved imaging what was happening and the illustrations only made the story better! I think that this book would be great for kids in grades 4-8. Even adults will love it! Anyone that likes a good fantasy story will fall into the pages of this wonderful book and go on a journey that will stay with them after they turn the last page. I look forward to reading the next book in the series, The Black Shard.
