The Magic Warble review and giveaway ends 4-23


We are big book readers in this house and love all kinds of stories especially ones that we can relate to or that interest us. So When I was approached by Victoria Simcox the author of The Magic Warble . It is a great chapter book about fairies, gnomes, dwarfs and evil queens but also about a real life girl going through some stressful times at school. My oldest who is 11 couldnt wait to get a hold of the book and begin reading it. It took her a couple weeks with school and everything but she was excited to read it.

She loved it. She is so into the fairies and magically worlds. She loved the real life aspect of the little girls life and how she overcomes her stresses and troubles. My daughter relates to it because she was teased about her teeth and stuff so she know how the little girl feels and couldnt wait to see how she overcomes it all. It was a great story for kids and very interesting. I could so see this book turned into a movie and it would be a great movie. My daughter is now doing a book report on it for school she loved it that much and her teacher and friends want to read it now because of all her compliments and praises of the book.

My overall opinion is this is a great preteen book for girls and it is written great and very understandable for kids. I would definitely recommend this to all moms of preteen girls. So check out The Magic Warble you will be glad you did.

A little sneak peak of the story from the Author:
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.

Victoria Simcox is giving one of my lucky readers a book yay!
