The Magic Warble Book Review and Giveaway

For those of you who don't know, I'm a former elementary and middle school teacher. I still haven't given up my habit of reading children's lit- I like to stay on top of my reading in case I ever go back to teaching.


I was recently sent the book The Magic Warble to review.  It's about 12 year-old Kristina who doesn't quite fit in.  Her teacher gives her a gift that ends up transporting her to another world: one of fairies, dwarves, gnomes, and talking animals.


Kristina has the magic warble, which much be returned to its proper place, which will release the land from the reign of an evil queen.


This book is supposed to be for children ages 9-13, which I do think is appropriate.  If your child likes magic and the supernatural, but isn't quite ready for Harry Potter or Twilight, this is a good compromise.


It's an easy read with not much inference needed.


Win it: One of you will win an autographed copy of the book! If your email is not visible in your profile, please leave it with your comment. US only, please. Giveaway will end at 9pm on 12/22.

This giveaway is now closed and the winner is #15.

I'm excited! I love children's lit as well and I am teased by a couple of friends because I download and review YA and children's lit on my kindle to read and review.
I just want to know what my girls and their friends are reading ... or at least give them some ideas when they struggle with where to start :) I love to read and wish that every child could find the joy in it that I have always had.

thanks for the give-a-way ♥
