This magically written book was one of the best on this blog. I really was intrigued from the start and the emotion and expression intertwined into the book gives it a powerful kick. I loved all the characters and Katherine Rundell writes with wit and kindness. I really enjoyed the story and the illustrations throughout give it a lovely warmth. The main character, Feo, was described so well and not only did I love her personality, I really got to know her throughout the story. She is fiery and determined and it makes me want to be a brave as her! I recommend it to ages 8+ and it will make any child feel lovely!
