Children’s Literary Classics Seal of Approval

Fable Nuthatch lives a quiet, safe life in the village of Larkmoor, full of simple people leading normal lives. There is no magic here. None except for the spark that runs through Fable’s veins. She is different than the others here. Living under the roof of her over-protective aunt, her magic is kept secret, hidden inside the walls of their cottage.

When a strange book lands in Fable’s lap, and her cousin disappears into its pages, she follows, hurtling into an enchanted forest far from the rolling hills of her home. This is a land filled with strange people, magic and more danger than Fable has ever dreamed of.

She must battle for not only a way home, but for the lives of those she loves dearest. With the help of her peculiar new friends, Fable must learn to trust in herself or risk losing her cousin forever. Can she save him before it’s too late?
