The Fairy Book by Alexandra & Svetlana McKenna
When I read the first book by the mother/daughter team of Alexandra and Svetlana Kovalkova McKenna, I was hooked. This beautifully written story has all of the magical elements expected in a pre-teen fairy-tale. Readers will be captivated from the first page as the story of Isabel and Rashkai unfolds. There is the proper amount of challenge and solution, allowing the story to teach life’s lessons while being entertaining. It is well written, poetic, and the kind of book that will draw a child and parent together as they read together. If you have a child, or take part in a library reading program, you don’t want to miss the opportunity of sharing this book. I am looking forward to reading and sharing ‘Isabel and the School for Sorceresses,’ the next book in this series.
