And now for a new children's book that needs to be on your holiday list this year!

<div class=


Anni doesn't know about Elementals, Funk, Zephyrs, excited talking Bat-Rat creatures, and, least of all, Dragons. All that changes when her best friend, Lexi, is kidnapped and forces beyond Anni’s control trap her on a hidden, floating island in the Elemental world.

In a race against time, Anni sets out to save her friend. Along the way she finds allies among the Elementals, but she is also presented with a choice, one that might help save Lexi. If Anni agrees to an ancient, open-ended contract, will her sacrifice cost her more than she’s bargained for? Or will it land her in the middle of an age-old war between the humans, the Elementals, and the dreaded Fectus?


This book is aimed at kids 8-18, but I thoroughly enjoyed it as well! The author takes Harry Potter, Nancy Drew, Tolkien, Narnia and Ramona Quibley and shakes them all together, and comes up with the most wonderful tale of friendship and courage for young girls, I've seen in a long time! If you're getting your child a tablet or ereader for the holidays, make sure this chapter book  is on it!

I literally could not put the book down once I started to read it (I previewed it for Miss Grace) and read it in one sitting (it does have 314 pages).  The story line never dips in interest, and like the Harry Potter books, your child will be turning pages as fast as they can to see how Lexi and Anni are handling the spots they have gotten in, and who will appear next and confound what they think they know as a reader. 

I am hoping this is the beginning of a new series, as I'd love to read further adventures of the girls and their new friends, and family members, in their new home, above London! And I knw
