(From Goodreads)
          When her mother---the ruler of Benotripia---goes missing, Roseabelle knows she'll need the help of her best friends and their combined powers to survive the perilous journey ahead of her, rescue her mother, and save Benotripia! Written by a young author, this exciting adventure story pulls you into a true fantasy world. A suspenseful and addicting read!

          McKenzie writes with great imagination and scope. Her dialogue moves the story forward and her crisp descriptions make the story easy to visualize. This first installment in the Benotripia series is a great family read aloud or personal read for middle-grade readers (~ages 8-13). It promises more magic to come and I'm looking forward to book 2.

  1. No question, I'd go to Hogwarts. I've been waiting on that owl anyway....

  2. I think it could be fun to go hang out in Neverland with the lost boys for a while : )


So, what do you think, oh Lovely Reader?
