"The Magic Warble" Review and Giveaway

I love a good book.  Do you?  My kids are definitely following in my footsteps as they love to read, too.  When I was contacted to do a review of a fantasy novel for children ages 9-13, I jumped at the chance.

The book is called, The Magic Warble, written by Victoria Simcox.

It's a story of a 12-year old misfit girl who is mysteriously transported to another world full of dwarfs, fairies, talking animals and an enchanted ball referred to as the "magic warble".  As it turns out, this misfit girl is instrumental in the mission of returning the warble to it's rightful home and ridding the land of the evil queen.  The girl makes wonderful friends along the journey and learns plenty of lessons, including ones that have to do with perseverance and sacrifice.

When this book first arrived, I started reading it out loud to my kids.  My 11 year old daughter and 8 year old son loved it.  Even my 5 year old daughter would listen in and seemed to enjoy it.  It's full of adventure, excitement, twists and turns.  It also reads at a fast pace and the chapters are short - this is great for those kids who get bored quickly (like mine).

The author has generously offered to give one of you a signed copy of The Magic Warble!  This could be a great Christmas present for the middle-school aged child in your life!  And there are plenty of ways to enter this giveaway - so there are plenty of chances to win!
