The Magic Warble Giveaway

 

I love a story of how the tables turn and people take an alternative role in books and movies. It is great to get involved in a book. I've also love the good things I've heard about the The Magic Warble by Victoria Simcox.

BOOK OVERVIEW:
"Twelve-year-old Kristina Kingsly feels like the most unpopular girl in her school. The kids all tease her, and she never seems to fit in. But when Kristina receives an unusual Christmas gift, she suddenly finds herself magically transported to the land of Bernovem, home of dwarfs, gnomes, fairies, talking animals, and the evil Queen Sentiz.

In Bernovem, Kristina not only fits in, she’s honored as “the chosen one” the only one who can release the land from Queen Sentiz’s control."

I like the very first line, it sums up the type of books I read when I was younger (And loved) talking animals, gnomes and faeries...I never could get enough of those type of legends (I was fond of Irish legends when I was very young...druids and what not)
