An entertaining story with a surprising ending! (And a pretty funny one too, in a macabre sort of way.) I enjoyed reading it.
- The Magic World of Bracken Lea
on July 17, 2014
The Magic World of Bracken Lea is a great book that will appeal to both children and grownups alike. It is beautifully illustrated, with every chapter containing an image of one of the characters or events in the story. (The cover of the book shows the main hero of Bracken Lea - Glodwyn the Gnome.)
Every chapter is a story set in the magic world of Bracken Lea Wood, a small forest bordered by the local car park. There are many characters such as fairies, gnomes, and leprechauns, and they interact with humans, even though people are unaware of their presence and can't see them. One of my favorite stories was about the rescue of a Leprechaun who had accidentally traveled from Ireland to England on a lorry. The stories are charming and funny, and will appeal to children as well as adult readers for their subtle humor, beauty, and sense of mystery and magic. The book also shows the importance of preserving the natural habitat, the home of the forest folk, who are portrayed as kind and helpful to the forest, other creatures, and humans.
I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it!
