A traditional children's fairy story with a modern twist. A time travelling dog, a wicked king from days of old and a struggle between right and wrong. An illustrated chapter book with interactive bonus material for middle grade readers. More
How could a scruffy dog in a bus depot and the call of crows, link back to another world of power and love?
Emma Calin's brand new series of modern day fairy stories for younger readers.
The ancient Kingdom of Zanubia and a stray dog looking for scraps in an inner-city repair garage, hold the secret. A wicked king, a brave girl, a young prince and the struggle between right and wrong maintain the fable tradition.
It's a chapter book story-time action ride. Just add imagination and stir. Suitable for reading ages 7-11, grades 3-7 or for adults to share with younger readers.
Both printed and digital versions of this story are enriched with charming illustrations (animé style). Bonus audio and video material is included via links in the text. Simply pop them up during the story on smart phones or electronic devices to bring this timeless story into the 21st century as you read.
