Julia has done it again...
This book is SO DELIGHTFUL!
And the illustrations are MAGNIFICENT!

Read how cute this book starts out...I LOVE the sing-song rhyming...

"In Fairyland, each loyal sprite
Helps choose a queen to rule the night.

A regal queen is much desired.
As noble leader, she’s admired."

Deciding she’d be great as queen,
Quinn wished for velvet gowns of green

To dazzle in the morning light
With gems and sequins shining bright."

And once Quinn is all decked out...

She learns that a king must rescue every queen.

So she sets out to find a king...

She kisses a frog, bites and apple, consults a mirror, sets aside a slipper...

But then she meets "the King of all...A gruesome ogre, wide and tall."


This is one of her best...of course I said that about all the others too...
But this one really is DARLING!

About the Author
Quinn is a little fairy who dreams of becoming a queen. When I was a little girl, I wanted to become an author. This dream began as a tiny flicker of hope inside my heart. I remember reading my stories to anyone who would listen—even my dolls. Each time I shared one, I felt that spark to become a writer grow stronger inside me. You don’t need a prince or a good fairy to make your dreams come true. Stand up and conquer any nasty ogres who try to stand in your way. When we work hard and believe in ourselves, anything is truly possible. Come visit me on Facebook.

About the Illustrator
For as long as I can remember I’ve loved to draw. Growing up, no matter how busy I became or how much homework I had to do, I made the time to draw and paint. It was my dream to become an artist, and now here I am illustrating stories to share with you. Today, my dream is still alive, but now it has grown into something much bigger. I want to become an even better artist. Just  like Quinn, I am always setting new goals for myself. Belief in one’s self is the fuel that keeps a dream alive. Do your best and you will find the happily ever after you so richly deserve. To see more of my art, come visit me at www.bethtrott.com.
