“Her voice swirled like plumes of smoke into the bright white light. The peculiar tunnel seemed to have no up or down, and they fought with flailing arms and legs to regain their balance. Suddenly, Penny landed on a rough surface with a loud bump, hitting her head on something hard. Everything went black.”
Penny and her friend Lola wake up to find themselves in a forgotten fairground. Here an evil force has stolen everything that sparkles, silencing laughter and cheer long, long ago. All that remains is the terrifying master, the Mountain, who loathes the smell of children. Especially the ones who dare to defy him…
Despite her fears, Penny must face the master on her quest to find little brother Bill and to fight the White Light. In her pocket she clutches a crumpled-up note from her long-lost mother.
The Forgotten Fairground is a story written with magical words to be read aloud and shared with children ages 3-9. It’s about finding courage, fighting light with light and how you can always whistle if you need help…
Lonely in the Land of Letters is a dreamy book for children 3-9 years old with attention to our alphabet but it is also a book about daring to challenge yourself. About the fact that loneliness is something you feel, not something you are.
Elba is hurting everywhere. We get to follow her extraordinary journey to a magic never-heard-of land. She meets kooky Mr Insect and finds the sweetest little lion in her pocket. But she also faces challenges, makes tough decisions and overcomes her fears. Finally, she realizes what the pain was all about.
We got to follow Elba’s journey, both the one she is doing inside herself and the one she is doing in the magical Land of Letters. The book is 36 pages of Mrs Mighetto’s typical whimsical mark of fairy tale and aquarelle.
… I’m afraid, but my curiosity is even stronger. With my eyes closed, I squeeze the paper tight in my hands and carefully whisper the name of the never-heard-of land. A minute goes by, and I barely dare to breathe. It feels like I’m turning into a bubbly glass of sparkling water. And then, all of a sudden, I smell earthworms. You know, as you do after a summer rain. And when I open my eyes, I’m surrounded by mountains.
