About the Book:

Lila always knew that her big eyes made her special, but she never realized how special. She can see her invisible pet dog, Fluffy, who introduces Lila and her family to a kingdom of invisible people. Their lives are changed forever when Lila learns she's a real princess.

My Review:

Lila has always wanted a dog but already having two cats posed a problem. But one day Lila had a brilliant idea, what if she had an invisible dog? So that very day when her dad came home from work, she ran down the stairs to tell him of her wonderful idea. After they talked it over with her mom, Lila and her father went to the pet store to find her an invisible dog. When she finds him, he speaks to her in a language she understands. Having the dog of her dreams, all she wants to do is bring him to school. Well, this should be no problem because no one can see him. But Lila has no way to tell people he's there without them thinking she is crazy. So Fluffy and she must go through a whole bus ride of Fluffy almost getting sat on and almost stepped on. When she gets to school, her friend Eleanor causes a big because not only can Lila see Fluffy but also Eleanor.

Weeks Later, Lila finds out that her dog, Fluffy knows of a small race of invisible people. After meeting these invisible people, Lila and her family find out that she is a princess. Or according to her birthmark. They go through many weeks of meetings with the invisible people before Lila is officially made a princess. But the ending was unexpected and wonderful. You won't believe who Fluffy really is.

Great read for all ages! Charming fairytale about a little girl, an invisible dog, and invisible people without all the scare of witches and bad people.

Children love surprise happenings including some of their unintended consequences particularly when it affects others.

In Mark J. Grant's Lila: The Sign of the Elven Queen a big-eyed six-year old Lila always wanted to have a dog of her own. Lila informs us that this was something due to her uncle Mark, who was not really her uncle, as her father explained, however, this didn't matter. Mark had two special Aussie rescue dogs and Lila couldn't understand why people would abandon their dogs. It was similar to some of those math problems at school which she had difficulty comprehending. And whenever Lila couldn't understand something she would reason that it all boiled down to a numbers over sixty problem that seemed to always stump her.

Although Lila had two cats, she suspected that her Papa would not allow another animal in their Manhattan apartment and she also surmised that her building would not allow dogs. To work out her problem she decided to have an invisible dog that no one could see, only herself. She knew, however, that before proceeding with her plan she had to receive her Papa's permission.

When Lila broached the subject with her Papa, all kinds of questions popped up such as what would one do with an invisible dog, where do you get its invisible food or an invisible brush, and what if the invisible dog was using the toilet when Papa needed to shave or wanted to take a shower? Nonetheless, in the end and to make Lila happy, her parents decided that it was quite alright to permit an invisible dog in their apartment and they also agreed with Lila's decision to name the dog Fluffy.

LILA: THE SIGN OF THE ELVEN QUEEN by Mark J. Grant is an adventure for Young Readers/Fairy Tales/Folklore. An interesting read of how a little girl,Lila, becomes an Elven Princess. An enchanting modern day fairy tale from New York to Iceland. A magical and mystical story of the invisible people of Iceland. Alice in Wonderland move over and make room for Lila, the Elven Princess. An invisible dog, named Fluffy,the invisible people of Iceland and the adventure of a lifetime, what's not to enjoy? Fluffy is so much more than a dog and dreams do come true in "Lila: The Sign of the Elven Queen". A wonderful read for Young and old readers alike. Lila,is a grand child with a vivid imagination, and is a very special child. Well written,easy to read for older Young Readers,with engaging characters and an interesting non-scary modern-day Fairy Tale story. A great read! I do hope there will be more from this author and his Fairy Tales. Received for an honest review from the publisher.

RATING: 4.5

HEAT RATING: NONE(YOUNG READERS)

In Lila: The Sign of the Elven Queen by Mark J. Grant readers are introduced to Lila, a six year old with a great personality. Lila is very polite, well mannered and has a creative mind. One day Lila and her father are spending time together when Lila tells her father that she wants a dog. When Lila's father takes her to the pet shop she is excited and doesn't know there is a surprise for her.

At the pet shop, Lila, meets Fluffy an invisible talking dog. Fluffy had been looking for Lila for a long time. Lila introduces Fluffy to her family and soon the adventure begins. The family meets Ragnor who tells them about the invisible people of Iceland. Ragnor allows them to see the people and they become to like Lila and her family. Lila soon finds out that her dog is a king and that she is to be a junior princess. Lila is also told that when she turns seven years old that magical things will happen.

Lila: The Sign of the Elven Queen is a magical story about a little girl with an exciting imagination. Lila learns how special she is through her talking dog and is given the surprise that every little girl dreams of. This was a wonderful story with an interesting storyline. This book started off slow but picked up later and kept my interest. I enjoyed it because of the author's creativity. I recommend Lila: The Sign of the Elven Queen to others.
