I also really liked the elements of fantasy woven into the story and the creative names that the author bestowed on some of her characters. For instance the bad witch named Trixa, the dragon named Jinxi, the talking mouse named Soldier and the "Thingamabob" which turned out to be a good witch named Senorita Favorita. This book is full of creativity and imagination, aspects which are sure to delight young readers. The illustrations are simple black & white drawings, but they are very well-done and definitely add visual delight to the storyline. I would definitely recommend this book for grades K-3 (although kindergartners and first graders might still need some help reading it).
Cecilia Spark likes bugs. She is an adventurer that takes to her back yard to discover what new species are crawling or flying around. But who knows what she may meet and discover when she herself is caught and flown to the Brimstone Forest! Witches, dragons even some pretty neat butterflies...all live in the Brimstone Forest and they are so cool, she just doesn't want to leave. Tricky part is, how does she get home when she wants to?
A great story for Young Readers of any age! I can't wait to see what Cecilia gets up to next!
The author used great names for all characters, places, and items. I also love how much of a tomboy Cecilia is. I was also a tomboy when I was young. I didn't go on any creepy crawly searches, but I especially like the encounter with the snapdragon plants. As a child, snapdragons were so much fun to play with.
I look forward to reading the next book, and will. Well done, Ngaire!

Cecilia, a ten year adventuress finds herself a friend while collaborating to escape and survive the many dangers of The Brimstone Forest.
I loved the references made in here to the snapdragons as it brings fond memories back of when my mom used to say "snapdragon" when she forgot something as I was growing up.
I loved the imagery presented by the author. The book was easy to read and I was easily able to relate to Cecilia!
This is a wonderful children's book which needs to grace the bookshelves in your home and read often to your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews alike!
But my daughter just loved the story, and has asked me to get more of her books. And when a child gets so interested in a story they want more, you know its a good book! She usually hates bugs, but she was drawn into this story even tho it had said "bug hunting" She Loved the pictures in the book as well . will have to get more Cecilia Sparks books for her .
Ngaire did a wonderful job of capturing the essence of an imaginary world and a little girl's big imagination.
This is a great book for kids, ages 9 to 12.
