"Really fun! Loved it! Can't wait for the sequels. I've always loved faeries and fantasy stories. I'm a big fan of Piers Anthony. I just loved it. Great characters. And, of course, Madison and the way you described her. Dogs truly are pure hearts." -Terry Fator -Winner of America's Got Talent 2007 and Vegas Headliner at The Mirage.
"Warning to parents: Once your kids start reading this book, they won't want to put it down! You may catch them with a flashlight reading after bedtime! This is a wonderfully enchanting tale of three 12-year-old friends that encounter a faerie in the dark woods near their school, and their lives are changed forever. The author weaves her story with such beautiful prose and descriptions of the characters that make you feel as if you know them and can see everything happening in your mind's eye. This is more than a story about faeries, though. It is a story about kids who suffer at the hands of bullies, a story about the difficulties kids encounter from parents and school teachers, and about the power of friendship. It describes characters who display incredible loyalty even in the face of great danger. They work together to save the life of a tiny, magical creature who has lost her way, having slipped through a portal from her world into the realm of human beings. In the meantime, there is an exchange between the characters that allows the reader to enter a world where there is magic in the trees, in our pets and in our hearts. I enjoyed this book tremendously, I hated for it to end. I look forward to the sequel!" -Diana Reed MD
"This story is a great read for middle schoolers and even upper primary school advanced readers. The book has three twelve-year-old protagonists that are best friends, one girl and two boys. They are challenged by bullying, how far you will go for friendship, and facing their fears of letting their parents down. There is fantasy and intrigue tied up in the story, with a generous dose of mystery!
This is the first book in the series and I am anxious to read the next installment. The author does an excellent job of writing to the reading level in that it is easy for middle schoolers but not overly simple for adults. I highly recommend this book for both girls or boys, especially those who face or have faced adversity in school." -Judy Long
