About the Author
A.H. Richardson is a treasured storyteller, whose unlimited imagination conjures up challenging and unforgettable characters, both good and evil, that dare children everywhere to delve into their own imaginations and learn to rely on courage and bravery to win the day. Born in England (yes, there are dragons there too), the author has always loved tales of flying and mythical magical creatures. She once tried to pin wings on her pony, quite sure that he could then fly! She is the daughter of the famous composer, Clive Richardson, who always encouraged her to write, even as a small child. She paints and sculpts, plays guitar, is a linguist, acted in films and on stage, and has trained dressage competitors. She is the proud mother of three grown sons and grandmother to three active, loving grandchildren. At present, she keeps a horse named Amaretto and writes her fabulous fantasies from her adopted home in Tennessee near the picturesque Smoky Mountains. It is there that she writes happily about the indomitable Jorie and her adventures.

Jorie, a imaginative young girl, has been sent to live with her Aunt in the countryside for a while. While she is there she intends to explore and learn as much as she can from her Aunt and the other people working in her house.
She never expects to find a book with magic words that open and close windows and tales of dragons that make her imagination run wild. Thankfully she doesn't have to ponder about the book alone.
A young boy named Rufus who lives next door becomes quick friends with Jorie. He is clumsy and shy but listens to her with an open mind. When the time comes for Jorie to fulfill a destiny that she had no knowledge of, she will have her new friend at her back.
Jorie is the only one who can bring the three magic stones together. There are dark forces working to stop her and if they get their hands on her they will steal the power that has been kept apart and protected for years.
Can Jorie maintain her childhood innocence while doing what she has been destined to do? She will find out that there is darkness within people she thought she could trust and lightness in people who she thought she should hate.
I enjoyed reading this book quite a bit while I was on vacation. The setting is as fantastic as the story is. The author is clearly very skilled in weaving a setting that is appropriate for the story they have envisioned.
It was nice to read something lighter than the typical 'fiction' book. Of course there was still a darkness to the story regarding the 'villain' but even then there is a childish side of the story that makes up for it.
Here is my rating for it:
Overall Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher. I was not required to write a positive review, and have not been compensated for this. This is my honest opinion.
This is a great book as it teaches young children to never give up no matter how hard the task may be and also to never judge someone based on how they look. It also teaches that we all have “an inner magic that takes many forms, such as love, friendship, courage, and tolerance”. This is a truly wonderful story with interesting characters, vivid descriptions, and a unique and creative story line that flows effortlessly. Jorie and the Magic Stones is a great start in this new chapter book series and I can only imagine where the author will takes us next! I would definitely recommend this book to young readers who enjoy fantasy stories that will test the limits of their imagination.
