This story is an absolute treasure! It is the classic hero's journey told by a masterful writer. Kristina is taken from victim in a world that readers will be familiar with to hero in a world that is stunningly and vividly brought to life through the imaginative writing of Victoria Simcox. It is a fantastic transformation, one that readers will not want to miss!
The Warble is a charming fast-paced fantasy adventure that is perfect for older elementary school children and middle grade. Seeing as the story is far lighter than my usual reads, that’s exactly how I imaged it; through the eyes of my newly-turned ten year old. Keeping him in mind, I journeyed with Christina through this magical, whimsical (with just enough hint of dark), delightful land. I met courageous characters like Werrien , Roage, and Clover, those you love to hate like Ramon and the Queen, and conflicted characters like Ugan the dwarf. Ugan was one of my favorites as he struggled with his own cowardice, making you to wonder if he will ever regain his sense of right and wrong. Or will he remain loyal to the Queen who has turned this beautiful peaceful land into something as ugly as herself?
The plot, while having a few twists, is entertaining but not complex, which makes it ideal for younger readers. It’s a classic quest story of good versus evil, well-written with hope and charm that moves along at a zipping speed that kept me turning the pages. There is plenty of action, magic, moral dilemmas, faith, heroism, self-sacrifice, and friendship.
The Warble is a sweet breath of fresh air. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys fairytales or is looking to inspire a young reader with a heartwarming and positive fantasy story.
There are threads that point to God and his everlasting love in this book. The story parallels Jesus' return and his victory over a fallen world. Those that have the faith - will see it. Those that don't want religion thrown in their face don't have to worry because it's so slight all you'll uncover is a really good book that offers a story of good triumphing over evil.
Great job Ms. Simcox! I enjoyed this book and how it spoke to me on many different levels.
Dwarfs, gnomes, fairies, talking animals, and even a Prince help round out this tale as twelve-year-old Kristina journeys through the land of Bernovem. Along with all the strange creatures she encounters, she finds herself in all sorts of curious predicaments where common sense fails and the nonsensical comes to be expected. Many valuable lessons are imparted along the way. Victoria Simcox's writing style is alluring and captivating.
This novel is guaranteed to spark the imagination of any child (as well as any adult). Not since the Wizard of Oz have I found myself so entertained. Truly a classic tale of good versus evil.
