One cold and snowy day, avid young reader Eleanor Mason embarks on her second magical journey via the pages of a magical book, this time to the City of Gold to help a prophecy-remembering rabbit save his city and his people from an evil imp who has decided to turn everything into gold, using a magic spinning wheel. On this new quest, Eleanor meets and is helped or betrayed by various characters along her journey. Using her wit and courage, Eleanor devises a way she may be able to defeat the imp (known to us only as ‘R’), destroy the wheel, and save all the creatures.
City of Gold by Nikki Mitchell is the second in a series of books focusing on the magical adventures of Eleanor Mason, a particularly precocious nine-year-old. Written for a middle school audience, City of Gold, which is reminiscent of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and incorporating other facets of well-known fairy tales, is a quick and engaging read which allows the young reader’s imagination to partake of the main character’s journey effortlessly. Nikki Mitchell’s usage of colorful language and captivating fantasy worlds and the feeling that I, the reader, was Eleanor Mason made this story the perfect choice for an afternoon’s read with my child, be it inner or real. I have no doubt parents and children will love it and the other books in this series. I look forward to the next adventure.
