Magelica’s Voyage to the Land of the Fairies by Louise Courey Nadeau is the magical story of Magelica who is born out of a sapphire colored egg. She has never met her parents, but has a mother, Gri, who watches over her and raises her. Magelica is half-fairy and half-human and now she has to undertake a journey to the Land of the Fairies through the portal in the forest. Gri bids Magelica goodbye as she goes with her friends, Prince Will and Odin. The whimsical journey of the three friends takes readers through exciting adventures and magical creatures as Magelica tries to find out the identity of her parents and her real identity.
The story has some good messages for young readers which are uplifting and encouraging, and will enable children to look at everything with a different perspective. The author brings out the creativity in the minds of readers and will make them dream and imagine things they otherwise would not think about. The underlying messages of love and trust have been woven into the plot with expertise, along with the concepts of positivity, an attitude of gratitude, and believing in oneself.
The writing style is fluid and that gives a good pace and movement to the story. The illustrations are equally enchanting, like the characters, and they breathe life into the characters and the scenes. It is an excellent bedtime storybook and can be used for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries. It is a book worth reading and having in one’s personal collection because, apart from the enchantment it gives, the messages are motivating and give courage and hope to children to face today’s world.
