I’ve always loved adventure stories and magic stories so A most magical girl by Karen Foxlee was a great find!
Shortlisted in the 2017 CBCA, this story takes the reader on a magical journey through a part of London I am sure you never thought existed.
Fairy walls, troll holes and shadows that chase are all part of a journey that Annabel must undertake if she is to save London from being taken over by …..and his machine which will turn the world we know it into darkness and evil times.
This story will be devoured by young readers and I think girls will love the fact that the three heroes of the story are all females who show intelligence, bravery and friendship.
This would be a great way to get your students or children thinking about the possibilities of the magical world and what might lie beneath our city streets!
