The Magic Warble

 by Victoria Simcox

Published by Two Harbors Press

ISBN 978-1-935097 17-4

 At the request of the author, Victoria Simcox, I received said paperback,  but larger than usual paperback; it was also sent to me at no charge for my honest opinion.

Dwarfs, gnomes, fairies, talking animals, and an evil queen – all these and more can be found in The Magic Warble, an enchanting tale of adventure and friendship.

 Twelve-year-old Kristina Kingsly feels like the most unpopular girl in  her school. The kids all tease her, and she never seems to fit in. But  when Kristina receives an unusual Christmas gift, she suddenly finds  herself magically transported to the land of Bernovem, home of dwarfs,  gnomes, fairies, talking animals, and the evil Queen Sentiz.

In Bernovem, Kristina not only fits in, she’s honored as “the  chosen one” the only one who can release the land from Queen Sentiz’s  control. But it’s not as simple as it seems. To save Bernovem, she must  place the gift she was given, the famous “Magic Warble” in its  final resting place. And she must travel through the deep forest, climb a  treacherous mountain, and risk capture by the queen’s “zelbocks”  before she reaches her destination. Guided by her new fairy friends,  Clover and Looper and by Prince Werrien, a teenage boy, as well as an  assortment of other characters, Kristina sets off on a perilous journey  that not only tests her strength but her heart.

     I was amazed when I requested to review this book because I am not an avid reader to be quite honest with you.  Therefore, I felt not being one, this book should and will get a very honest opinion.  When Victoria Simcox wrote to me and stated she would be thrilled if I would review her book I felt obligated at first, but now I am more honored that she chose me.  In reading the brief synopsis of this book it was about all the things that I knew would interest me, and keep me awake (reading puts me to sleep).   I have been interested in fairy tales and mythology all my life, but this book was different.  I started to read about Kristina, a child who is a bit of a loner, and many a times went off into her own world.  I was the same way as a child so I started relating from the very beginning.  Then she had a teacher who recognized her quality within, and gave her the mystical task of returning the The Magic Warble.   As I read this story it became more of a place that I could go to, and forget about reality, and hide within the realm of the author’s fantasy.  The author had a way to pull you in with emotional thoughts, and heartwarming scenes, but yet keep you on the edge of your chair.   At times they were a bit complex, but as you read on you were back in a comfort zone smiling and giggling at the author’s whimsical way of explaining a scene.

You all know me, and I would just like to insert here that I would like to thank this author from the bottom of my heart for opening a whole new world to me.  I have medical problems that cause pain from time to time, but when I sat to read this book I felt like Alice in Wonderland falling into a deep black hole and winding up in Bernovem without the pain.   I walked where Kristina walked and saw what she saw, and felt warmth of friendship when she felt the warmth.   I highly recommend this story to children of all ages.  I myself will be giving this book to my granddaughter who is going through some trying times right now, and I believe it’ll pull her out of it as it did me.  Yes, this author has a very talented gift that she wants to share with all of us, and she shared with me a new life in the world of books to take me from the sorrow, and pain of reality.  Thank you Vicki may the world treat you with as much patience, and kindness as you have afforded us.

The book also came with a Magic Warble book-marker as an extra gift, and a lime green bracelet that says “The Magic Warble”. I know my granddaughter will wear it with pride.  She’s an honor roll student, and books is definitely her passion.  Ms. Simcox also personally autographed it for her, which will definitely put a smile on her face to have a “for real author” as she put it sign the book.  We’ll also be able to talk about it together, which will give us something in common to relate too.  If you have something you need to get off your mind, and want to relax in a different realm then what you’re use too I highly recommend this book.  I personally cannot wait to see if there is going to be a Part II because I’m going to be first in line.  This book was highly entertaining in a sense that you could actually feel like you were watching a movie.  The author definitely has a way with words to hold your interest, and I hated to put the book down when I had to stop for a moment for the real world’s chores.  Many a time I thought oh this might happen next or that was going to happen next, and I was always wrong.  What a vivid imagination of a parallel universe, and experience of literature.  Many times I was in awe at such a turn in the story, and never would’ve though it would lead to such a fabulous end.  Did you ever read a book or see a movie that you said, “Oh, it should have ended this way or that”.  Not this story!  They should definitely make a movie out of it.  Personally, I think Tim Burton should be introduced to this story. 

     The pictures in the book only added to the indebtedness of the story.  Nothing elaborate to take away from the book itself.  They were a perfect addition. 

      Christmas would be a great way to open up a new world for your child or relative/friend.  Stocking stuffer?  Definitely.  Birthday present?  Of course.  Just because you care?  Most assuredly.  This holiday season pick up a copy of The Warble, and give it to Santa.  He knows a lot of people, and children that could use a break from the real world, and put a smile on everyone’s face.
