Description

By diverting a stream that was puddling through his dad’s farmyard, Colin inadvertently locks himself into a test of wills with the Queen of the Fairies. Colin would never have dreamed his engineering expertise and hard work would lead to an encounter with the queen. Or that to prepare himself to match wits with her, he must first visit a place where he would lose, then find himself. Go take a walk and get lost with Colin in that special place. After you find yourself there, maybe you too will be emboldened to face any problem that might confront you.

With the aid of Jerome Tiller’s brave adaptation and 26 pen and ink drawings by Marc Johnson-Pencook, George MacDonald, the grandfather of fantasy tales, can take you to that place, lose you there, and help you to find yourself.

I was invested in what was going on from the description, I really enjoyed going through this book and thought that the plot was perfectly done. The characters were interesting and felt like real people and worked in this universe. The drawings in this book were beautifully done and I enjoyed getting to see them during my read. I can't wait to read more from the author.

"But oddly enough once more, it does not follow that the country to which the fairies are banished is so much richer and more beautiful for their presence. Not at all. For if that country has its own fairies, it doesn’t need any more."
