I was so excited when I found out that one of my closest friends was going to be an author!! It is so exciting and fun to see your imagination come to life on pages of a book and I couldn’t be more proud of her!

This book is fun, imaginative and lets your kids go on a magical adventure in a far off place. There are great stories told by her grandpa, dragons and medieval castles to explore. Finding so much more in this book we follow Sadie the cute, loveable little main character that you can’t help but adore on an adventure of a lifetime! She brings two of her cousins along on her adventure to solve the riddle of her grandfather’s latest story. Is it real, is it just make believe? Follow these three as they learn new clues that take them to amazing places to see things you won’t believe until you see it! 😉

Who doesn’t love a great fairytale story! I know my kids and I do! It makes it all the more special when it is magical stories told by her beloved Grandpa. It brings a fantastic familial aspect to the whole book. Her Grandpa encourages her imagination to grow and take her on all kinds of adventures, just like we all should do with our kiddos!

My kids and I loved this book! It is a snuggle with your babies and read it kind of book. But also easy enough for them to read on their own!  My oldest son has read it numerous times! It is filled with lots of great illustrations and a story that is easily followed. My oldest is a second grader and this book is the perfect length for him, he gets bored easily if the books are too long lol! But with this he zoomed through it in one setting and thoroughly enjoyed it! I think his favorite part was the book-eating dragon, because let’s face it he’s a crazy boy and loves dragons! 🙂 We are all anxiously waiting on her next book!!!

 

So if you haven’t done it yet, go buy this book for yourself and your entire family! 🙂 🙂

I highly recommend!!!
