The Magic Warble

Winter is a perfect time to take advantage of the schedule slow down (we're in between sports right now) and reconnect as a family. I love to spend lazy weekend days curled up in front of the fire, reading with my children. My son and I are both fond of books filled with wonder, enchantment and fantasy. As you can imagine, I was thrilled to be offered an opportunity to review
The Magic Warble by Victoria Simcox.
Author Victoria Simcox, originally of Ontario, currently a resides in Washington with her husband, three children and her own collection of creatures. As a young girl, Victoria was greatly inspired by the works of C.S.Lewis.
She recalls wishing she could visit Naria as a girl and, indeed, has found a way to satisfy that desire through her novel. Fans of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe will certainly want to add The Magic Warble to their collections.
