This is a really lovely novella. The author stated at the end that she wrote it always intending it to be a children's book even as her publishers told her it was not. I would happily give this book to an 10+ child I think that the messages with in it are fantastic. Loved it as and adult reader too. Entusiastic pick.

Loaned to me by a friend and a cute bedtime read. It was a neat take on some story elements, though I am not sure I am invested enough to continue on myself.

LibrarianRyan It‘s odd for sure and sometimes how the story is broken up is just ... humm 6d

I really enjoyed this, the examination of privilege was a key theme along side a quest to fulfil a sisterly promise which by the end was quite epic in proportions - loved the talking animal quest companions, the good wizard with a ceremonial white beard, magic carpets that wrap you up tight to fly, the origin of Snow White/Merlin and a librarian that turned into a owl in moments of stress...

Balibee146 Love Garth Nix but don't have this.... It sounds great 👍 1w
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Balibee146, it‘s aimed at a slightly younger audience than his Old Kingdom books - but I really enjoyed it 1w

“If I‘m not back by nightfall, come and take a very careful look,” said Anya “but I don‘t expect to need rescuing. I‘m not that kind of Princess.”

“What kind of Princess are you?”

“Not the kind that needs rescuing,” said Anya firmly.

The scream was very loud and went on for a very long time. Princess Anya, who was reading in the castle library, ignored it at first but eventually lifted her head from her book to listen... it was her older sister Morven screaming, which was not unusual, but the intensity and duration of this particular scream were quite out of the ordinary.

“Put me down and have that archer shoot me! I‘m a traitor”

“Don‘t be silly” said Anya. “Your a librarian who is unlucky enough to work for an evil sorcerer, that‘s all.”
