Walker Books 2013. ISBN 978 1 921720 24 6.
(Age 9+) Recommended. Princess Betony and the Thunder Egg is a cute story in a cute little hardcover book. it is the second story involving Princess Betony and she comes from a land of magic. To help celebrate the King and Queen's anniversary, the Wild Magic gives them a gift but it is the Princess who must collect it. Betony must travel to the Dark Forest. It is a great privilege but also very scary! Can she retrieve the gift safely? How will she make it through the forest of spider webs?
This small hardcover book is only 103 pages long and reminds me of the types of little books little girls would have been given in the 'olden days'. The author, Pamela Freeman, has created a lovely little story, like a fairy tale, and I would recommend it to girls, aged 9+. Its small size also makes it great for travelling!
