Princess Betony and the Thunder Egg by Pamela Freeman
Walker Books, 2016. ISBN 9781925381030 (paperback)
(Age 9+) Recommended. Princess Betony and the Thunder Egg is a cute story in a cute little 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 paperback book is just over 100 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+. Another welcome reprint this time in paperback.
