The Magical Misadventures of Prunella Bogthistle by Deva Fagan - ADVISABLE

Fagan, Deva The Magical Misadventures of Prunella Bogthistle, 263 pgs. Henry Holt and Company, 2010.

Language – G, Sexual Content – G; Violence – G;

Prunella isn’t a normal Bogthistle worthy of the name-especially when she helps an Uplander. Being banished just makes her more determined to prove herself to her grandmother. On the run with Uplander Barnaby not only helps her to prove herself, but to save everyone from the villain in disguise.

I was surprised by this spectacular story. Discovering yourself is hard, just like Prunella and Barnaby find out along their adventure. It was a magical tale that kept me until the very end. I hope there’s a sequel because I’m not ready to let go of these characters.
