Can Wynn help her tiny friends or will the scheming King quog have other ideas? Heroes it seems come in all sizes.

“A spellbinding tale of adventure, magic and friendship”

Book Review

An engaging fantasy with a curse, friendship, and magical adventures. C.L. Williams’ ability to build enthralling worlds abounds in this novel. She’s added to it even more by creating a hybrid of real and fictitious locations within the book and that is one of the many details that sets this novel apart from its competition.

This was a creative story inspired by Scottish history and lore about a girl named Anne-Wynn Hopringle, the second of 3 daughters of a Scottish Laird. If you’re looking for a debut novel that hits it out of the park, this middle-grade fantasy knocks it out of the park.
