The Tale of Liril by Kevis Hendrickson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was asked to read and review this short story in exchange for a free ecopy.
This was a wonderful children's tale where Liril wants to give her father something for his birthday but is too poor to buy him anything. An old woman in the village tells her if she will retrieve her locket from the black forest she will give her a magic seed. This quest sends her on an adventure that teaches her to be careful what you wish for and to appreciate what she already has. Full of magic and talking creatures it is a delightful story that's perfect for middle school age.
