Summary

Bloomsbury presents The Unicorn Quest by Kamilla Benko, read by Jennifer Woodward.

An enchanting, exciting fantasy about a real-world girl searching for her sister in a land full of magic and strange creatures, blending the timeless feel of A Wrinkle in Time with Frozen’s powerful themes of identity, enchantment and sisterhood.

Claire Martinson still worries about her older sister Sophie, who battled a mysterious illness last year. But things are back to normal as they move into Windermere Manor...until the sisters climb a strange ladder in a fireplace and enter the magical land of Arden. 

There, they find a world in turmoil. The four guilds of magic no longer trust each other, the beloved unicorns have disappeared and terrible wraiths roam freely.  

Scared, the girls return home. But when Sophie vanishes in the night, it will take all of Claire's courage to climb back up the ladder, find her sister and uncover the unicorns' greatest secret.

Daughter really enjoyed

It’s was great for my Daughter (8). She found it easy to follow and loved it too much she didn’t want to turn it off at night. Great bartering tool.

Very interesting

When I was listening to this I never got bored, because there was always something new and interesting they described it in a way that I could feel what the character was going through. And you can relate with the characters so much that you feel like you are the character.

Finally

Finally an imaginative tale of adventure for all our middle school readers and listeners! This charming story of sisters trying to work problems out is needed to set an example of empowerment for our young readers.
