This book was fantastic and I didn’t even know it was graded for middle grade fiction until I started writing this review.
Peter arrives in the village where Magdalene and Gimbo live and they immediately start adventuring together. They start out by spying on the princess, which is where the story takes its first twist. These three fast become best friends and its not long before Magdalene reveals her secrets to Peter who thinks she is a little loony.
The story keeps a steady pace and introduces the reader to an interesting culture and customs. We follow these three friends are are able to see good character development and the rituals are detailed and quite creative.
This story was engaging and kept me interested until the end. Can’t wait to read the second installment.
