Sara is a young heroine who gets caught up in her mother’s stories. Questioning what’s real and what’s her imagination, she is swept away on an adventure of her own to a castle ruled by a dragon and his goblins. In a plot to return home she tricks the goblins, wanders the castle, and meets a trickster — a pooka whom she names Fairy. Sara and her story of learning to read offer some valuable lessons on overcoming struggle. In this introduction to a series, Sara begins an epic adventure in story.
For children who don’t enjoy reading, this is a wonderful lesson in story form.
