Children believe in magic wholeheartedly. They are explorers, curious by nature, dreaming of being princesses and of fighting dragons. Probably one of the best childhood memories that any person keeps close to their heart is that of their parents reading to them, moments in which they would be anything they wanted, anything they imagined, an important character in the story. If you’re looking for something new to read together with your little ones, and if you want something both engaging and pleasant, you should take a look at “The Legend of the Lost Rose,” by Daniel L. Rappaport and Patricia Gresham.
This debut story is set "in a time and place apart from our own” where “there is a dying planet governed by the rules of Magick.” This land suffers devastating changes, its existence depending on that of a mysterious rose planted atop the northernmost mountain. Spark, a young frog who usually enjoys his comfortable underground home while painting during the entire day, is more and more worried regarding the changes he notices in his land. When the last rose atop the mountain begins to whither, thus endangering the land, Spark goes on an adventure-filled quest for finding the only Magick that could possibly save it – the blue Pixie Dust. Along this journey, Spark will confront the arid deserts, the greedy Apovil creature, and he will also have to face his own weaknesses and overcome them.
Comprising exciting full interactive animations, “The Legend of the Lost Rose” is the first book in The Legend series, a collection of children's fantasy stories which feature delightful characters that set off on incredible adventures.
