Lucy Butterfly: A Dream Tale
Lucy discovers an enchanted kingdom in her dreams. Waking up in a strange place, she gets wrapped up in an epic adventure to save a kingdom. The odd thing is that is seems she's been expected, the people of the kingdom know her name and they have a horse all ready for her.
It becomes apparent that Lucy is part of a prophecy told about in a scroll she is shown. She has fallen into a fairy tale about a kingdom under a curse. The only way to break the curse was to complete a quest of three tasks.
Lucy was quite an imaginative girl but whenever she had created adventures, she was usually a sidekick, not the main character--so was rather excited at the prospect of being the heroine in her dream adventure! She meets unforgettable characters and dear new friends who help her along the quest. And while she is challenged, she finds reserves within herself that she didn't know she had!
Lucy Butterfly is a great upper elementary or middle grade read that both girls and boys can enjoy. I loved Lucy's transformation within the story and how she grew in confidence as she completed each quest. Stay tuned for two more adventures within the Lucy Butterfly series!
