Lucy Ever After by Heather Cursham
It has been six years since Lucy first had her dream adventure. She is now in high school and hasn't really thought much about those distant adventures--life is now full of school and other activities. So imagine her surprise when she wakes up within the Kingdom once again but this time she is joined by her little sister Ella (now the age that Lucy was on her first encounter with the Kingdom).
This journey involves solving a riddle; thankfully Jethro and the youngsters he is taking care of are willing to help. Lucy and Ella find some clues to the riddle in their own world and face obstacles and dangers in their journey to solve the riddle. The future of the Kingdom depends on them!
I love the fantasy world that Heather Cursham has created in the Lucy Butterfly series. The strong themes of family loyalty, strong friendships, persevering through adversity and staying hopeful are important lessons for children to see illustrated. This would make a great read aloud (especially at bedtime when children may end of dreaming themselves into their own fantasy!).
