Rowan Oakwing is a modern day fairytale that will set children's imaginations on fire. The story is set in the world as we know it today and is packed full of adventure, magic, and imagery that really draw you in. There are some great characters within the story, my favourite being Harold the robin. They're all well written and their adventures full of excitement, wonder, and danger.

My daughter would have loved this book when she was younger, her bookshelf was filled to the brim with traditional fairytale books but this book brings fairies to life in a way that most fairytales don't. Rowan Oakwing isn't a once upon a time in a faraway land tale, it brings fairies into the real world, a world that children know and can relate to, and turns make-believe into reality.

I would suggest that if you plan on reading it to a child under the age of 8 or 9 that you read it first to see if it would be suitable. It's an exciting and magical story but it's tinged with sadness and touches on topics such as the loss of a parent and bullying.

Rowan Oakwing was such a fun and imaginative read. I had a smile on my face almost the whole time I was reading.

Definitely one I would recommend! ( )
