A Tale of Magic - Review Squad


A Tale of Magic

Chris Colfer

Ages 8-12


When Brystal Evergreen stumbles across a secret section of the library, she discovers a book that introduces her to a world beyond her imagination and learns the impossible: She is a fairy capable of magic! But in the oppressive Southern Kingdom, women are forbidden from reading and magic is outlawed, so Brystal is swiftly convicted of her crimes and sent to the miserable Bootstrap Correctional Facility.

But with the help of the mysterious Madame Weatherberry, Brystal is whisked away and enrolled in an academy of magic! Adventure comes with a price, however, and when Madame Weatherberry is called away to attend to an important problem she doesn't return.

Do Brystal and her classmates have what it takes to stop a sinister plot that risks the fate of the world, and magic, forever?


"I have thoroughly enjoyed reading a Tale of Magic. Brystal Evergreen says an incantation and discovers that she has magic. Though at first, she thought that she was a witch, it turns out that she is a fairy. Shortly after she discovers this, the mysterious Madame Weatherby takes her to a school of magic. I would highly recommend a tale of magic to fans of the Land of Stories."
