LILA: THE SIGN OF THE ELVEN QUEEN by Mark J. Grant is an adventure for Young Readers/Fairy Tales/Folklore. An interesting read of how a little girl,Lila, becomes an Elven Princess. An enchanting modern day fairy tale from New York to Iceland. A magical and mystical story of the invisible people of Iceland. Alice in Wonderland move over and make room for Lila, the Elven Princess. An invisible dog, named Fluffy,the invisible people of Iceland and the adventure of a lifetime, what's not to enjoy? Fluffy is so much more than a dog and dreams do come true in "Lila: The Sign of the Elven Queen". A wonderful read for Young and old readers alike. Lila,is a grand child with a vivid imagination, and is a very special child. Well written,easy to read for older Young Readers,with engaging characters and an interesting non-scary modern-day Fairy Tale story. A great read! I do hope there will be more from this author and his Fairy Tales. Received for an honest review from the publisher.

What a delightful book! This book reminds me of the classics like Alice in Wonderland or The Wizard of Oz. My 11 year old loved it! I even got my 16 year old to read it! This is a great sit down to read to your younger kids before bed. There is nothing scary!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
