Overview

What if … a girl and her tooth fairy flew away to the realm called Nearandfar and the girl discovered she had more power than the fairies?

Page Truly is on a mission. It won’t be easy. There will be danger. Page will have to be very brave and very smart.
It all happens one night when a sassy tooth fairy brings a borrowed wand and a big attitude to Page’s bedroom. She makes it look like a wand can do anything. That is until Page has to save Nearandfar, and discovers that a magic wand is only as powerful as the gifted one who knows how to unlock its secrets and use it wisely.
Page Truly and The Journey To Nearandfar is a fun adventure for children and adults alike. It touches on the issues of leaving childhood, accepting responsibility, relying on friends, caring for others, and being brave when it seems as if you have no power at all. As it turns out, Nearandfar is not so near but not so far either – if you have a child’s belief in dreams.

Written for ages 7 to 11, this is award-winning author L B Gschwandtner’s first novel for children.

My daughter and I read this book together and we just can't stop talking about it. Page is a spunky young girl who meets the even spunkier tooth fairy, Serenfay and her adorable sidekick, Bag.

Page Truly is a great character, showing young female readers that a girl can indeed be a hero too. From the minute Page gets swept up in her journey, the reader will be carried along with her. The story is fast-moving and exciting, with the scenes of adventure and danger counterbalanced with funny, quirky touches. My favorite character is the hilarious "Bag," who doesn't speak but still manages to convey his opinions through gestures. Gschwandtner has a great gift for description and Nearandfar

What an utterly charming and delightful story! I was hooked from the first page by the beautiful prose and the captivating cast of characters. I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next. Woven throughout the story are Gschwandtner's vivid descriptions of nature and its creatures - real and imagined - so lovingly portrayed. It's obvious that she truly loves the natural world, and she has a gift for bringing it to life on the page. I was transported!
