Zally Guevara always knows where she's going. She has a passion for maps of all kinds and can't wait to pack her suitcase and explore the world. But Zally doesn't have to wait to get her wish. With the help of a cup of magical cocoa from her grandmother, she travels to a place that only girls training to become fairy godmothers can get to—the enchanted dreamland of Aventurine, a place that has no map.

In Aventurine, Zally is given her quest: to save a fairy queen who has lost her will to live. Zally's companions are a young fairy with a broken wing, and a stallion prince. The trio's journey proves to be even more challenging than they could have imagined as they meet monsters and get lost in a ruined fairy city. All the while, Zally is making a map of Aventurine and discovering that she has a talent, passed down from generations of women in her family: understanding the thoughts of animals. But will this be enough to save the fairy queen and ensure that Zally can continue her fairy-godmother training?

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara Wheatley
Zally hates getting up early to work daily in her family's Guatemalan bakery, but enjoys waiting on customers since she can talk to them about places they have traveled and visited. One evening after a day in the bakery, her grandmother brings her a steaming cup of hot cocoa or chocolatl as she calls it. She tells Zally about the magic that cocoa beans have and gives her a cacao pod that has been in the family for generations. Zally learns that she is a descendent of the Inocentes Lineage of Fairy Godmothers and has special talents that many people would see as magic. Finding all of this difficult to believe, Zally places the cacao pod in her Maya-patterned bag and falls asleep. When she awakes she realizes she is actually in Aventurine, the land in the stories her mother and grandmother had shared with her for years. Here she is met by the fairy queen and after writing in the Book of Dreams, the same book her mother and grandmother wrote in, she begins her quest. This quest is to help a fairy and her golden horse cousin save the queen of the Shell Fairies, a trip that is more challenging than they imagined. Along the way, Zally uses her talent for making maps to create the first map of Aventurine and learns about her talent to understand and talk to animals. This story from "The Fairy Godmother Academy" series will delight young readers with a magical and exciting adventure in a new land. While creative in its intent, the occasional dark watermarked artwork often distracts from the printed work on the page, but the text wrapped artwork is more effective in giving the reader a visual without making the story hard to read.

Meet the Author

Jan Bozarth was raised in an international family in Texas in the sixties, the daughter of a Cuban mother and a Welsh father. She danced in a ballet company at eleven, started a dream journal at thirteen, joined a surf club at sixteen, studied flower essences at eighteen, and went on to study music, art, and poetry in college. As a girl, she dreamed of a life that would weave these different interests together. Her dream came true when she grew up and had a big family and a music and writing career. Jan is now a grandmother and writes stories and songs for young people. She often works with her own grown-up children, who are musicians and artists in Austin, Texas. (Sometimes Jan is even the fairy godmother who encourages them to believe in their dreams!) Jan credits her own mother, Dora, with handing down her wisdom: Dream big and never give up.
