Reviewed by Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite Almara has just turned twelve. That makes her special. For it is only a twelve-year-old who can help King Just reclaim the seven stolen treasures and restore them to the castle. He has asked Almara and her brother, Tommy, to find the stolen treasures, now hidden all over the kingdom. In return, the siblings will become the King's heirs to the Kingdom of Tero. Why seven treasures? Well, seven is a much-used mythical and magical number. It suggests a fantasy-like fairy tale and that's what this story is. The Seven Hidden Treasures by Mary Beyra is a 'sit down together and read aloud together' story for all ages, one that will be treasured for a long time. The story is written in the fashion of the Brothers Grimm and it includes an enchanted forest and a witch, and lots of evil characters that threaten the children on their journey. The Seven Hidden Treasures is an epic journey, one that makes fables and fairy tales well cherished. It may appear like a simple quest - a journey of discovery to retrieve the seven stolen treasures - but it's also a quest to find out what's good and evil in humanity and how one cannot judge a person's true character by the way they look. A classic example is the young girl, Elizabeth, whom Almara and Tommy meet on their journey. Elizabeth is confined to a wheelchair, but she is the most beautiful person, inside and out, and she creates stunning paintings of the world around her. Whereas the gray witch can disguise herself as a beautiful woman, but her evil remains apparent. Mary Beyra has written a classic fairy tale/fable told in the age-old art of storytelling. This story needs to be read aloud and shared as a family. Lots of hidden messages and lessons to be learned. Outstanding!
