Freya and the Magic Cloak
Written by Nanna Aida Svendsen
Illustrated by Sue Scullard
Do you believe in magic? Thomas does. One night young Thomas meets Freya, a snow fairy he has wished for on a magic crystal. She tells him all about her magic cloak and how it protects the fairies. "Why should fairies need protection?" he wonders. " Because we're in danger of being destroyed" she responds.And so begins the grand adventure of Freya and the Magic Cloak. Its a tale filled with enchanted creatures like talking owls and mice who put aside their differences to rescue Freya and Thomas from an evil ogre.
Complementing the story perfectly are Sue Scullard's superbly textured, highly decorative watercolours, 17 full coloured plates in all. The extraordinary detail she has lavished on every painting, adds remarkable dimension to every chapter.
