My Review

Alyssa McCarthy parents died in a tragic accident five years ago.  Since then, she has been raised by her aunt and uncle.  After being with them for a few years her Aunt Laura passes away from a reaction to raspberries.  Now Uncle Bruce has become a strict guardian to Alyssa and her cousin Hailey.  No one believes in magic, especially not her uncle.  Will he listen before it's too late?  Will the evil wizard Duchamp get his way?

This was a great story about friendship, good versus evil, and love.  Alyssa is such a sweet character, you immediately fall in love with her and want her to win the battle against the villains.  I also enjoyed the unique mystical creatures.  Sunayna Prasad has an amazing imagination, I can't imagine any child not enjoying this book!
