An exciting new book from author Anne Nesbet is coming this fall! THE WRINKLED CROWN, coming this November 10th, 2015 from Harper Collins is a tale about magic, music, war and friendship! This sounds like my kind of book. I'm thrilled to team up with Anne to share the cover to THE WRINKLED CROWN. 

Check out this cover ........

Isn't this cover fabulous? I adore this cover! There's something magical about children's book covers that I love. This cover screams read me, and promises an exciting adventure. 

About the Book (from the book's jacket):

     "Up in the magical, wrinkled hills, Linny breaks an ancient law. No matter how musical a girl may be, she must not so much as touch a string of a lourka before she turns twelve, or she'll be spirited off to Away. But Linny, born nimble-fingered and tune-filled, can't resist: she makes a lourka of her very own. When the curse meant for her strikes her best friend instead, Linny must leave her home behind to try to set things right.

     If you leave the wrinkled hills, you will never find your way home--everyone knows that other law. But Linny has the gift of not getting lost, and she will risk everything to rescue her friend. With her father's young apprentice, Elias, she travels down into the Plain, where science may have found a cure for magic. Linny and Elias soon find themselves caught up in the age-old battle between the wrinkled places and the Plain. Can Linny keep the fractured land from falling apart—and save her best friend?"

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
