I’m so pleased to tell you all about my newest book! It’s a middle grade this time, and a fantasy story–my first! Just today, Kirkus posted their *starred* review online and I couldn’t be more excited by what they have to say:
This lyrical story has a once-upon-a-time quality and, like the best of fairy tales, an evil to be overcome, a magic charm, and a lesson to be gleaned. Crowder’s language is sumptuous, written with an elegiac quality that suits the wistful longings of her protagonists.
A quiet story of perseverance and hope, exquisitely written with words and images that demand savoring.
Isn’t that a fantastic review? Oh, and have you seen the cover yet? The artist is Zdenko Basic. I think he did an amazing job.
Thanks so much for sharing in my excitement for this, my third book! You can find the book summary, and links for purchase here.
Happy Perigee, dear readers!
