Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy

Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy - Karen Foxlee This book was provided to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

This was a delightful story. It reminds me a lot of Narnia with the snow queen and her heart of ice. I loved the boy and Ophelia was a treasure. The setting was in a museum; what a unique and perfect setting for a middle grade adventure such as this. Picturing Ophelia running through the museum searching or the boy or the magic sword was so vivid, it felt like a movie.

So eti,ex you just need a wonderfully perfect book that is short, sweet, and full of imagination. For me it's more often than just sometimes, which is why I really value books like these that feel as classic as Narnia but are also as fresh as something new. I definitely recommend this book to everyone! It's so much fun, I'd read it again and I'd read anything this author puts out in a heartbeat.
