Fortune's Magic Farm -- signed copy, paperback
Everything changes when Isabelle
discovers that she is the heir to Fortune's Farm, a wondrous place where
the final remnants of magic grow. For as long as she can remember,
ten-year-old Isabelle has dreamed of escaping her home in Runny Cove, a
gray village where it never stops raining, and where she is forced to
work at Mr. Supreme's Umbrella Factory.
Journeying across the ocean, Isabelle finds a sunny new home filled
with magical delights, including Curative Cherry trees that can heal all
kinds of sickness, and Floating Fronds that make her fly. But Isabelle
still feels the call to return to Runny Cove and use the secrets of the
farm to stop the rain. With the magic of Fortune's Farm behind her, will
Isabell be strong enough to bring back the sun and stop the despicable
Mr. Supreme? From the author of Smells Like Dog comes a magical journey about loyalty, family, and the magic within.
