Tales of Fontania – vol. 3

Dorrity is the only child in magic-free Owl Town. When she finds an enchanted book with dire predictions, she must face her enemies. And who is the strange boy who has appeared in the Beastly Dark?

This stand-alone pre-teen adventure/fantasy novel is third book in the ‘Tale of Fontania’ series of novels. Filled with humour, action, adventure, and magic, this is a truly gripping read featuring a large and memorable cast of characters.

by Barbara Else 


“This enthralling tale can be read as a stand-alone novel or as part of the award-winning Fontania series. All three books in the series will appeal to pre-teens who enjoy well-written stories with a touch of magic, humour, and plenty of action.” – Bookrapt (NZ)


“Else contrives a plot that leaves neither characters nor readers much chance to catch their breaths . An entertaining romp, more comical than scary and with a poignant but hopeful close.” – Kirkus Reviews


“An excellent tale of magic, adventure, invention, humour and silliness [and] snappy, witty dialogue between the characters.” – Your Weekend (NZ)
