Jessie L. Bestabout this book: If you bring your imagination with you when you read this book you will enjoy this fantasy because imagination, of course, is where fantasy begins. When I write my stories, the characters come from those images that are always in my mind, whether they be real people or cartoon like characters.
Krikkit is an ordinary girl with an ordinary life. You may relate to her struggle to keep her room clean and tidy and maybe her mom's laws are similar to the rules your own mom makes for you.
When Krikkit puts on the shiny black leather shoes she had found and hidden away under her bed, her ordinary life changes drastically. She discovers Kings, Queens and an ancient sorcerer or two when she is transported to D'Arragon. In no time she becomes involved in stopping a long ago prophecy from becoming a horrible reality that would change the royal dynasty forever.
Kirkus Reviews state: "Best's story has the same sort of longing that made The Wizard of Oz's Dorothy put on the ruby slippers and young readers will likely enjoy how she helps save the Kingdom."
If you are longing for a good adventure to read, you will definitely enjoy following Krikkit on her adventure with the magical shoes.
