Fortune's Magic Farm
Ten-year-old Isabelle lives in Runny Cove where it’s always raining and the whole world has turned gray. When she gets a mysterious visitor with news of an unexpected inheritance, she leaps at the chance to a place full of sunshine . . . and magic! There, magic grows into cherries that cure ills and fronds that make her fly. But when Isabelle feels the call to return to Runny Cove and use the magic of the farm to stop the rain, her loyalty is put to the test. Can she choose between her new home and the one she left behind? In the spirit of Roald Dahl, Suzanne Selfors spins a wonderful and weird middle grade tale.Now in an entirely new package! An Imprint Book “Fortune’s Magic Farm is a love apple for all readers, delicious and magical.” —Grace Lin, Newbery Honor author of Where the Mountain Meets the Moon“Few authors have ever come close to being compared to Dahl, and nobody has his distinctive flavor. One of the very few authors to do so would have to be Suzanne Selfors....A pure pleasure to read for child and adult alike.” —Elizabeth Bird, School Library Journal, A Fuse #8 Production“Placing an indomitable character in situations as bleak as they are absurd, Selfors has written a darkly comic adventure in the tradition of Roald Dahl.” —Junior Library Guild “Beautiful writing, quirky characters, and an imaginative plot...make this a good choice, showing how one little girl can use her spirit to save the world.” —Booklist“Readers will cheer for Isabelle throughout the story.” —School Library Journal“Readers will cozy up to the tale’s quirky characters and enjoy the many twists and turns of this magical adventure.” —Kirkus Reviews“Hand this to fans of Eva Ibbotson, to kids who like their magic with some meat to it, and to adults who want a fabulous read-aloud.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books “This quirky book...is full of silly songs and vivid secondary characters.” —The Seattle TimesJunior Library Guild AwardFlorida Sunshine State Young Readers Award List (2012–13)Kansas’s William Allen White Children’s Book Award List (2011–12)2009 Austin Waldorf Children’s Choice Award, Gold Medal in the third- and fourth-grade category
