Reva's Quest by Sue Perkins
Sue has written many fantasy books for juveniles, young adults and adults. She is presently branching out into self-publishing with her juvenile books.
Reva and her garden gnome arrive in Fey to fight the evil, Malice. Joined by three quest companions, they travel across the land to Malice’s lair. Only Reva can rid the world of Malice, but their journey brings danger, and she wonders if she will survive. Malice’s evil has invaded many of the animals and these beasts try to stop them reaching their goal. One of the companions begins to act strangely, and Reva must consider the possibility of a traitor in their midst.
A story suitable for a wide range of children. Can be read to younger children who will enjoy the likeable characters- especially gnomes which come to life. More proficient readers will gobble this story up. There is a deeper layer about loneliness and acceptance, which will resound with any child who has experienced being `the new kid'.
