Sample Chapter

Silver Mountain Forest

Far, far away, in a distant land where the wind sings lullabies and the rainbows paint dreams, there stands a tall and proud mountain. A silver Tipsy-Turvy River winds in and out of its rocks, down and around the mountain all the way to the rich green forest that lies at its base.

The Silver Mountain Forest is no ordinary forest. It is, in fact, home to every sort of woodland creature imaginable. From talking bugs and birds to pixies and sprites; from grumpy gnomes and goblins to the good fairy folk; all of them live happily in the enchanted kingdom of the Silver Mountain Forest.

Why are they called fair folk? Because their magic is born from their inner goodness and grace. The first fairies to ever grace the Earth were so good in fact that their hair shone like the sun and their wings sparkled like the stars. They were so full of grace that each plant they talked to grew a little more fruit than usual, each flower they kissed became more colorful and each animal they petted lived a bit longer. Indeed their good grace inspired life in all of the universe.

There were one or two fairies that preferred to be tricky, and over time they lost their sparkle and glow. Feeling different from the others, they hid deep within the forest in the cold, dark nooks and crannies, where they’d sit all day and night thinking cold, dark thoughts. But that’s a story for another day…

For the fairies, the word ‘home’ is a magical word. They adore their home so dearly that this love, like magic, has the power to break even the darkest spell. Every night, just before bedtime, when all the rainbows return to Silver Mountain Forest, the fairy home becomes even more enchanting. If you have ever seen the end of a rainbow unveiled through the evening mist, you will know it is a wondrous thing to behold. It looks like a shower of colourful floating dandelion seeds which the fairies love to chase and catch because each seed contains a dream. Well, we all know how powerful dreams can be!

Some fairies live in their very own mushroom houses with windows, doors and a kitchen, while other fair folk prefer the hollowed-out trunks of old trees which they decorate with crystal dewdrops and glow-worm lanterns.

Towering over this little town of mushroom-houses is the Grand Old Oak Palace, where everyone meets on special occasions. It was in this Palace that Princess Raena lived.
