In my opinion, books are the best accessory.
Rose and the Lost Princess by Holly Webb – 4th grade and up, Fantasy – Are you fond of fantasies? Downton Abbey? I’m terribly fond of both. When I read a recommendation for reading this book, someone suggested that the two – fantasy and Downton Abbey are combined in Rose and the Lost Princess, sold!
I already was lost in the original story about Rose and the discovery of her magical abilities when she was sent to work at a wizard’s home… but this book was a perfect stand alone and also a fantastic sequel. I loved getting lost in reading about the mob mentality that begins soon after the book begins and additionally how our main character Rose has to deal with ignorant, scared bullies. The story that ensues is a thick, complicated mystery that has fascinating adventures developing from a festival to a complicated relationship with a royal family to a special, complicated deception…

About Rose and the Lost Princess: Rose’s whole life has changed in a matter of weeks. She’s gone from being a lonely orphan to a magician’s apprentice, though she’s learned that power comes at a price. Even Rose’s friends don’t seem to trust her anymore, especially when rumors of dark magic begin to swirl through the city.
Then the country’s beloved princess vanishes, and the king asks Rose for her help. She must find the missing princess and put a stop to the evil magician behind the kidnapping… before all is lost.
About the Author: Holly was born and grew up in southeast London but spent a lot of time on the Suffolk coast. As a child, she had two dogs, a cat, and at one point, nine gerbils (an accident). At about ten, Holly fell in love with stories from Ancient Greek myths, which led to studying university. She worked for five years as a children’s fiction editor before deciding that writing was more fun and easier to do from a sofa. Now living in Reading with her husband, three sons, and two cats, Holly runs a Guide unit. The Rose books stem from a childhood love of historical novels and the wish that animals really could talk.
