"The Search for the Scepter" brings you on a magical journey! The vivid colors, fun word play, and imaginative land drew my girls in immediately. Each page had so much to explore! My girls wanted to read it again and again. I loved that two little girls are the heroines! It also works for a wide age group. I have a 11 and 7 year old and both were connected to the story. So fun to read!

In "The Search for the Scepter," sisters Rosalie and Scarlet set off on a journey to find their father’s, the king’s, stolen scepter. At each stop, they are directed to another magical creature or kingdom, where kindness and cooperation bring them closer to the thief. Readers can chase the thief with Rosalie and Scarlet as he appears just ahead of them on the pages. The "Search for the Scepter" is written in rhyme, and there is much to engage the reader in the detailed illustrations, including a map of the journey at the end of the book. A story to enjoy with your young reader.
