Marvelous Middle Grade Monday
I love how Story Magic (Jolly Fish Press, 2020) by Laurel Gale dives right into a magical world where stories are magic.
Kaya A’Dor isn’t supposed to know anything about the listeners and the magic they will do if you tell them a good enough story. But she’s learned enough from her older brother Hob to attempt a story herself despite it being forbidden to girls and women. When Hob is taken prisoner, Kaya’s sure it is her fault and she has to save him. Will she survive the dangers of her journey? Especially since it will require more story magic?
This story is a page turner. And isn’t that a lovely cover?
Read about Laurel here where you can also see pictures of animals she’s taken.
I recommended Laurel’s other books too: Dead Boy and Monster, Human, Other.

That is a great cover and the story sounds equally great. Thanks for featuring on MMGM.
You just had to enlarge the cover — it is absolutely beautiful. This story is a lovely twist on magic. Looks good. Thanks for sharing!
This sounds like a fantastic book! I love the idea of stories being magical, and I’m intrigued by the siblings’ relationship as well. Thanks for spotlighting this neat book!
Is it Magical Realism/fabulism? Possibly my favorite. It seems like a fairytale with a contemporary re-framing.
That is a very enticing cover. This sounds like a very magical story. Thanks for telling me about it.
I’m intrigued! And what a great title!
