Thank you so much to author Amie Borst for the ebook to read and review.

Review: When all the pegacorns go to the King of Wintersend to ask about winter ending, Callie stays behind too afraid to fly, she and her bird friend Noelle discover something magical an ice flower. Callie must go on an adventure to learn what they are about and overcome her fears of flying to save winter and Wintersend. 

This felt so much like the classic 80’s/90’s my little pony series it had that wonderful retro vibe to the way the story was told. I absolutely loved it. I loved the adventure that Callie went on with each step she learnt something new and tried something new and met someone new. 

There was a lot of lessons on offer whilst reading, you learnt about fears and how though it may not be easy they can be overcome, you learnt about friendship and having a good friend by yourself can get anything accomplished. It taught team work, and it taught self belief and determination. All very important lessons in life. They were all entwined into the story so naturally. 

This book was written in such a fun way, you were following Callie and Noelle on the adventure the whole time, knowing that she would eventually fly. It’s got so much to inspire young children with, never giving up and that friends are there for you no matter what to guide through the scary things and that magic can truly come from within. 

This would be a perfect book for children that are looking for something really magical to read. The whole story is magical, with magical characters, a wondrous world and so much more. It is a great chapter book and would also be great for early chapter book readers. It’s fun, easy and lighthearted to read and escape into.
