Description

Title: Summer and Bird
Author: Katherine Catmull
Release Date: 2nd October, 2012




Why I'm excited about it

THIS COVER. It is reeet up my street. Gorgeous and magical and AN OWL. Also the plot sounds good. Get my priorities straight eh. Described as an 'enchanting and twisted tale'. Yeahh give me some of that please.

What it's about... 


An enchanting—and twisted— tale of two sisters' quest to find their parents



When their parents disappear in the middle of the night, young sisters Summer and Bird set off on a quest to find them. A cryptic picture message from their mother leads them to a familiar gate in the woods, but comfortable sights quickly give way to a new world entirely— Down—one inhabited by talking birds and the evil Puppeteer queen. Summer and Bird are quickly separated, and their divided hearts lead them each in a very different direction in the quest to find their parents, vanquish the Puppeteer, lead the birds back to their Green Home, and discover the identity of the true bird queen.




With breathtaking language and deliciously inventive details, Katherine Catmull has created a world unlike any other, skillfully blurring the lines between magic and reality and bringing to life a completely authentic cast of characters and creatures.


Let me know which books you're looking forward to!
