THE WISE ENCHANTER - A JOURNEY THROUGH THE ALPHABET ~ SHELLEY DAVIDOW
Illustrated by Krystyna Kurzyca
This book has been a wonderful resource in our homeschool journey learning the alphabet and we are so happy to add it to our store. A wonderful book that introduces a new letter of the alphabet (in order) with each chapter. An illustration of the letter accompanies each chapter that reflects the advancement of the plot and incorporates the letter being introduced.
Words are disappearing from the world. Something is lurking in the deepest waters, devouring all the words that are no longer used. No one has noticed, but the world is slowly growing darker.
For many years no children have come to the Enchanted Islands in search of Wisdom, and the Wise Enchanter is growing old. Four children from the corners of the earth have been sent on a quest to rediscover each letter, unlock the treasure of language, and thereby grow wise.
Time is running out - if the children do not reach the castle of the Wise Enchanter in time, Wisdom and light may vanish from the world altogether.
- An exciting adventure story highlighting the importance of language
- Written by a Macmillan Writer's Prize for Africa nominee
- Enhanced with black and while illustrations throughout
Format: Paperback (254mm X 178mm) 160 pages
